I didn't vote, because I don't know them. But if it contains enough chocolate is probably OK :D

Different varieties contain different amounts of chocolate; some contain none (e.g., the salty ones or the milk-flavoured ones). It seems that the "limited edition" ones might contain more :D

EDIT: My bad... the salty ones are Pretz... the Pocky are the ones with chocolate... :oops:

What's G Pocky?

I've had original Pocky and Men's Pocky, and they're pretty decent, but I prefer Koala No March. Plus, with Koala No March, you get overwhelming cuteness. ;)

Next time you see your Pocky dealer, look for G; it comes in regular and strawberry (I haven't tried the strawberry yet).

Hmmm... Oh, you mean Giant Pocky? I've always wondered about it... Insanely expensive, though. :?

I think the "G" stands for "Glico"...

Quote:
The first of these chocolate-dipped wheat sticks was launched by Glico Corporation in 1965. Glico was amazed at the success and popularity of Chocoteck - as they were first called - with sales reaching three times their original estimate. Chocoteck was soon renamed Pocky in recognition of the "pockin" sound they make when munched.

Nope; not Giant Pocky (bigger isn't really better in this case); it's the one that Slaugh has linked images to above this post.

Which is why, as I said, bigger isn't better in the case of Giant Pocky.

I'm sticking to my guns with G Pocky.

I think Pocky might be expensive everywhere. Look at the prices on glico.co.jp (they list only a few limited-edition ones), 1050 yen for the special Pocky's, almost CAD$15 :shock:

EDIT: Giant Pocky's there... still, 1500 yen...
