Today Sunghee, Yung-Sun, CJ and I took the monthly trip to Albany for Korean food. This time we went to the Exit 2 store instead of the Exit 6 one as Sunghee had some videos to return, and they were about 6 months late. Anyways, I like this store much better. Lots and lots of fun stuff.
First up we have our old friend Pocky. This is basically pretzel sticks dipped in chocolate. Yummy.

Chocolate Mousse Pocky. Same thing, but with chocolate mousse. I haven’t had this yet, but it looks good.

Men’s Pocky. Not too sure about this. At first I thought that “Men’s” was maybe the brand name, but on further inspection all three of these are made by Glico. Now I’m thinking that this is a Man’s Pocky. Rough, rugged and manly. Although eating a manly candy scares me a little.
I have never heard of Lychee before. It looks both good and cool, with it’s spiny red skin and pear-like soft inside. After some research this fruit originated in China, but is grown in the tropical areas of the US as well (Hawaii, Florida, California). I think I’m going to have some for dinner tomorrow.

Crunch Up! These just look fun. There’s three chocolate and two strawberry. The bag proclaims “Cereal & Choco Ensemble”. I had one of the strawberry and it sort of tasted like a Nestle Crunch gone horribly wrong. I’m going to wait a bit before trying the chocolate.
Gummy. Pictured is Apple, Muscat (white grape?), Grape, Pineapple. There was an Orange but I opened that already and had one. It was good, but I think Yung-Sun took the rest of the bag.

Banana Chips. I’ve made these before with my Ronco Food Dehydrator. These are better though. And there’s a lot! About a pound of the stuff is in that bag. None of that “Sold by weight, not volume. Contents may settle during shipment” crap here.

Green tea ice cream mix. I really like green tea ice cream, but have a hard time finding it. Now I can make my own!
