Asian snacks part 1
Most every Asian child will recognize the following two snack foods.
Yan yan is a Japanese snack with two compartments--one holds the biscuit/cracker sticks and the other contains the flavored frosting for dipping. While I grew up with plain old chocolate and strawberry, there are a whole slew of flavors now. Here are some we picked up while in Singapore including hazelnut, mango and chocolate/strawberry combo.
Pocky is another huge favorite from Japan. It's a thin biscuit stick coated with a fun flavor such as chocolate, strawberry or almond. There are a ton of variations and I was excited to find pumpkin, strawberry, choco banana and milk coffee.
I'm glad I finally got around to taking pictures of these so now I can break into them! Hope they taste as good as they look!
