Pocky/Pejoy series: Mango Mousse Pocky

It’s time for another flavour in the Pocky/Pejoy series!

This time we have Mango Mousse Pocky. Whats the difference between mousse Pocky and normal Pocky? I’m not 100% sure, but it seems that the mousse sticks have a thicker cream coating around the biscuit stick.

Like other Pocky flavours, inside the packet were two 24g foil packages. When I opened one, there was a very strong mango candy fragrance.

Pocky / Pejoy series: Blueberry Cheese Double Pretz

After our time in Japan (I only have a couple more posts to go!), Alastair and I spent 5 days in Hong Kong and China. While in China, I noticed in the supermarket that there were lots and lots of Pocky and Pejoy flavours (there were probably tons in Japan too, but I wasn’t on the look out). You can buy Pocky in Australia, but not many flavours – normally just chocolate, strawberry, plus a couple of others.

Pocky and Pejoy are biscuit stick snacks made by the Japanese confectionery company, Glico. Pocky sticks are dipped in a variety of flavoured creams, while Pejoy contains the flavoured cream inside the stick. There is also Pretz, which are usually savoury with no cream coating.

Bro went to HK a couple of weeks after we returned, and I asked him to bring me back some Pocky and Pejoy. Lo and behold, he came back with a mountain of various flavours! I’ll do a post each time I try one of the flavours.

Blueberry Cheese Double Pretz

The first flavour I tried was neither Pocky nor Pejoy – not off to a brilliant start for a Pocky/Pejoy series! Anyway, the first box was the Blueberry Cheese Double Pretz. It’s “Double” Pretz rather than normal Pretz because there is a small line of flavour piped along the length of the biscuit stick, as well as the stick being flavoured with the blueberry cheese (I assume!).

The Pretz had a touch of sweetness, with a fake blueberry flavour. The blueberry was similar to a flavour that you would find in bubblegum, but quite mild.

I enjoyed them and found them very moreish. One thing that I really liked was how the sticks were only slightly sweet – there was a savouriness to the biscuit stick that made me want to keep eating them! I nearly polished off the whole box in one sitting. Thumbs up for this flavour!
