Pocky "Strawberry"


Another day, another Pocky. Pocky is truly the treat with the most variety ever. I think they come out with a new Pocky every day, or at the very least I’m discovering new Pocky every day. The good thing is the variety isn't the same old things you normally get when candy companies come out with new versions of their snacks. While I generally don’t mind many of the varieties of Pocky, some of the varieties are both tasty and frightening. Fortunately for me, this particular flavour shouldn't be too much to handle.

What I like about this particular strawberry flavour is the creamy flavour. As I've mentioned in the past, I'm a big fan of berries in cream. These little sticks taste just like a bowl of fake strawberries in cream, and I'm a happy camper eating them. To add even more, they're crunchy too, not sure why this is better, but I have great faith in crunchy things today.

I guess the only real problem I have with these might be the over use of the colour pink. I'm a guy, I'm into guy things, or at least that's what I'm told. Now I can't exactly go to visit my friends at a construction site (if I had friends that did construction) with a pink box of Pocky. Even worse, maybe some of my construction buddies might want a stick of Pocky, assuming they can look beyond the pink pack, what they get is a little pink stick. A guy could get beat up for giving out pink sticks on a construction site. Sure I could buy the Pocky for men, but maybe I like strawberry, does that make me less of a man?
