Pocky: King Of The Snacks

Biscuit sticks partly-coated in choco-chemicals. Pocky is fucked-up, but that's not a reason to avoid it.

A typical box of Pocky contains 4 packets of Pocky, each containing 5 Pocky sticks. Share the choco sticks among your friends and enemies. Eat them under the cover of darkness, when the waxing moon shows your blood to be black, and the whispers in your ear fill your heart and mind with anticipation of something that is at once terrifying and exhilarating. Japanese snacks are strange. There's not much more that can be said.

I love pocky! My favorite flavor is green tea =) though I've had a hard time finding it outside of Japan, couldn't find that flavor in Taiwan!

Pockys are available in China Town in London from the Chinese supermarket. Interesting, whilst being a Japanese snack, they are made in China. From casiocool
