    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.

      2. Shiemee Marino

        Please make meiji yan yan, and or hello panda or philippine's iced gem

      3. Sand Angels

        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.

      4. Katie H

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

      5. Erin W

        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 :^)

    2. Aoki Mika

      That's so ..useless-

    3. Aoki Mika

      My name (Mikado) is basicaly the german version of pocky.. Also the name of a stick game-

    4. Jacob Willson

    5. CalebHatesGames

      Claire went galaxy brain on this episode. I'm so impressed.

    6. Dj Vampire

    7. Harpriya Kaur

      Love it how Chris always boosts Claire !

    8. Aleyah Malone

      I put my hand upon your hip and I dip you dip we dip. She stressed me out the whole way through

    9. Denis Borcan

      wtf is a pocky?

    10. Asian Disappointment

      I like how they are chefs yet they still like normal foods

    11. Petra Z.

      How many ppl yawned shortly after Claire yawned?

    12. Connie Turner

      Now these look doable!!!

    13. Elijah Crenshaw

      Clair is capping on the St. louis thing, there has been pocky sticks as long as i can remember

    14. K777angel

      Claire I totally thought you dyed your hair grey. You inspired me.

      1. ForVDr

        I think she was born that way. Harmless genetic defect. I like it too, thinking of doing it.

    15. Jay (Zak) Poggenpohl

      0:54 so KEWT !:D

    16. imaghostya

      Just tried the cookies n cream ones lately and they don't disappoint!

    17. Michael Carroll

      I've never heard of pocky. I also live under a rock.

      1. ForVDr

        Me, neither. Are they in the US?

    18. Rachel

      whomst else was panicking because claire wasn't eating the best strawberry

    19. SeanLukeW

    20. naina vm

      *the next day* so it's been a week...

    21. Todd Johnson

      I really like that silver streak of hair Claire has.

      1. ForVDr

        She's a very attractive woman.

    22. ArtisticPixie

      Gaby is especially adorable in this episode omg

    23. Ana Lilia

      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!

    24. erad67

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

    25. gracie marz

      okay. is reading the ingredients actually her favorite part... or is she being sarcastic??

      1. Weiße Wölfin

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

    26. Snowflake Obsidian

      Was the mocha tempered?

    27. Bobbi Valade

      Poky must be a states thing, I have never seen them in Ontario Canada, I will have to ask my kids if they heard of them.

    28. Sara

      Note to self:don't watch gourmet makes when hungry

    29. Spoorky

      walking casually with my great wall of pocky

    30. Lauren Reggie

      i think that they should get brad to do an episode of gourmet makes lol

    31. Danny Aakjær

      I want pocky in Denmark. Never seen or tastet it heck I even try baking it

    32. EnglertRacing96

      so gabby is shorter than brad, even when he is sitting.....

    33. Bernardo Pérez

      Why Claire isn’t talking about the glycogen part of pocky?

    34. Phangirl Of Winterfell

      _Claire Saffitz: The Pocky Fairy_ Okay that was so cute

    35. Dennis TheGreat Corpas

    36. dave yesiam

      "i think i have an idea, im going to add some vodka" my first thought was "to Claire?"

    37. Smurves

      Try the almond! I just tried picky today for the first time.. nice light snack!

    38. Vincent Rauccio

      20:15 fortify my chocolate with coke LOL

    39. Autumn Sneezeweed

      I was one of the people who requested her to make Pocky, did my wish finally come true after the YT algorithim gave this to me 5 months after it came out?

    40. austin marie

    41. Atrielle Diones

      23:10 😂😂😂

    42. Jayco Mayo

    43. Fuelful TV

      I hate the drumming part . I can’t stand it. I can only last watching this for like 5 mins

    44. aesteticlyy sxunshine

      “Let’s add vodka.”

    45. WouterZtube

      Gaby is so cute

    46. watisoni waqa


    47. 1 stoner 3 cats

    48. ana suri

    52. Arianna Vitone

      Gabby was just ADORABLE in this episode. I mean, she's always adorable, but she was even more so in this episode.

    53. Amy McKenna

      I recommend Claire doing Veggie Straws next!

    54. Person Who likes cats


      1. Tamara Chapman

        Person Who likes cats I didn’t notice that until I saw this comment

    55. AllisonMarie r

      This feels like one I would totally try to make!

    56. callmefem

      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 😭😭😭

    57. Jaidalise

      I need a gabby in my life

    58. Luna Delaney

      *slams the like button watching you coat the pocky like a champ*

    59. Anny castro

      everytime im watching this youtube channel i get hungry

    60. Blueie Rocks

      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 😂😂

    61. christian jordan

      Dip 'n' Twist is the new Bend and Snap

    62. Rezcuz

      We've got Mikado in my country

    63. sachi wada

      I think they mean "adult pocky" (大人のポッキー) not "men Pocky". Isn't as sweet as the originals, they're suited for people with grown up taste buds! I love them

    64. Kelly Dolan

      22:00 Adam cameo!

    65. Lauren Beckerle

      Red box pocky for the win. Them NOT being sweet is IMHO one of the best things about them!

    66. Girthologist Gaming

      14:18 buscuit

    67. angelina

      i love the confidence that claire has

    68. Douglas Bordwell

      they are originally Japanese snacks

    69. Sofa Pop

      The chocolate almond ones are the far superior poky.

    70. lelalu101

      I forget that Gaby is queen of snacks
