Pocky named “Best Sweet Snack” in the first Cosmopolitan Snack Awards in the US
Irvine, California (April 16, 2021) – Cosmopolitan, the globally well-known magazine, released their first-ever “Cosmo Snack Awards” in April 2021 to honor a variety of snacks for their contribution to consumers. Pocky Strawberry was awarded “Best Sweet Snack” in the General Excellence category.
According to Starr Bowenbank, Assistant News Editor for Cosmopolitan US, “This might be the most delicate food ever, but its intense strawberry flavor makes it one hundred percent worth dealing with. It’s also cute, and honestly, cute snacks > snacks.” Pocky has become one of the top Asian confectionary brands in the United States and achieved strong sales growths in the last several years thanks to distribution expansion nationwide among mainstream American retailers. Pocky has made big strides in increasing brand awareness by 116% and penetration by 62% in the last four years and continues to gain acceptance and popularity among more American consumers.
