Candy Binge – Not so Sweet Anymore

Posted by dandycandy on June 5, 2006

I've gotten through most of the candy I purchased on Thursday, and now that I've devoure my ichigo and green tea pocky, I feel sad.  Yes. Chocolate Mousse and Regular, and even Caramel are good, but nothing beats the taste of green tea and ichigo.  They are my favorites. 

 Also, I found Kasugai gummy flavors I actually like!  Grape and Orange are my favorites.  They actually have the flavor they are intent on showcasing, and they are addictive.  Still don't know if I want to buy a full bag for 2.29, but there is a possibility some time or anymore.  Stay away from Muscadet and Strawberry, though.  What disappointments.

To those who have visited my blog and have commented, thank you so much.  It's nice to know that people manage to find this and read it.

A candy binge…

Posted by dandycandy on June 2, 2006

To all two of you who actually check on my blog, I am so sorry I haven't posted lately.  Damn sickness.

I went to Mitsuwa Marketplace today and went on a complete pocky/candy binge.  They didn't have Yogurt or Pine Creme pocky there, but I could live without those.  So here is listing of what I purchased there.

  • Green Tea Mousse Pocky (that sh*t was good!)
  • Chocolate Mousse Pocky (unopened)
  • Ichigo Pocky
  • Regular Pocky (and oldie but goodie)
  • Caramel  Pocky
  • Giant Ichigo Calpico (I'm going to enjoy that)
  • Kasugai Gummy Sampler (still not fond of the gummies)
  • Strawberry and Peach Calpico Water
  • hapi Baked Chocolate Mini Puff

I'm going to be on a high for days…can you blame me?  God bless Mitsuwa…I don't have to pay exorbitant shipping fees.

so much pocky

Posted by dandycandy on May 17, 2006

I went to Asian Food Grocer after work today and I swear, I'm going to make an order soon, especially with all that decorer pocky on sale.  Then again, I'm going to Mitsuwa this weekend, hopefully, so what do I care?  But still, that Melon pocky looks really good, and it's been reduced to $.89 a pack?  Hello, that's sweet.

 Did you like the pocky haiku?  More will come, I assure you.  As well as all that other stuff I said I'd post about it.  Forgive me, I'm just starting out.  It'll be a bit more polished as time goes buy.

Pocky is Tropically Dreamy

Posted by dandycandy on May 17, 2006

Japanese candy maker Glico makes me wonder at times…

 I was on eBay last night, and I saw boxes of Pineapple and Coconut Pocky being sold.

Yep, complete with pictures of palm trees and fruits on the package.

Glico released Caramel and Yogurt pocky last year (I love caramel), and I won't even get into the special pocky, and now this?  Is pocky even meant to be tropical?  What is up with this.

 I'll be needing to go the Japanese marketplace in order to try it out, and give a full review. But darn, what's next?  Lychee? Soba? Ramen pocky?  Excuse me while I freak out.

Meanwhile, I haven't had a Kasugai Kiss in a while.  Want one more than I want one from my fiance. Geez.
