all the pocky!

we ate a bunch of pocky (the coated japanese sticks) while in thailand, so many that by the end of the trip i was starting to get a bit sick of them… but thoroughly schooled on all the different flavours available. there are so many of them!

i think that’s part of what makes it fun, as it feels like there’s always something new to try. plus, they’re bite-sized and coated with just enough sweetness that one stick is sometimes just the right dose. here are some of my favourites:

choco-banana and mango had such irresistibly cute drawings of monkeys and elephants on the package. although… what is the elephant doing on the mango package? :|

the matcha flavoured pocky look a bit more serious, but this was probably my favourite flavour. i don’t think i’ve ever met a matcha-something i didn’t like :D

and the original is always nice. in hindsight, i wish we had discovered “glicode” (glico is the name of the japanese brand that makes pocky) before we had left thailand though — we could have had fun playing with it!
