@ChocMission readers who love their Japanese Pocky will want to pay attention today as we have another Cadbury exclusive! Introducing the newest addition to the UK Mikado range - 'King Choco Praline'. Saying these are an entirely new product would be slightly misleading. As far as we can tell these have been available in wider Europe (Italy, Germany and France) and have been so successful that Cadbury (Mondelez Int to be exact!) have decided to role them out for the UK. Here @ChocMission we are big advocates of pretty much all biscuit stick snack products (See previous Pocky & Mikado reviews HERE) so it was with great excitement we got to try this new 'luxury' variety.
Overall these new Mikado King Choco Praline got a big thumbs up all round from the team. As one would expect the larger size was no problem for anyone whatsoever. They are slightly more satisfying than your normal sized Pocky/Mikado though they still have the same 'just one more' appeal that keeps you constantly reaching back in the box. The 'praline' flavour variation may not appeal to all and we did find it a little surprising to see they didn't lead the King Choco UK invasion with the normal plain chocolate variant. None of us here @ChocMisison are complaining though. We recommend these to any Pocky or Mikado fans - let us know what you make of them when you try them yourselves.
