The last of my reviews for Candysan, an online Japanese store, are the Meiji Bon Macadamia Chocolat. They are part of the Fran Collection which seems to be Meiji's version of Pocky sticks - but just much BIGGER.
Inside the box there are three individual packets with a distinctive harlequin pattern, each containing three sticks.
The sticks are much bigger than standard Pocky, at least three times the width. The inner stick is more of a biscuit rather than a hard pretzel stick. It has a softer texture but is still nice and crunchy.
There is a generous layer of chocolate on the outside of the biscuit, that has a deliciously sweet and creamy flavour with a decent cocoa hit. The inner stick is lovely and chocolately too. These are basically like eating a delicious chocolate covered biscuit in a stick format! There isn't much flavour from the macadamia pieces, but the lovely chocolate itself more than makes up for that omission.
The Meiji Bon Macadamia Chocolat were very kindly sent to me by Candysan for review but all views are my own.
