Pocky - Caramel (Special limited edition)!

Posted by Linda on 18. 2011 1 comments 0 trackback
I ordered this @ NapaJapan a while back, it's a special VERY limited edition of caramel Pocky...this particular edition was available for only a very short time in Japan in 2010. Glico (the manufacturer of the famous Pocky snacks) had randomly placed original Hello Kitty charms inside 6000 packs of this special limited edition Caramel Pocky (one charm per pack) for FREE, so each buyer had a chance to win one of the 6000 charms that were hidden randomly inside these packs.
It's no secret that I love Pocky, and I really like Hello Kitty as well, so when I saw this limited edition pack @ NapaJapan, it was too good a chance to pass!

It was cloudy, raining heavily and windy today in Sydney, I initially planned on going to one of my weekly shopping trips to the city today...despite the depressing weather. But needless to say, I didn't spend much time wandering around the shops today. I left the house at exactly 12pm noon and it was only lightly drizzling outside at the time...but once I arrived at Central station, suddenly it rained cats and dogs! The continuous flow of rainwater was starting to overwhelm the roads, with big puddles of water building up around the areas with traffic lights...at one point I accidentally stepped right in the middle of a big puddle of water, my shoes and feet were all soaked as a result!
Many people nearby were clinging onto their umbrellas as they raced to the nearby buildings and complexes to take shelter from the heavy rain, or running to the train station to catch a train home. Upon witnessing the weather today, I finally decided to cut the trip short this time, even when I was armed with my umbrella, I didn't feel like going shopping in the rain. So I decided to head to one of my favorite Japanese restaurants in the city for lunch.



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.
