Mmmm, custard pudding. A win! The two long ones are flavours of Tiramisu, also lovely, with my preferred non-choc coating. The boxed one is Jasmine Tea, and this is actually a little peculiar. The jasmine tea taste is actually VERY strong, and mixed with a chocolate coating, ends up leaving an aftertaste - a bit like drinking the dregs of a pot of jasmine tea that is a little overbrewed. Would have been better with a more subtle tea flavour, and a non-choc coating. Ah well, can't win 'em all (and the Green Tea tiramisu and Purin (pudding) ones make up for this by being MADE of win)
Seriously. He is convinced that I should submit to the world of the MMORPG. This is his latest attempt. He just appeared at my door and thrust this into my hands. I managed to resist the last attempt (FFXI)...but the spirit is weakening...

Some more from the vaults I had forgotten to put up for perusal!
Watermelon. Strange. As was pineapple. The mistake with the more tropical flavours is not replacing the 'chocolate' part of the kitkat with a 'fruit-flavoured-choco-like-substance', which works so well when they do (mmm green tea chocolike. melon chocolike. Etc)
Yuzu was actually quite nice, but in a very subtle way. It's a citrus fruit, so again the flavour would have been better without choc and a nice lemony coating (pay attention kitkat makers - I want a lemony kitkat asap please)
But yes, the caramel pudding (purin) one. THAT was nice, and certainly worked well with chocolate. So pudding flavour is the winner!
Going through all the old photos on my phone, I came across various nice little bits of stencil art, thought I might as well pop them up here. Can't remember where in London these might have been taken - except for the 'love of power' one, that's outside my flat :-)

This is the passage between international and domestic terminals at Chicago O'Hare Airport. While you stand on the moving walkway, the lights overhead organically change and patterns move through the tubes, the softly glowing lightbricks on the side walls reflecting these changes too. I seem to recall there was some ambient music as well, which seemed to have no structure, but changed along with the lights. It was all actually rather soothing.
(Maybe I imagined the music...)
since I put up any interesting snack piccies. So, to make up for it, a plethora of interesting Pocky (and one of it's many imitators). The traditional Japanese flavours ones - Black Sesame and Kinako - were very interesting. Tasty, sweet, but in a slightly savoury way. The melon one is lovely (but I'm a sucker for melon flavours anyway), caramel is always good, and choco-banana - you can't go wrong.
I have been neglecting my poor Pocky, but I found a stash while clearing out my cupboard, and they were still good! The power of preservatives :-)
