An anime convention isn't complete without some Asian candy/sweets... and that's one thing I enjoy the most. I certainly enjoyed my share of them this time, along with some other sweet snacks.

Blueberry pocky. I've seen strawberry pocky before... chocolate.. vanilla... but not blueberry. I can't actually try this kind of pocky because I'm mailing it to my friend, but I am sure it's amazing.

Lychee pocky-- another intriguing flavor. Which I am giving to a different friend. I've really got to start getting my friends non-edible souvenirs so I'm not tempted to eat them myself.

Cappuccino pocky-- this one I did try. I think I actually bought about four boxes of this kind because it is amazing. It's a cocoa cookie covered in cappuccino cream.... alliterative and delicious!

Japanese Kit Kats! They have milk chocolate and white chocolate.

The white chocolate was pretty good. There were also cheese flavored Kit Kats but I did not get that kind because I thought it would probably be sort of weird.

I went walking for a little while and found this adorable little gourmet cupcake shop...

...and got a creamsicle cupcake, strawberry, fleur de sel (the caramelly one), chocolate with red velvet frosting, and classic red velvet. Each was very good. 

So, that was a lot of fun... can't wait to go back and try even more!

  2. Hi Jen!

    It's about an hour before lunch, so was thinking of something to eat, sooo drifted over to visit to get an idea about what to pick up, but, alas, you haven't updated your post. Looks like I'll have to venture back another time. Have a great week ahead. Safe travels.
