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.

Pastry Chef Attempts to Make Gourmet Pocky | Gourmet Makes | Bon Appétit


  • Get yourself one of our brand new Gourmet Makes shirts here:

    • The marks are to show that the stick is pretzel.

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

    • 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.

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

    • 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 :^)

  • There used to be a whipped pocky that was my favorite and I've never been able to find it again. This was like... 10/15 years ago?

  • Why is she so beautiful. Her character, personality and everything. Keep doing you Claire ❤️

  • Claire, come back to St. Louis for the Japanese Festival and you can find lots of Pocky and Japanese snacks to try 😊

  • nobody will see this since it's so long since this video came out but given Pocky's Japanese origins I'd almost be tempted to see Brad attempt some kind of Savory Miso coating since miso is one of is big things. could taste amazing or could taste awful i dunno

  • Honey, you did so WELL!

  • The fact that the board she used to dry the Pocky had 'Don't Touch' written on it was the best. 31:42

  • That's so ..useless-

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

  • I'm eating it right now

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

  • I love gaby

  • Love it how Chris always boosts Claire !

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

  • wtf is a pocky?

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

  • How many ppl yawned shortly after Claire yawned?

  • Now these look doable!!!

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

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

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

  • 0:54 so KEWT !:D

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

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

    • Me, neither. Are they in the US?

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

  • Now make pejoy the inverse to Pocky

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

  • I really like that silver streak of hair Claire has.

    • She's a very attractive woman.

  • Gaby is especially adorable in this episode omg

  • 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!

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

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

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

  • Was the mocha tempered?

  • 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.

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

  • walking casually with my great wall of pocky

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

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

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

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

  • _Claire Saffitz: The Pocky Fairy_ Okay that was so cute

  • Homemade naan please

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

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

  • 20:15 fortify my chocolate with coke LOL

  • 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?

  • need her to make fruit roll ups next!!

  • 23:10 😂😂😂

  • not a bad person but i just want to punch Chris in the face every time

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

  • make gourmet olive garden breadsticks

  • how old is she? her face says 20 but her hair says 50

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