Japanese Treats

I was so excited yesterday when I was walking through Wal-Mart with my mom and I happened to find Pocky!Pocky is like a biscuit stick that has a type of flavor coating on them. I personally like the strawberry kind but the others are just as good. I was kind of sad because my favorite bookstore is going out of business and it was the only place I saw Pocky being sold. I also like Hello Panda which would be my 2nd favorite Japanese treat. Hello panda are little round or panda head shaped biscuits that have the strawberry, chocolate, or vanilla filling. Again I like the strawberry the best. They also have an image of a panda playing a type of sport stamped on each biscuit. I used to be able to find it at Hy-Vee but now I stared seeing it at Target. There is one more treat that I have come across that is sold at Hy-Vee which is YanYan. YanYan is another biscuit stick that has weird sayings stamped on them. It will have an animal and a saying next to it for example, "Octopus Lucky Number 8." They usually don't make much sense. YanYan has either a chocolate or vanilla flavoring to dip your sticks in. I don't really like YanYan anymore but I have only had the chocolate kind so maybe I would like the vanilla better.-Lexus
