Pocky - Almond crush

Posted by Linda on 30. 2010 0 comments 0 trackback
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.

as soon as I opened the first packet, the fresh smell of sweet chocolate and toasted almonds filled my nostrils, I couldn't wait to dig into them! The sweet milk choc coating was so melt-in-your-mouth, with loads of "crushed" crunchy almond pieces embedded had a really lovely toasted flavor and aroma, and the biscuit sticks were crispy & crunchy as usual! There's really nothing more I can say, these were so irresistibly tasty that I really had a hard time stopping! I just could not stop myself from opening another packet from the box one after a another! My mum loved these too that we actually fought over it! Needless to say, the entire box was finished in next to no time!
As you all know by now that Pocky is my all-time favorite snack, and although I love a lot of Pocky flavors, but this one has officially become my new fave Pocky flavor yet!
I should've bought another box of this! This is another sure win Pocky flavor for the popular brand and for its famous manufacturer Glico!

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.
