Whip it


In the Japanese chocolate-coated biscuit stick market, you’re either pro-Pocky (the market leader) or, if you like going for the underdog, you’ll prefer Pocky’s biscuit stick competitor Fran. I’ve always been a Pocky girl but check out this packaging for Fran Whipps strawberry and cream — 2 pretty !! They’re called Fran Whipps coz the cream is apparently the texture and thickness of whipped cream.


Chocolate biscuit sticks covered in vanilla whipped cream, then strawberry white chocolate with strawberry bits inside. The strawberry flavour is so intense it’s like you’re munching on fresh strawberries…… in a whole field of strawberries. The whipped cream flavour is more subdued.

These are a bit exxy in Japanese supermarkets but they’re definitely worth it if you like strawberry-white-chocolate coated whipped cream coated-chocolate-stick thingies. And who doesn’t? The girls at 8 tokyo tried these in Chocolate flavour too. Yum.

    Ms K, lucky you! The chocolate one???? The heart dish is from Loft Japan. <3333

    Kobe, yeah Fran is definitely more indulgent than Pocky and feels like good value for money coz it's so yum! I wonder if the shop near Town Hall woolworths has the choc one… or maruya ?

    The product image on the packaging is unbelievably…phallic.
