It depends on what flavor you get. I like Strawberry, of the chocolate almond flavor, like Mr. Wong here. For some reason, the chocolate on the chocolate and almond Pocky tastes different than the plain chocolate Pocky, which, I agree, tastes like anal scrapings.
Also, 4$+Shipping? My Wal-Mart and Kroger's sells them for half that price, if not, less.
