I’m a bit late on this one, sorry! I’ve been busy with the holidays and adopting a new kitten, so Skoshbox was put on the backburner for longer than I’d like. That being said, this box was a very nice change from November’s and I was excited to review it ever since it arrived in the mail!
Skoshbox had stated a few months ago that it would be forming a partnership with Tokyo Otaku Mode, but things wouldn’t really change much. Needless to say, I was kind of surprised when I saw how different November’s box looked from the previous ones. It’s still blue, but taller, resulting in a space above the snacks. This space isn’t necessarily a good thing, as it makes you feel like you’re not getting a whole lot in the box.
(Note: Sailor Moon isn’t included in this box, unfortunately. She’s just a little Prism Cafe Ochatomo figure I bought on Amazon a while ago. She’s very cute!)
Still, I’ll look past that and see how November’s selection holds up.
I didn’t end up reviewing last month’s box because it was honestly very underwhelming, and I wasn’t particularly inspired to take the time to talk about it. The inclusion of another umeboshi candy and another sour cola gummy was unappealing to me, and there wasn’t anything in the box that was so great it made up for those two lackluster choices.
That being said, this month’s box is much better, so I’m happy to review it!
I’m back to reviewing regular Skoshboxes again! The Dekabox was a lot of fun, but also a lot of food; I couldn’t handle eating all of those Japanese snacks every month, so I’m honestly glad to be returning to the regular size.
July is my birthday month, and my boyfriend surprised me with a Dekabox! Normally, we just get the Skoshbox, since it would be difficult to keep up with all of the snacks the Dekabox provides, but I’ll admit that I was always pretty curious about how the middle sized subscription option fared in comparison to the small.
A few weeks ago, a monthly subscription service called Japan Funbox contacted me about writing a review for them. They offered to send me a Mini box to write about, and I thought that was an excellent idea! I mean, I’ve been writing Skoshbox reviews for a while now, and I can always go for more Japanese snacks! So, here we are with my review for the Mini sized Japan Funbox.
