Claire Saffitz had never had Pocky before. And then one day in the Bon Appétit Test Kitchen her life changed forever. Her eyes are open and now she has ascended to Pocky level: Tsubu Tsubu (Strawberry Flakes), a level that it usually takes decades to reach. With her work in making a gourmet version of four flavors of Pocky - Chocolate, Matcha, Cookies & Cream and Strawberry Flakes - she is quickly climbing ever upwards in the Pocky Movement. Join Claire as she seeks Pocky Perfection.

Dont feel bad, Claire. I grew up and currently live in Oklahoma and Ive never heard of Pocky either. Even when I lived in Indiana for 11 years I never heard of Pocky. In fact, I never heard of Pocky before watching this video.

Does Claire have a blog. I need to know her skincare routine and where she buys her earrings.

next time maybe do the initial dip of biscuit through the pastry piping tip and then pull back out instead of having to clean it each time :^)

I so dislike the bad attitude: "right now is NOT a good time," as much as I enjoy everything else. So annoying when co-workers have an attitude!

The "o" sound is like the "o" in "low", not like the "a" in "paw".

It used to be, but Dan (the director) now makes her say it. She mentions that in an earlier episode, don't remember which.

I grew up in Belgium and we had Mikado! Basically the same thing with less exciting flavours. They just brought out a double chocolate salted caramel one though and I’m in LOVE with it. Can’t find it anywhere though 😭😭😭

It’s funny when they said the grill marks aren’t iconic because when I let the chocolate melt off I always feel for the marks because that’s how I know I’ve gotten all the topping off. It’s iconic for me 😂😂
