Or, I am such a mean mother I make my child write my blog for me
My 13 year old son wanted to have a go at doing a Museum of Snack Food post and since a kid needs a summer job and this is Men’s Pocky, I thought why not? So, without further ado, here is Nicholas’s review of Men’s Pocky.
Mr Pocky Review
You all know Pocky, but for those not in the know, Pocky is a type of desert/snack food from Japan. It’s pretzel stick dipped in milk chocolate, or strawberry flavored cream. But what you may NOT know is that there is, indeed, a Pocky for men.
That’s right. You may, like me, have thought at one point “Pocky is just not manly enough!”. Well now it is, with the advent of Mr. Pocky
What makes Mr. Pocky for men different than regular Pocky? It has been coated in dark chocolate instead of milk chocolate.
Its not a good idea to lick it, as then the chocolate will melt. It tasted pretty good. Like a crunchier dark chocolate, after you ate a pretzel stick. The aftertaste is…weird. Hard to describe, kinda like darker then dark chocolate. After a few minutes though,the aftertaste becomes a sort of bitter feeling on your tounge. You can also suck it like a lollipop, if you so choose. Also, if you put a small bit in your mouth, and keep the rest out of your mouth, it looks awesome. Not a good idea to eat it outside during a hot day though.
I give Mr. Pocky a final score of 8.4 out of 10. Tasty, but the bitterness that kicks in about a minute or two after you eat one is untasty. Also, regular Pocky tastes slightly better.
