Strangely, the Walmart near me sells Pocky.

I like the strawberry Pocky; chocolate's a bit too sweet for me.

My local Walmarts sell Pocky and other snacks as well.

Yesterday I was in our local Costco, and they were selling chocolate Pocky in bulk size.

this thread reminds me of something that shown me japanese candy exists and it's quite different


as for myself, the UK doesn't get a massive amount of japanese stuff. I like mikado, look hard enough in any shop and you can find it. I'm not sure if the chocolate is actually japanese though, us brits love to put lots of sugar in candy

Banana and cookies n cream Pocky are my absolute favorite and those I find at a local grocery store. Thank god.
But recently I looove umaibo, my favorite is either cheese or tonkatsu flavor. I've only found them once at an Asian grocery store and then they disappeared :p so now I have to bulk order online
If you can get your hands on some I promise you'll love them.

London has some Japanese shops that may have them including the grocery shop in Stratford.

Only big cities are like that unfortunately. I live in the valleys you get barely anything here

Green tea Pocky!

I also buy matcha for making frozen yoghurt and lattes.
Dunno if it's junk, but I always have a ready supply of bonito/dashi for soups...
Plus, furikake. For lazy times.

Green tea Pocky is the best.
I've got some cooking grade matcha and ceremony grade matcha as well.


I live in an area that has really no access to Japanese goods, so I have to order online or import.
For candy, I ordered a subscription of Japan Crate, which sends some interesting things.
My favorite so far has been a matcha mochi snack.

For other things I usually just make it myself.

I purchased a bag of adzuki beans and made some anko, and I made some mochi for ohagi. I make melon pan, takoyaki, and onigiri often, as well.

You're basically a legend and I feel like we must embark upon a culinary adventure. Something is telling me (Perhaps the wine?) that we ought to drop everything and start our own cooking show! I also live in the arse end of nowhere, and have to get deliveries. Mochi are easy to make btw, although if you live alone like I do its definitely not worth doing unless you have guests!
Red bean paste is the absolute bomb when homemade. I also make onigiri, but have never attempted takoyaki.
So much appreciation for this right now.

Totally down with a cooking show, as long as it is basically a live action Shokugeki no Souma. Ever since that show came out I've been really focused on Japanese cooking.
I've been mastering some of the basic don dishes, gyudon, soboro, katsudon, oyakodon, sukiyaki, etc. etc.
Had a grocery store special order some eel, so I can make Unagi don next.

Been trying out a bunch of different tempura recipes lately, too. I'm convinced tempura makes everything better.

Puku Puku Tai; a pink fish shaped wafer filled with strawberry cream? there used to be an asian store in a nearby mall with all sorts of japanese snacks and anime stuff, but it went away a couple years ago.

overnight yakisoba pan,
must be 100% overnight.
the somehow dried up noodle with freshly make sauce on top in a bread taste damn good compared to a one that with freshly fried noodle
somehow the cold,left overnight noodle is the best in bread!


Oh man, i'm going to try to make that.

I like fruit flavoured mochi
