Glico devised and launched Pocky in 1966 and these little stick snacks have gone on to take over the world. The word 'Pocky' is onomatopoeic, referring to the sound it makes when the stick is broken in two. Originally formed of a biscuit stick smothered in chocolate with a handy handle, nowadays Pocky comes in a veritable rainbow of varieties, including chunky strawberry, panda and even giant Pocky. Here at Japan Centre, you're bound to find the perfect Pocky for you.
