When I was first introduced to the Japanese taste treat known as Pocky, it was love at first bite. Long sticks of crunchy biscuits coated with chocolate: What's not to like? Turns out reader c0rkie enjoys Pocky as much as I do because she filled up 2 whole pages in the Yum Market with tons of different kinds! The official snack of anime, was originally sold exclusively in Japan in 1965. Since then, it has become extremely popular and is now sold all over the world - taking the name Mikado in Europe. I'm a fan of the classic milk chocolate but would love to try some of these other flavors... looks like I'll have to beg geeksugar to escort me to Japantown.
