Not gonna lie: In America, we have pretty decent snack game, from our revered delicacy Flamin' Hot Cheetos to our penchant for inventing such advanced edible creations as chocolate-hazelnut Uncrustables and Nerds Gummy Clusters

But if you've ever traveled outside the US, you probably know by now that some other parts of the world have really incredible snack juju—with Japan possibly taking the (mochi) cake when it comes to who reigns supreme. Where should we begin? The gazillion incredible flavors of Kit Kats, mochi, gummies, and soda? The delectable aromas of yuzu, sakura, and satsuma? The impeccable textures of crunchy rice crackers, crispy Pocky, and fluffy breads??? If you know, friends, you know. 

Which is why we're very excited that Bokksu, an online emporium for amazing Japanese snack subscription boxes, just launched a market section on its site where you can snag all your favorites a la carte. Grape gummies, shrimp chips, Hokkaido butter-flavored chips—the gang's all here.  And best of all, you, our VICE-reading friend, can use the code VICE15 at checkout to get 15% off your first order.
