Favorite Japanese Treats!?
« on: December 01, 2009, 02:34:32 pm »
Hope I'm not Step'n on anyone's toes with a cool thread about
peoples favorite Japanese (or really... basically asian treats)
Candies/Cookies/Cakes!

So... Whats Your Favorite, Why and Where do you get it?

Mine is MILK POCKY!



I love it because it's just slightly odd, sometimes hard to find but very
sweet and tasty! I have to buy it online because, while I haven't checked
uwajimaya in awhile... I don't believe they carry it.

Your Turn!

My favorite over all? Geeze.
Well I am always in the mood for choco-Strawberry Reverse Pocky, but that was discontinued in early 2006.

Currently my favorite Pocky is the new variety of Cocoa Cookie Crush.

Mmm! Cookies! That looks awesome! And I'm sorry the strawberry
stuff was discontinued! Thats never fun!

I always wanted to know, does anyone else like the Rice snacks just for the rice paper? Or am I just wierd?

WHAAAAAAT????
Choco-strawberry reverse pocky? I need to see a pic of that. That is the flavor I'll need to mimick into a sword for my skit next year.

And why did they discontinue it?

NO!
STRAWBERRY IS BEST! It is dependable no matter the brand name or price!

Chocolate depends on the brand though, some of them are really weird tasting.

Tomatoes are my friends.  Tomato flavored things ... often not. 

Though, I can have a certain brand of strawberry ramune.  IIRC, it's colored with tomato extract.

Everyone thinks of killing me ...

Oh, that reminds me, Hakatamon makes charshu from scratch and w/o dyes ... I need to go and try it someday.  Though, it's hard for me to not order the udon.
