• - [George] From calorie count to portion sizes,

• we wanted to find out all the differences

• between Pocky in Japan and the US.

• This is "Food Wars."

• In Japan, our Pocky comes in a 72-gram box

• which contains two packets and a nine-pack.

• (Pocky wrapper crinkles)

• - Our Pocky's come in basically three sizes.

• The one 1.14-ounce box, the 2.47-ounce box,

• and the 4.13-ounce boxy bag.

• But our strawberry-flavored box is smaller

• than this chocolate box.

• This is a 3.81-ounce box,

• which is 0.32 ounces smaller than this one.

• Largest box bag is this, the Cookies & Cream flavor,

• which is 4.57 ounces

• or 0.44 grams larger than the chocolate box.

• One theory, my theory,

• is that the Pocky boxes contain a specific number

• of Pocky sticks

• and each Pocky is a different weight

• based on the flavor coating.

• So we're gonna weigh each Pocky individually

• to see if this is true.

• All right, chocolate first.

• So seven of these are 13 grams. Can someone write that down?

• Strawberry, seven is 13 grams.

• Was that what the first one was? Okay.

• Cookies & Cream, seven of them are 18 grams.

• Well, the Cookies & Cream ones are definitely a lot heavier.

• A lot heavier.

• (Joe chomping)

• Mm!

• - So let's see how many Pocky are in a box.

• (George counting in Japanese)

• (audio chirping)

• 32, 33, 34.

• Thirty-four Pocky in total.

• So one packet has 17 Pocky

• and another one also has 17 Pocky.

• - Let's see how many Pocky's are in this box.

• (Pocky wrapper crinkles)

• (exhales) Oh, man.

• Is this normal?

• I think I can kind of like,

• do you wanna get a close-up on there before?

• So one, two, three, those are the broken ones.

• (audio chirping)

• 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36.

• You know how everyone was complaining about

• how I eat Kit-Kats in the Kit-Kat episode?

• (suspenseful music)

• (Joe chomps)

• (Joe chewing)

• Mm!

• (upbeat music)

• Here's all the Pocky's that are native to the US

• that are not in Japan.

• - And here are all the Pocky's native to Japan.

• Not a solid block, so that's good.

• (Pocky wrapper crinkles)

• (Joe chomping)

• Yeah, yeah, yeah.

• Mm!

• I like those.

• This looks like fun, Yuelei.

• Chocolate Banana, have you had these before?

• You have?

• No, mm-mm.

• That banana flavor hits right away.

• Oh, no.

• Matcha green tea.

• Any "Food Wars" heads watching know,

• Joe does not like matcha.

• Mm, smells like a freshly-cut lawn.

• (lawnmower rumbles)

• (Joe chomps)

• Yeah, nah.

• There's also a Crunchy Strawberry flavor you can get here

• in the US,

• but I was not able to get my hands on it

• by the time of filming this episode.

• So here's just regular strawberry.

• Uh-oh.

• Oh, another solid block.

• Yeah.

• (Joe chomps) (audience gasps)

• Mm, yeah, dude.

• Put me in jail for crimes against Pocky's.

• - George's energy.

• Bong, let's go!

• We have Pocky Luxury Milk Chocolate.

• (laughs) Is it Pocky?

• You look like corn dog.

• What happened to you?

• Hmm.

• It's got milk and fermented butter flavor.

• And we have another corn dog.

• It's a Almond Milk flavor.

• (George speaks in Japanese)

• Mm.

• It has strong almond milk flavor.

• I prefer this one, the milk chocolate,

• but both are so short.

• You should be longer.

• (whistle screeches)

• You too!

• We have this ultra-thin Pocky.

• Oh. (laughs)

• You are so thin this time.

• This one is short.

• This one is so thin.

• We have Tasty.

• Why is it Tasty?

• Oh, fermented butter is used for this stick.

• Ooh.

• (George chomps)

• It's got just a little bit of butter flavor.

• I still prefer this one, this corn dog.

• Almond Crush.

• It's a little different. Look at the packets.

• Yeah, obviously, it's got almonds.

• Okey-dokey, Pocky.

• (George speaks in Japanese)

• I love this.

• I love this.

• Mm.

• We've got Pocky Chocolate Coconut.

• Oh, this one is also this style of packets.

• Oh.

• It's pretty similar with this one, Almond Crush.

• (George chomps)

• Hmm?

• Yeah, obviously, it's got coconut flavor,

• and also, it's got a little bit of saltiness.

• It's not my taste.

• Strawberry chocolate Pocky.

• (George chomps)

• Oh.

• Ah.

• Right after you bite this, you get some sweetness.

• But after that, you get sourness.

• It smells so strong.

• I can smell it from here.

• Cocoa powder Pocky,

• And it says you can only get this in winter season.

• Oh yeah, look at this. It's got cocoa powder.

• (George speaks in Japanese)

• (George's lips smack)

• We've got the cutest Pocky ever.

• Cherry heart-shaped Pocky.

• Aha.

• Oh, look at this!

• Heart! It's in there.

• How cute.

• And this part, cherry chocolate is so awesome.

• You get strong cherry flavor.

• We've also got blueberry heart-shaped chocolate Pocky.

• (Pocky wrapper crinkles)

• Ooh, look at this.

• So blue.

• This color doesn't make me want to eat this, but let's try.

• (George speaks in Japanese)

• Ooh!

• Mm.

• So sour.

• But look at this heart-shaped Pocky.

• Not for me.

• This is what I've been waiting for, sakura matcha.

• So "sakura" means cherry blossom.

• Cherry blossom matcha taste.

• Ooh.

• Look at this!

• So it's got matcha chocolate

• and this stick is pink.

• (George chomps)

• Mm, this is so Japanese-y Pocky.

• Just sweet matcha.
