So last night I Google it for the hell of it and find a site selling whole cases of it for $17. By "case" they mean "display case of 10 boxes", but that's still enough to make it a bargain, especially considering I haven't been able to find it anywhere (even Otakon didn't help with my Pocky needs). So guess what I am wasting money on when I get paid!
I think I should stockpile this stuff bunker-style. And line my home with the boxes.
