Pocky

The other day, GoatSpawn insisted on having the Caramel Milk Pocky, and only the Caramel Milk Pocky, for her evening snack. Which was surprising since she hasn’t had it before. So I can only attribute her intense interest on the appeal of awesome Japanese snack packaging.

After discovering that the box contains a long thing cookie dipped in a sweet sugary coating, she’s an even bigger fan, which may put me on the road to trying as many of the different Pocky flavors as I can.

And since I don’t read Japanese and because I’m carrying just about all the parental guilt about my child’s diet that I can take, I’m just going to assume that the big “+Ca” on the box means that this Pocky is fortified with calcium.
