Every time we go to 99 Ranch Market nowadays, I always go to the snacks aisle to check if there’s any Green Tea Pocky. Lately though, they haven’t had any, it’s weird. But the last time we went, they had Men’s Pocky (“ALL NEW!” — I’ll say:p).
Once I started the box, it was gone in a flash. I think I could give them competitive eaters a run for their money in pocky consumption:p Yut had a chance to eat maybe one before they were GONE. Although he was playing DOTA on Warcraft and he doesn’t LURVE pocky, so it was his own doing. Yeah, it’s true:p
I just opened the men’s pocky, and I think it’s just dark chocolate. Dunno why that’s men’s, but whatevs. I did talk Yut into eating a few extra cos I mean, it’s Men’s pocky! The green tea is still the best. Although the yogurt was really good too:)
Oh speaking of them competitive eaters, we went out for dinner today and got raw oysters, and we ordered 18 for the 2 of us (Hama Hama, Kumamoto, and Malpeque, 6 each) and I was slurping away, then I said, “I wonder if I could eat as much as Sonya Thomas in oysters.” Only I just looked up her (world) record and it’s 46 DOZEN in 10 minutes, and I just don’t think I could do it. Or maybe I just can’t do it to myself. I looooove oysters, yum:)
Btw, Takeru Kobayashi beat Sonya Thomas in the finals of the US Open of Competitive Eating. They got through rounds of cheese fries, spaghetti bolognese, italian chopped salad, potato skins, and then finally an appetizer platter with chicken tenders, chips and dip, buffalo chicken burger, etcetc. Scary! Sonya was really strong ’til then end, when she just looked like she’d had about enough. I think they should’ve done the finals a day later:p
