I was in my local grocery store and decided to take a closer look at the Asian/Japanese section, I happened to see Pocky and figured why not…and bought it. I see lots of characters casually chomping on pocky in a number of anime shows and manga volumes but I was never really tempted to buy it. I didn’t understand the appeal really, after all it was just a biscuit with a little chocolate on it. But I’ve seen too many pocky obsessed characters to not at least try it. Plus my Japanese Snacks section would be pretty poor indeed if it didn’t at least mention pocky, it’s such a classic Japanese candy (from how anime protrays it anyway).
