Pepero Almond [Pocky Style Biscuits] (Import Shop)

I would like to start this write up by saying a big thank you to http://www.chocolatereviews.co.uk/ for very kindly sending me these biscuit sticks to try. I do love, Pocky, chocolate and nuts so it is safe to say that Chocolate Reviews chose wisely with this product.
The biscuit sticks may not be labelled as being official Pocky, but they certainly are that style of snack. They are coated in milk chocolate, and have almond pieces stuck to the outside too, one taster said that they thought they looked like sparklers. I think that they do look quite pretty, I really like it when the extra ingredient is stuck to the outside of these biscuits, rather than just a flavour within the coating.
I love the crunch that the extra nut gives these biscuits; it also makes them a little more substantial than a regular Pocky. The milk chocolate provides a good coating, and is sweet and milky, and the almond chunks are large enough to offer a noticeable nutty taste. The sticks are unsurprisingly rather moreish, and I am ashamed to say this pack did not last long!
These are well worth hunting out in your local import store, and thanks again to Chocolate Reviews.

Today I happened to know your blog.
Very fun and I am very interested in your UK snack.
Besides nice surprisingly , you tried this Pepero. They are very nostalgic snacks to me. I grew up eating this pepero while elementary scool kid.almost everyday after school.Now I am away from Korea and come to miss pepero after reading your review.
And you seem to be interested in pocky and other Japanese snack as well.
I have read about them with big smile, because I have living in Japan for 13 years. Thank you for your amusing post.
