Pocky has been a part of Japanese life since 1966 and has been enjoyed by generations of families.
A common sentiment amongst Pocky fans is that it brings a sense of nostalgia, inviting fond memories of times spent with friends and family while sharing a box of Pocky.
Now, you too can enjoy this Japanese snack and create some Pocky memories of your own right here at home in the US.
In 1922, Japanese company Ezaki Glico Co., Ltd. launched Glico Caramel in a distinctive red box. 44 years later, Glico released a new product into their family of fine foods, a chocolate covered biscuit stick, Pocky. Inspired by the Japanese onomatopoeia for the snapping sound made while eating these chocolate covered sticks, they named their new product “Pocky”. Hence, Pocky was born.
In the beginning, these sticks were each hand dipped in chocolate, leaving one end of the stick, the handle, bare. This unique handle design served as a practical function during the hand dipping process and became a useful benefit while eating Pocky, allowing for multi-tasking without getting chocolate on your hands.
As demand increased, the manual dipping process was replaced with more efficient solutions, but the signature handle design remained. The packaging has also evolved over the years while hanging on to its compact, easy to carry feature, which makes it perfect as an on the go snack. And while the original chocolate flavor has been enjoyed by so many, new flavor varieties have been introduced including Pocky Strawberry and Pocky Cookies & Cream.
Over the years, Pocky has become a favorite amongst everyone. With plenty of sticks in each package, Pocky lends itself to sharing anytime, anywhere, and with anyone. Popular for parties, office breaks, study breaks, and great as a garnish for ice cream or as cake decorations, Pocky has been enjoyed by generation after generation since its inception in 1966 nearly half a century ago.
