In Japan it’s “Pocky Day” today, as determined by the Glico company, who are the makers of Pocky…nice marketing ploy there :P
The reason it’s Pocky Day is because November 11th, or specifically 11/11, looks like a row of Pocky ^_^;
Anyway, it’s a good excuse to eat more yummy Pocky ;)
We brought a few different Pocky flavours back with us from our last trip to Japan….they were all quite different, and all yummy ^^
The Matcha Chocolate flavour was really nice, mixing the flavours of chocolate and green tea :)
Berry Carnival has a really nice fruity flavour to it, and the coating on the Pocky biscuit is quite thick, so you get a soft bite before the snack of the biscuit ^^
This next one was our favourite of these three, but with an odd name (at least I thought so); Adult Milk flavour ;>.>
The Pocky biscuit is thicker and more crunchy, and the coating is a rich milk flavour which is supposed to be more suited to adult’s tastes rather than children’s…hence the name.
