EDO Pack - Almond Cacao biscuit sticks

Posted by Linda on 10. 2010 0 comments 0 trackback
This is a packet of Almond Cacao biscuit sticks from EDO Pack, which is a less-known Japanese confectionery manufacturer that has been expanding into other Asian countries in recent years:

it reminds me very much of the world famous Japanese biscuit stick snack Pocky, but does it taste better than Pocky? Well, it's a close competition...but my answer is NO. Not surprising, since how many competitors out there on the market right now that can beat the legendary 'Pocky' biscuit stick? The famous brand that sparked the whole biscuit stick revolution in Asia? Virtually NONE! Although some of these competitors are still worth the match nonetheless...and I think this is one of them.
With the word "CACAO" labeled in bold text, instantly you know they used dark chocolate to coat the biscuit sticks, also coating the sticks were some chopped almond pieces. The biscuit sticks were crunchy, the dark choc coating was pleasant, and the chopped almond pieces added some extra crunch. I just wish they had added more cocoa content to the dark choc coating, because I didn't think it was bitter enough for me (a avid dark choc lover here!)...and I thought the amount of almond pieces on each stick were less than I would've preferred...but overall it was good.

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.
