Alongside Wang Wang crackers and gem biscuits, Pocky is something we grew up with and it’s always been one of my favourite treats along the snack aisle!
Not till recently, I’ve noticed interesting Pocky variants being offered in Singapore and one of those happen to be the Midi series. These feature a midi-sized Pocky biscuit stick that has a DOUBLE COATING of chocolate cream – for double the satisfaction.
They come in a box of 12 pieces separated into three individual packets, awesome for when you might not want to finish everything at one go (which for me is a real struggle). I got this from a friend who went to Japan, but they also retail in Cheers Singapore at $4.50.
Each Midi Pocky is a little under four inches long (far shorter than the usual ones) but the biscuit is also thicker for a greater crunch. I thought this went well with the extra generous coating that is smooth, rich and creamy.
Taste-wise, there were subtle hints of matcha but the flavour is just that not strong – a bit like a green tea latte that you might get from coffeehouse chains (i.e Starbucks), but less cloying and not overly sweet, which is always a good thing.
