Haichu Anyone? Skoshbox Delivers Monthly Fill of Japanese Treats and Candies to your Door

From candies made with adzuki bean paste to beef tongue ice-cream, Japanese taste can be quite different at time from American or European palates.

If you had a taste of it while in Japan or simply want to discover what all the fuss is about, Skoshbox offers a monthly subscription model that delivers a box of Japanese goodies to your door.

Some of the August selection is pictured below.


Deadline for orders placed in August was August 17 for box of treats to be received in October.

Thanks to Humble Bean for putting Skoshbox on my radar.
