I LOVE DELICIOUS FUN UNIQUE TREATS!
Serious Eats is a great place to discover new things. Yesterday I saw these cool delicious looking Japanese Snacks on SE – they are called POCKY – and available locally!
Like monster movies, martial arts, and cartoon pornography, the Japanese are the only ones in the world who have managed to refine and re-imagine snack foods in a way that can only be described as art.
Pocky is a delicious, fun biscuit dessert from Japan. The name “Pocky” is derived from the sound that this crispy snack makes when eaten. At Asian Food Grocer, shop the many varieties of delectable Pocky treats from traditional favorites like Strawberry and Chocolate to more unusual flavors such as Chocolate coverd Coconut. Not only are Pocky sticks covered in a diverse assortment of frostings, but they also come in a broad array of styles and shapes.
Pocky is one of MANY COOL THINGS at Mitsuwa Marketplace …the largest Japanese Supermarket in the U. S. And we’re lucky to have one right here in Chicagoland! 100 E. Algonquin Road, Arlington Hts., IL 60005 TEL: (847) 956-6699
Visit and enjoy a taste of Japan.
