Happy weekend! How are you spending the first weekend of summer?
Relaxing and enjoying the sunshine, I hope.
Have you ever had Pocky before?
It’s a Japanese snack. Originally, they were biscuit sticks covered in chocolate or strawberry. But now, there’s a ton of flavors out there.
I’ve tried so many different ones over the years. Whenever I’m at the Asian supermarket, I walk through the snack section to see if there’s a new flavor that I haven’t tried yet. And when I find a new one, I’m 99% likely to buy a box to try. It’s a guilty pleasure. The latest one I found is this red bean flavor. The biscuit sticks are covered in chocolate and red bean.
Do you have a favorite Pocky flavor? And while we’re talking about Japanese snacks, what flavors of Kit Kats have you tried? =)
