Pocky - Almond crush

I was so excited when I saw this at my local Chinese grocery 'Tong Li', because it's very rare to find genuine Japan-made snacks & sweets outside Japan, unless you go to a authentic Japanese grocery. Sure you can find lots of Japanese brand confectionery & snacks outside Japan, but most of them are made in other countries like Thailand, Singapore or China, and they're NOT genuinely made in Japan. Up till now, I could only get genuinely made in Japan snacks & sweets either online, or from a authentic Japanese grocery (and we have very few here in Australia).
I was particularly excited when I saw this Pocky at Tong Li, because unlike most Japanese brands they sell which are made in a different country, this one is genuinely made and imported directly from Japan! Honestly, I was really surprised that they're selling genuine Japan-made Pocky now. But I'm not getting my hopes up just yet, because authentic Japan-made snacks & sweets are quite expensive to bulk purchase & export, and then retail in mass stores & groceries overseas. Then again, this is probably why Japanese sweets & snacks which are made in other countries are much more commonly found overseas. So I am not expecting Tong Li to make a 180 degrees turn and start selling a whole bunch of food directly imported from Japan. But I'm thankful that they're at least selling ONE authentic Japan-made product in their store!
Ok enough of all that rambling...this is Pocky's Almond crush, it's one of their all-time popular flavors, and comes in a deluxe box of 6 packets, each packet contains 4 Pocky sticks.

a enthusiastic foodie from Australia!

I love food, especially desserts & sweets, junk food and Japanese cuisine! But I'm a foodie who loves all kinds of good food in general ^_^
I like to review & critique about various food, sweets, snacks & drinks I have tasted/tried based on my OWN personal opinion & preferences. So you may not agree with some of my opinions & ratings.

Please take note that I am not a serious food "critic", reviewing & critiquing foods is merely a hobby I like to do in my free time ^_^

Although the 'Kit Kat' confection originates in England & is produced worldwide by Nestlé (and Hershey in the US only), most of the KK bars I review about are Japanese flavours from Nestlé Japan.
