that's fair enough, but some of us actually still enjoy it.

After chocolate covered pretzels were discontinued in my teens in the 90s this was the best I could get.


I didn't say that I didn't enjoy it. Just that it's (really) over rated.


I agree. It's not bad, but with the prices that places like expo charge for it, and with people buying SO many boxes, my mind boggles.

I do eat pocky from time to time, but everyone goes completely nuts over it, and I'm pretty sure that a large number of people just do it because it's Asian in origins and they perceive that it'll make them fit in better.

I more or less got over pocky after my first couple of expos.

I loved those. Especially the white chocolate ones.

I do love the stawberry Pocky. Discovered it at a Collectormaina ages ago before I knew it was a Japanese snack. I can get it much cheaper in the China Town here in Manchester so I buy it and then take it with me to expos (if I remember to).

I did try the Mikado. Its nice. I do hope they bring out other flavours though. My local shop on the croner sells it.

I miss chocolate covered pretzils T^T
I think I'm just addicted to pocky, mum mentioned I was acting like I was after I bugged her to take me to Sainsburies to get more Mikado pocky ._.; I ended up buying 5 boxes too, and ate one box in less than 15 minutes or so.

Pocky made me ill =________=

A friend at my last job went to a Chinese market and bought me LOADS... After finishing about 10 boxes (in 3 days) of them I was feeling a little ill... Only to find out that they were OVER A YEAR OUT OF DATE >_<


Dairy food poisening and projectile vomiting followed.

._. note to self: check date before buying from market.
But then again, eating too many will make you ill anyway (speak from experiance)

I've always liked Toppo more than Pocky. That way you don't suck all the flavour off!

Mikado pocky... *shivers*

Mikado and Pocky are just different brand names for the same product. Mikado aren't a type of Pocky! </pedant>

I have to admit this Pocky business befuddles me aswell, since growing up in France I used to eat Mikado all the time... When I saw Pocky in a manga I was like "Oh, Japanese have Mikado too!" ;D They also have more flavours, like the white chocolate and caramel ones that are yummy, I like them better than the weird strawberry or choco-banana Pocky >.> Do they sell them in england yet? I've only seen the plain chocolate ones~

Why is england always last to get good things? xD
