Skoshbox - 2 Month Giveaway!!!


As many (or some) of you may know we've been impatiently waiting to hear where the Navy is sending us next. Well, we've got the answer. By the end of the year I will living in..... JAPAN! I am beyond excited and a little terrified. I've got to get a 10 month old and two dogs to get to the other side of the world. In anticipation of the big move I've been enjoying Skoshbox. It's a monthly box of Japanese goodness. At only $12 a month it's very affordable.

So here's what it looks like:

 Inside the box it already seems very Japanese with the nicely folded paper and simplicity.

 Awa Dama Candy

 Black Sesame Mochi

 Matcha Gum Pack
 Soft Salad Sembei

At first the Black Sesame Mochi scared me. It looked like some type of black licorice and I am not a fan. Turns out it was nothing like that and it was probably my favorite item in the box. I will definitely be looking for those in Japan. The Awa Dama is always a favorite in my house. I can't think of anything in the US that compares. 

In honor of my big move Skoshbox has graciously offered one of my readers a two month subscription!! Come and join me on my Japanese adventure.
