Snakku Review

January 30, 2016

I had a hell of a time getting this video done. I ran into so many problems. Sorry if the quality is not up to par with most. I hope to get better with it! orz You can see the video at the end of this post.

Anyway, got my second Snakku box in and since my health is getting better I figured it was time to actually do a small review. As I mentioned in a previous post, Snakku is – so far – my favorite subscription box. I’m going to review the other three boxes I will be getting in soon.

So, here is what I got this time-

Tirolian – A treat that has been around since 1630 (according to Snakku). It was a nice light snack wafer cookie that was shaped like a cylinder with cream filling in the middle. I got Chocolate, Vanilla, Strawberry, and Coffee. I enjoyed this since it wasn’t too filling or too sweet.

Tirolian Hat – Just like the first one but instead of cylinder it was very thin and flat circle with a small spread of filling on the inside. I enjoyed this one too but I didn’t see any difference in taste if there was suppose to be one.

Tirolian Chococrunch – Probably my favorite of the tirolian bunch. It was a nice crispy chocolate with the wafer chunks. I could probably keep eating these and that is something since I don’t particularly care for chocolate stuff.

Hanachidori – Bean paste! I guess that is something to get use too or an acquired taste. I don’t dislike it but I don’t love it either. I liked the one with the mixed egg yolk best.

Pretz Corn – This was like a pocky but without the cream cover. Instead it was lightly flavored with a strong sweet corn taste. First time I bit into it I though I had opened a can of sweet corn somewhere. If you love sweet corn you will love it.

Happy Turn – Basically small pieces of rice crackers with lightly covered sweet sugar (or something) on them. Yummy, but I love rice crackers.

Yaki Imo – I think this was the one treat I did not like. That is because I HATE sweet potatoes but if you love them I bet this would be great for you. Just a soft bread like cookie that taste like baked sweet potato.

Kuromame Senbei – My favorite treat in the box. Rice crackers with black beans. I love rice crackers and I love black beans. Haha. It had a very nice flavor – they called it earthy – so now my mind thinks of it that way.

Lemon Yogurt Candy – This was really yummy candy. The top was the lemon, so it was smooth and hard like a typical hard candy. The yogurt part was the bottom and it was kind of chalky but it was not bad. When mixed together it gave a great sweet/tart taste. I was surprised.

Here is the tasting video –

    The unboxing video isn’t working for me ;(. Good to hear that this is your favorite box! It looks like you got a good amount of goodies in it! The interesting one I like would probably be the Kuromame Senbei. I love rice cracker and black beans! Sweet potatoes are usually a hit or miss. Though it taste better when it’s salted and baked crispy!

    I’ve seen Tirolian Hat’s around but never gave it a try. Sounds pretty interesting though!

    Hope the sub boxes keep on impressing you~~

      Aw, I wonder why it won’t work for you. Strange indeed. Yes! That was so delicious! I wish I had more. ā™„

    The Tirolian treats sound so good! The flavors all sound good and simple, so something that I would like haha! I’m not sure I’d care too much for the bean paste though, haha. Thanks for sharing!

    I’m glad you loved this box so much! I hope future ones will be just as good!

      Yeah, I like those simple kind of treats best.
      I’m the same, bean paste is kinda not at the top of my list of things I would want to eat.

    I haven’t heard of Tirolian! Those sound like tasty snacks. Like you said, I feel like bean paste is an acquired taste. I grew up with it and like it, but my husband thinks it’s totally weird, haha.

    I really like Pretz, though I’ve never had the corn one. The flavor I like is Pretz Salad!

    The Lemon Yogurt Candy sounds nice too. I love sweet and tart together in candy or a dessert. I feel like they balance each other out.

    This seems like a really cool box to get!

      Haha, yeah I don’t hate it but every time I eat one I have to remind myself what it is. If I bit into one without being prepared I would probably spit it out. ^^;;

    How awesome! I don’t think I’ve had any of these snacks. (Ahhh more temptation to sign up, but no, must fight it!) I absolutely love red bean paste, but I grew up with this. These are all such interesting snacks…

    Ah videos are definitely a lot of work and I’ve only made one video. It wasn’t perfect, but I didn’t care enough by the time I finished recording. So bravo to you for taking the time to make videos.

      Haha! Yeah, Snakku is sooo good. I really like the owner of the box place, he is very kind. Yeah, the video thing is a lot of work. I have had practice with my cosplay stuff (that is no longer online) but trying to get it right when it comes to just sitting still was harder than I thought! lol

    I think the video is really good. I am sure that doing more of them you will become a master of the editing. I also love how organised your shelves are! šŸ˜€

      Thank you! ā™„ Haha, yeah I’m a bit of a neat freak. šŸ™‚

    The Tirolian Chococrunch and the Lemon Yoghurt Candy both sound amazing. The whole thing has my mouth watering!

      Haha yeah it really is. My absolute favorite box. I’m sad to have to cancel it for a while.
