Pocky!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Uh-oh I think I'm addicted...............................................
And that Toppo stuff is wickawes too.......................................

Yeah. I usually have Pocky while I'm reading Manga or something.

For all of you who don't know about the goodness of Pocky, Pocky are little biscuit sticks dipped in a wide assortment of flavors. I've seen so many different kinds, like chocolate, coconut, banana, cherry, peach, apple, and strawberry.

yeah,.............................CHO SUGOI!!!!!!!!!

Oh! That sounds kinda familiar now. I think i've seen something like that when I was young. Well, it was similar to that. Well, this is what i'm talking about .

LOL That's not what some guys I know think. :p But I still think they're rather ummm..... pretty. :) Okay so they're a band. So why in the Pocky site they show them as The Pocky girls?

It's kinda like people endorsing things. Like for instance, Kobe Bryant endorses Sprite. Britany Spears endorses Pepsi. Mya endorses Coca Cola.

I've been eating Pocky since when I was a 7 or 8 years old in Hong Kong

for some reason,
when I heard some foreign people do not know what Pocky is,
I will think like 'what? you don't know what Pocky is? I have been eating them since when I was a kid!!'

hahaha...

Mmmm....
Pocky!😄
I love all the different types of Pocky!...
('cept Glico's green tea flavour ones!... interesting... but not too tasty!)...
I find actually that in general, Japanese chocolates & sweet bicuits (junk food in general) are *oishii!*
they all seem to be very kinda mildish & light...
unlike Irish sweets... which tend to be real teeth rotting heavy things!...
mmmm... Japanese junk food!
:)

Yeah, a while ago, I tried to edit my post, and change 12 to 15, but it wouldn't let me. Yup............I have a Japanese friend that is absolutely in love with Ai Kago. We all make fun of him for it, because Morning Musume is kinda equivelent to the female version of N'SYNC. Kinda funny, even though I have a thing for Rika Ishikawa..........

It sorta does look like the coca cola swirl, mebbe not. It might have to do with coca cola being popular, and advertising pocky with the stripe to get more customers...................

Hi Everyone,
I am New here, just doing some research
I'm working on an advertising project campaign for Pocky
chocolate, I'm wandering if anyone could provide me with anything about this snack, any information at all, why you like it, or why you hated it, it's history, I am obviously not a super snack fan.

Thanks
