Pocky Caramel

Like KitKats and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, there are a lot of different versions of Pocky, and I’ll probably never get through all of them. Luckily this one came in a smaller package.

This petite sized box is about one third the size of a regular box of Pocky, which is fine for me when I’m still experimenting. Pocky Caramel is the same bland cookie/pretzel stick this time dipped in a white-chocolate-style caramel-flavored coating.

What was oddest about the flavor of these was not that it tasted like caramel, and it did, but that it tasted rather like orange. Like a nice orange creme brulee. I have no idea how this was achieved, but I found it rather nice. Even though there was a strong powdered milk flavor to the whole thing it didn’t feel grainy or fake-tasting. They were rather sweet through and probably too sweet for my tastes as Pocky goes, but I’m starting to think that Pocky should make a combo pack that has little packets of different flavors in it so you can mix it up. Maybe eating a Chocolate Pocky and Caramel Pocky together would be tasty.

  1. I’ve never seen Caramel Pocky before, but it sounds pretty good. Have you tried Almond Crush yet? That’s also a great flavor. The funniest one by far is the “Men’s Pocky”—way to alienate half of the market!!!

    panasianbiz - I like going against the grain and eating stuff for the “other sex” ... I actually think the Men’s Pocky is the best.

  4. Hello,
    I found your site by searching See’s Candy.
    I live in Tokyo, but I didn’t know Pocky Caramel.
