Who doesn't love Pocky?

Pocky is pretty much every Asian kid's favorite pastime. Growing up, it was definitely the highlight of every weekend after Chinese School. It has been a while since I've last had some, but I thought it'd be fun to blog about it. It's kind of ridiculous how a cookie stick dipped in cream can cause such a sensation. Ironically, it hasn't gone out of style.

These are the Pocky flavors I've tried:
The chocolate-flavored Pocky is the original flavor. It wasn't necessarily my favorite flavor, but it was the only one I knew about.

The strawberry-flavored Pocky was the only other flavor there was. I alternated the flavors sometimes.

The flavor of this Pocky is dark chocolate. I'm not sure why they named it "Men's," but it sounds a little sexist. I like dark chocolate, but like the original chocolate one better.

This Pocky is cheesecake-flavored. I love cheesecake, and this tastes nothing like it. That being said, it's still pretty good.

I actually really like the milk-flavored Pocky. It tastes very "nourishing," even though I'm pretty sure it's not that good for you. It also tastes a lot like the cheesecake one.

These are the flavors I want to try:
I love blueberries because they are sweet and full of antioxidants. However, I bet the flavoring has been processed so much that there is no more nutritional value.

Mangos remind me of the summer, when the weather is warmer and brighter. Now, I'm a winter person, but I guess you always want what you don't have.

This is a flavor I think would be interesting to try. I'm not sure black sesame is everyone's taste, but I never get tired of it.

I remember orange used to be my favorite flavor of anything, even though orange-flavored food never really tastes like the real thing because there's no citric acid, which is key to genuine orange taste. Orange is just really a nostalgic flavor.

I love green tea everything. You can never really go wrong with this flavor because it is light and fresh.

These are the flavors I'd rather not try:
I like banana, but not banana-flavored things. They always make things end up tasting awkward.

I also like pineapple, but I have the same opinion as I do with banana.

I just never really liked melons like honeydew or cantaloupe. They always have this weird taste that makes me want to puke.
