Evening friends! Tonight I bring you another offering from my trip to the Asian market. I have had regular and strawberry Pocky before but I have never had coconut. I enjoy Pocky and coconut, so this has to be good.
I was surprised to see how few were in the box when I opened it. Usually there are quite a bit more inside but these look mighty fancy. I really liked that they put them in a clear package so you can see the deliciousness you’re getting into. Each stick of Pocky is coated in a later of chocolate, then a layer of coconut followed with a final layer of chocolate.
Normally when I eat Pocky I like to take teeny little bites quickly like some sort of rodent but the coconut Pocky just doesn’t lend itself to that. I was greeted with the familiar flavor of chocolate and a cookie biscuit but the coconut flavor was a bit underwhelming. I could taste it, but it was not as bold as I expected it to be.
Texture : 3/5 – The biscuit has a nice snap to it, the chocolate is smooth, and the coconut is flaky. I feel like the tiny shavings make for a kind of weird texture.
Smell : 3/5 – This flavor of Pocky mostly smells like chocolate.
Appearance : 4/5 – The coconut is very visible on the Pocky as well as the amount of chocolate. These look very tasty!
Taste : 3.5/5 – These are rather good but I was hoping for more coconut flavor. The flakes moreso got stuck in my teeth than anything. The biscuit is good as is the chocolate. I’d give these another go.
