About a year ago Mr. Ohtani from the Japanese publisher Asukashinsha sent me a few bars of Meiji milk chocolate. They were very delicious.
When I went to Japan in May, 2011, I intended to bring back to the USA a number of those chocolate bars, however I somehow neglected to do so. I posted a video about it and a YouTuber: 7Dante7, sent me a web link where I could order the chocolate. Here is the link:
While in Japan when I did purchase a small amount of Meiji chocolate for immediate consumption, Shun suggested I also try a chocolate candy he called, “Chocolate on a Stick,” however on the box labeled: “Pocky.”
With this Pocky chocolate I kept wondering why someone would put chocolate candy on a stick. Then I thought well a lollipop is candy on a stick, and ice cream bar is ice cream on a stick, so why not chocolate on a stick.
I opened the package and tried to determine the best way to eat that chocolate on the stick. Do I suck it like a lollipop? Do I scrape it off with my teeth? Well I tried the scraping method when I discovered the chocolate was not on a wooden stick as I thought, it was on a “biscuit” stick. The “stick” broke off in my mouth. Had I read the box, it read in English: “Chocolate cream covered biscuit sticks.”
The treat was an absolute delight, the chocolate top grade, the biscuit stick top grade.
This video is the unboxing for that chocolate. I normally eat Dove dark chocolate however I enjoy the Meiji milk chocolate and now this Pocky chocolate on a stick.
Those in the USA, visit the below link and order a few boxes, you might enjoy it.
No I am not paid by Meiji, Pocky, or the website, just enjoy sharing good news and a good product.
