A Mouthful of Gundam Pocky

The best thing since men got their own Pocky (pronounced "po-key") comes Gundam Pocky. For the uninitiated, Pocky are Japanese stick-like biscuits usually dipped in chocolate. Starting December 11, Bandai and sweets maker Glico are targeting 30 year-old men by including 1/144 scale Gundam figurines with boxes of Chocolate, Extra Fine and Men's Pocky. Heh. Men's Pocky—even now that always makes me giggle. Brian Ashcraft

Are the tips explosive? If not, this fails.

I know several fangirls that would be ticked by the men's label.

Men's Pocky is a terrible name for the product. But its dark chocolate Pocky, and therefore superior to all other forms. If you look around, there might still be places that sell it in the Central Markets.

try Perth...small selection but they do have $3.80 for dark....

funny think is the thai strawberry stuff here is dearer than the Japanese stuff... i think they go by weight not quality here unlike Adelaide...

P= normal thai is $1.80 box (choc or strawberry) (A= $0.99 in central markets)
P= Japanese is $1.20 box (strawberry only)(A= $1.79+ in central markets)

man i am demolishing through the Japanese strawberry like there is no tommorrow... well in a few days there will be no tommorrow... only Adelaide and bah back to thai then....!

Think i'll have to amend the "Surviving Nuclear Holocast Plan" ...

1 Build sailing catamaran with lead shielding
2 Stock up armory
3 Stockpile "Pocky" ...
I must feel proud about the things I choose ...,

Be it Ero-games , doujinshi , or clothes ; its all the SAME !
