June Skoshbox Review
First, before we get to Skoshbox, I have some Vine videos and with them are pictures of some of the items in the box. My children tried every single thing in the box and ate about 95% of the entire thing.
I fed my kids the Skoshbox for dinner (hey, why not, it was so fun!) and afterwards my daughter asked if we could now have some food that makes us healthy. Yay! But seriously, our Skoshbox experience was like traveling to Japan with our tastebuds and a really fun experience for me and my kids. There were tons of flavors and textures that were unfamiliar to them and because of the Japanese packaging they were so receptive to the experience. I totally recommend it and Skoshbox made it so easy to do for just twelve bucks.
So Skoshbox has this information card and when you look at the items and the card it is a little overwhelming but I promise when you start tasting everything it is totally apparent what it is (except we have no clue what the corn puff thingy flavors were). One of the items was different than what was on the card, but Skoshbox told me this could be the case because it was a review box. So no panties in a wad because it was different!
Also, this box is so cute and packed so well. It ships from Hawaii and those treats are really straight from Japan!
We started with Umaibo. It WAS dinner after all (savory corn puff thingys). A tried a bite. E loved it. What a dude! He ate both. Then we did the strawberry candy (haichu) and the soy rice crackers (senbei). And the Koala’s March chocolate cream filled cookies were a hit. (did I need to tell you that?)
HAY IF YOU’RE READING THIS IN A NEWS READER OR EMAIL YOU GOTTA CLICK THROUGH FOR THE VIDEOS! (there’s probably some fancy way of doing that but it’s late)
I generally tried to make the kids conform to sweet-savory alternating. M&M like candy. But way cooler because they have cute pictures and nice colors.
And the chocoball candy.
Milk Hard Candy (which was firmish but not scary for kids but obviously people, supervise your children when they eat!).
Orion Beer Nuts (really good)
In the video my daughter is asking why the nuts are so spicy
We finally got to the Look bar and Vine ate half the video. I was afraid they wouldn’t like the green tea/bean mixture but they ate it like champs!
Gratuitous Look Chocolate Bar photos. The green/cream dots indicate that the center columns of chocolate are different than the outside ones.
We finished off the dinner with Orange bubble gum. I think they swallowed it. E fed the gum to one of the Playmobil knights. You can sign up for Skoshbox here.
