For the people without Pocky in their lives (or lack thereof), I found a simple solution. Suncoast is a huge movie store chain that has a lot of goodies like anime, shirts, figurines, etc. But low and behold, on a rack next to the counter I found Japanese snacks and Pocky! 😄 Now you have a large store chain to go and look foward to.:)

I wonder if someone has the record for most pocky eaten within a 24 hour period.... If not, maybe it's time to try and set it then!

Hey KyoKyo, pacific mercantile downtown for the pocky brand stuff. Any of the asian markets around town (especially around alameda ave and federal blvd) will have at least some form of a dipped biscuit. Almond or coconut by the box!:)

For my 24th birthday, my roomate and best friend bought me a display box of banana pocky because I love the chocolate and banana ones. I still have like 26 out of the 36 in the pack.

The chocolate ones are good! Ok this confuses me...

What is man chocolate? There's a pocky flavour called "man chocolate" o_O
Most probably that's dark chocolade :mad: Never liked that one.
Actually, I only like white chocolade :D

I don't usually try the really exciting varieties of Pocky. just white and milk chocolate.

And I may have missed the explanation earlier in the postings, but what is Men's Pocky? How is it only for men? Or do I really want to know???

I always am fixing to try new Pocky, and there is some that are called 'Sweet cake'. I haven't tried them yet, but I want to. I'm not sure if this type has been released or not...

POCKY!!!!! :LOL: I first tried Pocky when my mom was shopping at Ft. Campbell, KY. They had some in the asian food section, so I'm like "this looks cool." I liked it! I've also seen them at Suncoast, and they got more flavors there!
