Anime has always portrayed various well known foods, or snacks in particular. Onegai Teacher had Pocky. Kanon had taiyaki and strawberry sundaes. Shakugan no Shana had melon bread. And now there is Lucky Star, and this time it brings along choco cornets. Konata’s staple intake of choco cornets for lunch has definitely made my otaku burning passion to try one myself, but living out as far as I do from the city, all seemed to be in vain. But alas, today was a trip into the city, and heading into one of my regular places to buy sweet bread, I found it!
For my Sydney-sider readers, I found this at BreadTop, which is located on the Ground Floor of World Square. Although the conversation they had in episode one got me thinking of which do you see as the head. Although I couldn’t pick which one, I decided to buy two so I could try eating them from different ends. So far I’ve eaten one but I’m not going to describe what I think of it since I’m not a food critic. But still, for those who want one and be like Konata, now you know where to get one. Boy do I feel like a geek, lol.
UPDATE: I just ate the second one from the thin end and the chocolate just oozed out. Luckily I was eating in the kitchen so I didn’t make too much of a mess.
