Meiji Fran Chocolate from Japan
Fran chocolate-dipped cookie sticks are a little bit like Pocky's pudgy cousin. They're Meiji's beefed-up answer to Glico's original product. It's a similar milk biscuit cookie but infused with more butter flavor. Fran cookie sticks are dipped in chocolate like Pocky, but this chocolate is creamier, a chocolate mousse rather than milk chocolate. They're delicious and addictive. I don't think I prefer Fran to Pocky but they present a nice variation on the original.
