There was a regional pastry shop I had years ago that allowed me to originally taste Taiyaki...dear god I was in heaven.. Who would've thought that bread with a sweet bean paste would taste so good ^_^

Sadly the place was arsoned and burned down and they never reopened.

There is the "Pastry House Hippo", a Japanese pastry shop in Novi MI. If that helps.

Heh... you live in the North. Not enough asian's go there. Guess you have to go buy it online.

I'm surprised Missori and Illinoise have it

Yea I realized that. I read the thing wrong. I thought he said he was from Missori

I'll tell you how good it tastes so it'll leave you salivating more without the satisfaction of ever eating it, hehe.

Yea bubble tea if you drink too much you can get sick of it.

Hmmmmmmmm red bean ice drink, I've only had it once, awsome stuff, the local chinese food resturants here don't serve very good stuff, it's more 'Canadianlized' to suit the tastes of the 'white' people I guess...I'd have to travel to Calgary, Vancouver or Toronto to get all the real good stuff

The closest thing we have to that drink + icecream is the red-bean icecream bars *drooooolllll*

damnit it's 11pm nothing is open and you got me craving.......grrrrrrrrrr.......

red bean paste is yummy, same thing with mung bean and other various sweet bean pastes.

If you have any chinese pastry places, you might beable to pick up red bean or mung bean paste cakes.

Not quite the same as Taiyaki...but I can assure you it's just as good. Although they're best fresh, unless if you have a bakery in your area that makes it, or family/friends who do make it, you'll have to settle for the massproduced kinds...

I should REALLY stop reading this thread, I was out shopping today, and didn't buy any pastries or snacks

Local store called Hastins sells pocky for 1.79 a box, but at the rate I eat it ( more like consume, dang addictive stuff... hehe ) I figured I better see if I can buy it cheaper somewhere else. Ive looked around and around on the web and havent found a place yet that sells pocky cheaper than a 1.79 a box. That store has to be making profit off of it, so there has to be somewhere out there cheaper. So where do you order your Pocky from? Thanks in advance!
...just get some pretzels....(the straight stick ones) and dip it in chocolate (or whatever flavor you like...) there CHEAP ASS pocky....

I do that! Well, I cheat and buy Flipz, those chocolate dipped pretzels. I love those. The salty and sweet combo is awesome.

After searching endlessly around town, I coudn't find any damn Japanese restaurants that sell taiyaki. I'm now convinced that it doesn't exists in the US. I think I'll try looking for that octopus ball thingy now instead. Ehm, what do you call it? Tokiyaki?

It's takoyaki and I think they're overrated. The first 3 bites were great, and then it was so-so and toward the end I just got sick of it.

I loved Pocky while growing up. I approve this thread.


Highest-rated comment: So, if I eat Pocky, I attract hot Asian women? (Yes, you can.)
[They are: Kou Shibasaki, Satomi Ishihara, Yukie Nakama and Aya Matsuura]



Yes, that's right: Pocky will save you from zombies!
Be sure it's part of your SOP survival kit.



I very much prefer the brand's older, more nostalgic tagline: OK Pocky.
It's much catchier than today's "Anata mo, watashi mo, Pocky".



The right way to eat Pocky, sans creepy, voyeur fisherman.

Gotta love dem Pocky's. Only had it when my Japanese Professor(s) feel particularly generous. Still, I like the flavor a lot, super light and creamy... on a stick. HOW CAN YOU GO WRONG!??!?
