Oh I just remembered a yummy one I had recently: Frozen strawberries stuffed with vanilla ice-cream. Heavenly. :)

Great idea for a very popular Japanese biscuit but I don't get the "march" part. Is this because they were first released in 3月?
Try translating it as "March of the Koalas".
Sorry I left the ;) of my post. Given that Koalas live in trees and spend very little time on the ground the month of release theory seemed as valid as any. Furin has since pointed out that it refers to a marching tune.
Don't complain to me that people kick you when you're down. It's your own fault for lying there

Does anyone remember 雪イチゴ? I liked those, but I think it was a short-lived fad.

パン is AFAIK more popular than チョコ or candy in Japan. As far as the sweet varieties go:


are all big sellers at the convenience stores.

Thanks to this thread, I went out and bought some Pocky and コアラのマーチ. Both tasted good and I liked, but Pocky had that certain "once you pop you can't stop" which made me finish the darn package and still had me craving for more.

I sure hope the Koalas don't get it into their heads to start marching... those bastards are vicious when they aren't half asleep.
