Pocky has just released one of the best new snacks coming from Japan. The Glico company has looked to expand their Pocky product line with the matcha flavor.
For those individuals that have had an experience with matcha in the past, this is a very faithful reproduction of that flavor. The Pocky possess a biscuit base meaning that there isa very robust crunch for each bite. This experience is made different through the enrobed matcha flavor which provides a creamier aspect to the aforementioned crunch. The size of a Pocky Matcha serving is 70 grams or one box; the biscuit sticks are much healthier when compared to other sweets that are on the market. One will be sated if they eat 5 to 10 pieces of the Pocky Matcha but the box itself contains about 20 to 30 pieces. The total fat of 1 box is about 13 grams or 22 percent of the recommended daily value while the saturated fat and 11 grams is a slight touch above half of an individual’s RDV.
The carbohydrates are about 50 grams which corresponds to around 16% of one’s daily value. The sheer amount of flavors that Glico / Pocky has released over the course of the last few years is substantial; completists as well as fans of Pocky should locate their own supply of the new flavor. Make sure and purchase a box of the Pocky Matcha for around three to four dollars and the product will be available at well-stocked sweeps stores and import houses throughout the beginning of 2015.
