Mikado(Pocky) in Sainsburys!

Went shopping today, for shampoo, washing up liquid etc etc, boring stuff. And while in the biscuit aisle I spotted something… something I never expected to see… Pocky in a british supermarket…

Oh, the new Radio times too, the one featuring Tennant. Yuuummm. 3 yummy things.

Well… its not Pocky-Pocky. But rather Mikado. The european name for it. It really is Pocky though, liscensed by Glica and some company called Lu. Even tells you on the back of the box the origins of the name Mikado. Cos of a game, pick up sticks, also called Mikado, which I do remember playing when I was younger lol. The object was to pick up sticks without moving the other ones. Pockys called Pocky because of some other reason though, ne? Is it the noise it makes when you crunch it or something?

And some pictures of the first pretty-looking sky in days. It’s grey again today…bah.




Anyways, Doctor Who/Lost to watch. Work to do. Allsorts to be getting on with. Ja ne!

    I found some today in my local Premier (very small shop lol) and was pleasantly surprised!! Thought it was a bit rude not to mention Pocky on it and instead some game I didnt hear of until today, but hey, its Pocky, so I’m not fussed! :p
