Yum Market Finds: Pocky, Pocky, Pocky!

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.

I've never tasted the stuff, but I admit that I'd like to just taste it or have one small bite... I'd like to know the taste for sure.

I love, Love, LOVE Pocky! I still remember getting it as a treat when I was little (like 4) I have to shout "POCKY!" when we pass it in the store. Since most of the stores (Safeway, Kroger) here sell Chocolate and Strawberry, I didn't realize that there were so many kinds until I went to Uwajimaya (in Seattle) to buy Sake and OH THE SELECTION! Every kind of Pocky! I haven't tried them all yet, but one day...I've now inducted my son into the wide world of Pocky. : o)

Ohhhh Pocky is sooo good, i adore it. I usually only see it in 4-5 different flavors though, so this is pretty exciting & illuminating!

the market in japantown (San Francisco) will have it but for all the flavors try a Ranch 99 store! Men's Pocky is my favorite even if i feel a little butch when i eat them!

Big, I had the exact opposite experience: everyone wanted some of my Pocky! XD (I think it was because I grew up in a heavily Asian community, and so everyone knew what they were.) I remember bringing them to school when I was like 4 or 5 (or 10, or 16) and pretending they were those long, fancy cigarette holders like Audrey Hepburn had in "Breakfast at Tiffany's." lol. I like Gentlemen's Pocky, despite the name [I am very much a girl], cos I am a dark chocolate fiend. And of course, the original Chocolate Pocky is good because it's a classic and you get the most Pocky for your money. hehe.

I have loved any and all kinds of Pocky since I was about 4 or 5. I used to bring them to school in my lunch and the kids would be like "WHAT IS THAT??? EWW THAT'S WEIRD!!!" But I just shrugged and thought, "your loss" because Pocky is the best! My favorite is the original plain "Pretz" flavor. Whenever we go to the Chinese/Asian supermarket, my mom ALWAYS buys like a whole carton of them (probably like 12 per carton) for us ... I want some now!!!

I love the classic Pocky you're showing! The green tea does not entice me at all, but some of the other varieties of chocolate do! I also love the Japanese rice paper candies!
