This gorgeous box of Pocky Green Tea Chocolate Crush was sent to me by Oyatsu Cafe. The packaging is absolutely stunning with the emerald green colour and ribbon image on the front. The Pocky themselves are described as "high quality milk chocolate mixed with green tea cookies". It's such an intriguing flavour and one that sounds absolutely delicious.
One of the things I love about this Pocky is that inside the unique hexagonal box there are SIX individual bags, with four Pocky sticks in each. So you can open the box without worrying about the Pocky going stale. These Pocky are far too special to waste any!
Four Pocky might not seem like enough for one portion, but these Pocky are richer and more substantial than other sticks I've tried. They also have a fantastically knobbly appearance!
The thick outer chocolate is completely studded with lots of crunchy green tea cookie pieces. I haven't tried green tea cookies before but funnily enough I found a packet in a local Asian grocery shop, so I'll be reviewing those soon too.
The inner biscuit is crunchy and delicious and the perfect base for the thick chocolate coating. The milk chocolate is creamy and sweet but with a rich cocoa flavour. The green tea cookie pieces have a very subtle flavour, they taste like a delicious biscuit but without being excessively sweet. The generous amount of cookie pieces means these Pocky are extra crunchy and fabulous. I loved everything about these from the packaging to the flavours, and they're an absolute must for any Pocky fan. A resounding full marks from me!
