I’ve always had an obsession with trying new pocky & kitkat flavours, especially those from Japan. Well, they mostly come from Japan anyway :) I picked up this winter limited edition pocky yesterday, and it’s rum & raisin! I can’t tell you which Chinese supermarket I purchased it from because I went to 4 different ones yesterday (lol). I was looking for a specific ingredient for my cakes which I have now learned that it’ll be discontinued for a while.
When I opened one of the packs, there was a whiff of rum aroma – the smell really is quite strong. I especially liked the specks of purple on the coating which are from the raisins. The rum’s presence is impossible to ignore, but it’s not overwhelming, in a good way.
