American Pretz!?
« on: July 02, 2008, 12:57:43 am »
It's not called that, but it's the same thing.

Pringles Stix
Note the X-treme X!

I just don't know what to think of this.

I certainly don't want some crappy American company making a Pocky knock off and taking away the spotlight from my favorite snack.

I must enter deep thought and contemplate this situation.

They are advertised as spreadable.

I want a Pringles stick sandwich before I quit Pocky.

Aren't there already enough Asian knockoffs of Pocky and Pretz? Shouldn't an American company doing it be more of a "what took you so long?" situation?

You know, that's what I thought when they made Guitar Hero 9 years after Guitar Freaks was made.

I hate that, I haven't tried it before but I think it'll be like eating a stick...
It's not the same as Pocky because Pocky exceeds in every single food stick product that any american can make XD

Do you have a photo of it?  It doesn't have sweet stuff on it right?  It is just the stick?

 :D Sweet, I love Pretz.

Plus, Japan took a lot of stuff from us. Cell phones, reliable postal service, ect.

Yeah, I saw that! Steven Colbert was talking to Jon at the very end!
He was talking about the stuff they gave the Cookie Monster the previous night and in the basket of cookies was "Dark Chocolate Pocky"
