Another day, another Pocky. Pocky is truly the treat with the most variety ever. The good thing is the variety isn't the same old things; some of the varieties of Pocky 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 taste. 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. 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. Even worse, hey maybe some of my construction buddies might want a stick, assuming they can look beyond the pink pack. What do they get, a little pink stick. A guy could get beat up for giving out pink sticks. Sure I could buy the Pocky for men, but maybe I like strawberry, does that make me less of a man?
