Winter-limited item.
And with a name like Melt-in-your-mouth Winter Pocky, who would not be won over?

Pretzel coated generously with chocolate,
and accented with cocoa powder.

I had the feeling this Pocky product was a little weightier than the others, and apparently my hunch was correct as the chocolate coating is actually thicker.
What a heavenly combination chocolate and cacao make!

To the traditional crispiness of Pocky pretzel sticks,
is added melt-in-your mouth delicious chocolate.
And to top it all off, the classy sweetness of cocoa powder.
I must aver being filled with a vague feeling of well-being after the last bite went down. ^ ^

By the way, just how much do you think it will snow this year anyway…?
