Culinary Grade and Ceremonial Grade, do those 2 grades of Matcha taste different? Yes! Absolutely different. By comparing the two grades of Matcha manufactured by the same company, Ceremonial Grade Matcha is sweeter than Culinary Grade Matcha. But I’m not sure if everyone loves Ceremonial Grade Matcha more than Culinary Grade Matcha. Especially, considering that Ceremonial Grade Matcha is far more expensive than Culinary Grade Matcha.

Glico “Pocky” Chocolate Biscuit Stick Review

Pocky is a classic popular snack in Japan since 1966. It’s a very thin biscuit stick covered with chocolate. There is a description on the box, that says “chocolate cream covered biscuit sticks”. Yeah, I say that’s basically right. The “cream” stays solid as long as you store it in cool temperature. The top end is bare, so it’s easy to pick up, hold and bite it. Its maker Glico has always released so many different versions of it. Of course other companies have copied this idea and today so many imitations exist, but THIS IS the original to the best of my knowledge. Table of Contents Pocky Trivia Why …
