Pumpkin Pocky

February 23rd, 2011 by Rosa

I found these Pumpkin Pocky at my the local Asian grocery store in Austin, Texas. I’m a sucker for all things pumpkin, so I just had to try these.

If you’re unfamiliar with Pocky, they’re thin biscuit sticks mostly covered with a layer of chocolate or other frosting-like coating. These Pumpkin Pocky were coated with orange frosting.

The biscuit had a crisp crunch and a light buttery toastiness but was otherwise rather bland. The orange coating had the muted taste of pure pumpkin with a creamy undertone and a very mild – so mild I maybe imagined it? – tinge of cinnamon.

I really enjoyed the understated tastiness of this treat and its mix of creamy and crunchy. But again, I’m a sucker for all things pumpkin! An OM.
