Bokksu is a subscription box all about traditional Japanese candies and snacks – not traditional in the mass marketed sense (Glico, Tohato, etc), but small batch, artisan foods.
For February, they’re going in a slightly different – albeit exciting! – direction.
For Valentine’s Day this year, we are beyond excited to offer something extra special to you our cherished Bokksu Members. I am of course talking about Limited Edition Japanese Kit Kats! Why settle for a normal box of chocolates when you can now sample adventurous yet super tasty flavors like Rum Raisin, Sake, and much more!
Kit Kats were first introduced in Japan in 1973. Since then, Japanese Kit Kats have exploded to over 300 flavors including limited, seasonal, and region specific editions! No wonder Japan is the second largest consumer of Kit Kats after England! Part of its popularity comes from the Japanese pronunciation of Kit Kat, which is similar to the phrase “Kitto Katsu” (きっと勝つ), which means “definite victory”. Thanks to this linguistic coincidence, Kit Kat is now ubiquitously gifted to hopeful exam takers all over Japan as a good luck charm. This month we’ll take you on a wild (but tasty) ride of 8 limited edition Kit Kat flavors from Sake to Wasabi. So sit back, have a break, and most importantly have a Kitto Katto!
