We also have an online store where customers can purchase bulk orders of some of the candies included in our past subscription boxes; we will be adding bulk orders in the very near future. Many German customers have difficulty making online subscriptions (PayPal in Germany is set up through bank accounts instead of using credit cards which doesn’t allow recurring payments) so we have created a system to collect 3, 6 and 12 month bundles up front and ship packages out over that period of time. We do not automatically renew these bundles, so they are perfect for gifts (you don’t have that awkward, “I have to cancel your subscription present now” situation).

Ships Worldwide. They offer three sizes in boxes, and always have spoilers posted on their site. Note their shipping schedule – boxes are paid for months in advance. I would recommend this as more of a sampler, as each box doesn’t vary much in terms of treats sent. You do get a lot for your money, but it’s all the same items each month.

The following boxes are currently closed to new subscribers and/or are undergoing revisions.
—-NekoSnacks – 10$+ Per Month
Ships Worldwide. Highly avoid; this box was originally announced in early August as a revolutionary snack box meant to replace most others because of the large amount of snacks it offered for the price point. Unfortunately, red flags started popping up almost immediately. 1. They went deathly silent on instagram (their only social contact) two weeks before their scheduled launch. 2. When responding to an inquiry that many of you had, they revealed they were based in Florida, making free international shipping absolutely ludicrous (and financially impossible) for the amount of snacks they were promising. 3. Delays ensued, as expected (many of you subscribed based on when we initially advertised them as a new box). 4. When the boxes finally arrived, they contained next to nothing, and especially nothing promised (scroll to comments).
Avoid this box for now; I only hope they can get their act together and will keep you updated on their progress. Good luck to Neko Snacks.
—- Cutie Pie Kawaii J-Candy Box – 18$ Per Month
*Subscriptions are currently closed
—- Oishii Box – 15$ Per Month (Paypal)
Ships to US Only. OishiiBox’s website appears to be having massive issues. Their last facebook update was in 2014, and the last box review I can find is from March. Considering how many problems these guys have had since inception, I can’t recommend this box. Buy at your own risk.
—- GrubBox – 24$ Per Month
US Only. GrubBox hasn’t updated their social media presence in well over a year, nor do they seem to be sending out boxes or replying to comments. I think it’s safe to say that these guys are no longer active.
—- GachaBox – 30$ Per Month
Ships Worldwide. GachaBox is another box born through Instagram. It currently on accepts orders through the DM system on the application, though it is working on a website. The box will contain both sweet and savory snacks with the added tagline, “You won’t find this in your local grocery store.” #shade. GachaBox will also feature a special edition box each month, and August’s is pocky.These guys just kind of disappeared. —- ABCDEat Box – 21.99$ Per Box
A brand new box run by a lovely beauty blogger, she has a variety of different types of themed snack boxes. Snacks may not be exclusively Japanese. Ships to most countries.

Ships Worldwide. This is a new sweets centered box from Japan but it has no information with it other than a projected modest 16$+ price tag. There is no way to order, though the box is set to debut in August. I’ll update you as I get more information.
Note: As of September 14th, these guys have still not launched. —- OishiiFun – 25$ Per Month (Paypal) Ships Worldwide. A newer box focusing more on favorites like Koala’s March and NeruNeru DIY kits. This box doesn’t send as many items as others, and seems to be much more savory oriented. – January ’15 OishiiFun Review (MarinaSauce) —- OmNomBox – 25$ Per Month
Ships Worldwide. OmNomBox is one of the few Asian snack subscriptions that sends out drinks. There’s a drink in each box, and the snacks are both sweet and savory, and there’s usually a mystery snack. Snacks come from Taiwan, Japan and China.
