Taste of Japan #7 - Pocky? Pocky !
If you only try one Japanese snack, make sure its Pocky! Of course once you do try it, you'll be back for more. Crispy biscuit sticks coated in yummy chocolate. Need I say more? You count ask for a more perfect and simple snack. No visit to the international supermarket is complete without the Pocky - most of which gets eaten on the way home.
Laugh if you want, but nothing says valentine's day like heart shaped brownies and cookies. I tend to think they are better than flowers. At least you can eat them : )
I'm a firm believer that sprinkles should be applied conservatively. So you don't overwhelm the cupcakes flavor and you can observe and admire the sprinkle shapes.
