PockyPalooza '06!

So as y'all know, this is aiming to be a rough week for everyone's favorite duck. As a reward for surviving, my friend The Librarian and I are going to have a special event on Friday night:


Now, 'round The Pond, you can only get Pocky at three places: a Japanese teppan/sushi house (great food, but a little pricy), a Wal-Mart, and a "World Market." But in all three cases, all you can get is the original chocolate Pocky and Strawberry Pocky.

But for this to be POCKYPALOOZA 2006, we had to have more than just those! So I fired up Robert's Anime Corner Store on the ol' computer and placed an order for some different types of the yummy snack!

Purple Sweet Mousse Pocky (amusingly called "Purple Sweet MOUSE" on the receipt)! Mont Blanc Decorer Pocky! Winter Special Pocky! Peach & Strawberry Decorer Pocky! White Chocolate Pocky! Custard Fondu Mousse Pocky! Choco Mousse Pocky! Even some Caplico Cone Sticks, just for the heck of it.


(edit: Forgot to mention just how great Robert's Anime Corner Store is! I placed the order late on Wednesday, and it shipped early on Friday. There was a delay in getting it here, but that was on UPS's end, not RACS'. When it arrived, it was VERY well packaged, no damage to any of the pockyboxes, nor to the other stuff I ordered. I've found a new place to get my anime fix from, that's for darn sure... and they do overseas orders, too!)

1 So, I read about Pocky on wikipedia, realize I'm pronouncing it wrong, and think about how it could easily be a staple of anime. Not being an anime-phile, I have to leave it to my imagination how Japanese school girls would enjoy the treat.

Or is this wrong?

2 Man, I love the Pocky! I have a source in London that I get it from ( a wonderful shop called Cybercandy). I've had the Mont Blanc Pocky before, so I know you are in for a treat there. As a Brit, Pocky is a perfect snack for tea dunking, indeed it almost seems designed for it.

That is all.

4 One great thing about Pixy Central Flash (the successor to New Pixy Central) is that there are four pocky sources within easy walk, and all have a good variety. And there's another three within two blocks of my offices.

Strawberry pocky forever!
