5. Japan Candy Box

Established in 2002, the Kawaii Group out of Hong Kong has been doing this for quite some time, so they’re not noobs to the game. Their motto is “even the smallest amount of cuteness can provide a huge boost of joy and happiness to your everyday life. Just remember to stay kawaii!”

  • Prices range from $29.99 to a $99.99 mega box a month.

7. Snakku

8. Wow Box

Nothing about who they are other than them being Wow/Now, Inc.

Sidenote: Skoshbox in their own words was the “original monthly service for snacks and candy from Japan” unfortunately shutdown as of April 25th, 2018.


  1. I remember boxes and subscription services being all the rage last year–okay, rage is perhaps the wrong word, but lots of bloggers and vloggers were reviewing them–big marketing push I assume.
    I hadn’t heard about any of them recently. Glad you’re on top of it. I have always liked the idea, just never found one that was perfect for me–though I have some ideas that could help some companies move out their dead stock.

    1. I think anything that is on my blog, I approach it to learn more about it, and I’m with you about subscription boxes although they are here to stay. Looking at their site traffic, I can only imagine that their revenue is not that far behind it, and I have only seen one company go out of business which was Skoshbox – also the other reason I do these posts is keep my digital marketing abilities sharp (content marketing)… it’s like a butter knife, haha
