Glico seem to keep bringing out new versions on this successful theme for Pocky. The latest is Chocolate Fromage. Chocolate on a cheese stick, great idea.
If its sweets you are looking for, then this week won’t disappoint. Put your main meal away and dig into a few of these filler upper snacks.
Crunky is a long time favorite of many. I am not sure this strawberry cheese tart version will beat out the original, but nice try. I think someone suggested on Twitter that I pick up a NY Cheese cake from @Famima_now. This is as close as I got to that.
Meiji have some interesting packaging for these Poporons. In grape and apple flavor they might fill a small space between meals.
Calbee are bringing out more new flavors in their Jagariko range. Here is a glimpse of some pizza flavored ones. Could be good.
The selection of nuts seems to be picking up. What types of nut varieties can you get in your part of the world? Cashews sprinkled with seaweed? Almonds mixed with octopus?
Lawson have launched their line of premium sweets under the name Uchi Cafe Sweets. This premium eclair looks particularly tempting. The photo doesn't really do it justice. It looks a lot better in real life.
As always, there are plenty of drinks to help you wash down the tasty treats.
Beer and Chu-hi are popular items at the conbini. This Chu-hi offering from Suntory is a limited sale for winter only. Get your cherry cola and lime ginger ale Chu-hi down you at -196 degrees celsius.
This might be worth trying if only for the novelty factor. Someone decided it would be a good idea to have fizzy Tea. I hope they didn't put milk in before they shook it up.
There have been quite a few soba-cha drinks coming on to the market. Here are 2 different types, one from Ito-en and one from Suntory. There are quite a few people with Soba allergies so they will have to stay clear of this one.
Ava round out the drink selection here with some cute promotion.
Evangelion Coffee from UCC
Merry Christmas at Lawson right now courtesy of Rilakkuma and friends.
Here is a nice money box to save up for some prezzies.
