SA 007: Pocky & Oranges

Posted on 07. Aug, 2009 by djsteen in episodes

On a hot day in spring Derek and Rachel tried some products from Japan and the UK that have a history in most peoples’ lives.

Pocky is a chocolate covered bread stick made in Japan since 1966. In the years since its creation there have been dozens of new flavours created. Many of them only available in certain geographical locations. It’s very easy to eat a more than a dozen Pocky sticks in a single sitting.

Terry’s Chocolate Orange has decades more history; dating back to the 1920s. It was originally a ‘chocolate apple’, but the orange was introduced in the 1930s, and due to the apple’s declining popularity it was phased out in 1954. That said, there’s now many different flavours from Orange Mint to Orange Raspberry. Though, only the orange readily available around the world.
