Korean convenience store finds: Chocolate covered sticks with almond

A few weeks ago I bought some sticks covered in chocolate with crushed almonds.  (Is there a more proper name for this type of dessert?)

I liked the back of the box, since it looked like a vertical postcard.

When I opened the box I found a plastic wrapper, which really shouldn't have surprised me, but I rolled my eyes when I saw it.

The chocolate end of the sticks were all stuck together. This made for a mess when I'd try to break them apart; little pieces of chocolate went everywhere!  There weren't very many sticks either, definitely less than 10 in the pack.  That made it dangerously tempting to eat them all in one go, but don't worry, I resisted.

Their taste satisfied my chocolate craving, but it wasn't anything noteworthy.  Then again, I don't think we'll find noteworthy in a convenience store...

Rating: 2/5
Would I buy them again? Perhaps, but probably not.

  1. Sounds like Pocky (or a knock off version).

    1. Ah, yeah looks like it. I didn't know what the originals were called!
