One of my favorite snack-drink combos


Besides haw flakes, my brother and I used to beg my mom for Ramune and Pocky sticks anytime we went to the Asian grocery store. The process of opening this drink always scared me as a kid for some reason. And, these Pocky sticks? They're dangerously addicting. I've had the chocolate and strawberry versions but I saw the matcha ones so I grabbed them. I don't eat them as much as I used to but they're as good as I remembered. The matcha ones were delicious and I ended up trying one of each together in one bite and it was a match made in heaven.


Alright, this drink can kind of be intimidating if you've never opened it before. You take off the wrapper first and then you're left with a plastic piece. You'll only need the middle part and you'll use it to push the marble that is inside the bottle into the soda. You can do this 2 ways. You can slam your hand down on top of it or use your force slowly to get it to pop in. This was always the scary part for me. Once the marble falls, you can drink the fizzy drink. I used to try and get the marble out and the only way was to break the glass. Don't do it by the way, it's not worth it. So have you tried these before?
