One of my favorite snacks growing up was - like most other Asians - pocky. Since imports aren't cheap, it's become a special treat to enjoy the fancier varieties, like the matcha mousse flavor here:

These ones are often offered for a limited time only and are usually too pretty to eat. There are usually no more than four of these yummy batons in a bag, and each box only holds 3 to 4 bags - all the more reasons that these are savored rather than used for everyday consumption.

For that purpose, I highly recommend the strawberry yogurt flavour - slightly tangy and smell just like real strawberries - they make the perfect afternoon snack for a quick pick-me-up.

For the savory kind - Pretz is definitely the best. Pringles came out with a similar line of pretzel sticks in more westerner-friendly flavors like jalapeño but I still prefer plain old Pretz in the "salad" flavor.
