Bokksu Founder, Danny Taing, is reinventing snacking as a highly sophisticated cultural affair. Taing lived in Japan for many years and fell in love with traditional Japanese culture and the myriad of unique flavors he experienced. Upon returning to New York City, he was disappointed when he was unable to continue enjoying his favorite Japanese snacks. Taing admits a deep passion for Japanese snacks and culture: “I was fortunate to have had the opportunity to live in and adventure through Japan, which inspired me to create Bokksu. Inviting curious individuals to explore Japanese culture through their taste and imagination is our primary mission.”
Poised to redefine worldwide snacking traditions as they near their 2 year anniversary this May, Bokksu is the only subscription box service of its kind delivering a curated mix of gourmet, traditional, and longtime family-favorite snacks directly from Japan. A combination Tasting Menu and Culture Guide is included in every Bokksu along with a tea pairing for the box to further create opportunities to slow down, enjoy a snacking ritual, and invite loved ones to explore with you and join in!
Rare, gourmet, sought after snacks and delicacies are included in each box. For example, April’s “Blossoming Spring” box which features the world’s first white chocolate-infused strawberry – made with organic strawberries and white chocolate by innovative producer Qua. Previous boxes featured limited edition Kit Kats such as Mandarin Orange and exclusive collaborations like the heavenly Caramelized Apple Cobbler from world-renowned Japanese pastry shop ChikaLicious.
