Pocky Poll: What's your Favorite Flavor?

pocky_.jpgIt started in Japan with a simple biscuit stick coated in chocolate. More than forty years later, it can be found in Asian markets from the U.S. to Australia. It's Pocky and more addictive than potato chips. Japanese teenagers in the 1970's were the first to catch Pocky fever. After sweet success with chocolate, the Pocky factory went wild. Now it's available in enough flavors and colors to make your head spin. This snack food even has its very own holiday in Japan -- Pocky Day, celebrated November 11.

You probably already tasted chocolate, got sick of strawberry, and became enamoredpocky 4.jpg with almond. But did you know about grape Pocky, fortune-telling Pocky, sweet potato Pocky, mild and bitter Pocky, or Lychee Flake Pocky? Pocky makers even managed to create reverse Pocky, which (hence the name) has frosting inside the crispy cookie.

If you had to choose one, what flavor would be your favorite? We know it's a tough choice; you don't want to hurt the other Pockys' feelings. Those who can't pick just one might want to satisfy their Pocky palate with this snack bundle pack. To stock up on Pocky and other delicious treats, shop Asianfoodgrocer.com.

I really, really liked the Berry G Pocky, but I know that it was only a seasonal Pocky. So out of the ones listed, I like the Almond Crush Pocky best.

Pocky Decorer Torokeru Montblanc. Best hands down. Though I like any with intense flavours, the tahitian vanilla, coconut, royal milk tea, they are all great. Sad part is, I live so far south, I cannot order any of them in the summer, they melt into a solid block. I end up waiting till the end of fall to order more.

I pretty much like all kinds of Pocky. They're all great! Almond Crush is definitely my favorite, followed closely by the simple classic strawberry and white chocolate. But I love trying new flavors and look forward to seeing any unique or new ones added here.

i LOVE pocky! over a span of 3 or so years, i have tried EVERY single pocky, (including all regional, giant sizes.), except for kobe wine. my favorites are giant natsumikan pocky (which tastes like grapefruit & mandarin orange) and giant canadian maple pretz (so sweet & tasty). i wish ALL the regional items were available here and kit kats ;D that'd be awesome!!! ;3

I enjoy the Almond Crushed Pocky and the Strawberry Pocky. Sadly I've never eaten the Green Tea or Mousse Pocky. Oh would anybody know where I could buy Pepero? I'm thinking it may be seasonal because I can't find it anywhere. I know this blog is about Pocky, but I have no trouble finding a place that sales Pocky thanks to the Asian Food Grocer. :D

I've only tried the common favors and what AFG has to offer. Out of what I've tried only one has completely captured my taste buds: pumpkin flavor. That was probably a year or two ago. Thus far I haven't been successful in finding it once more. What a pity it. I miss that sweet velvety texture and taste.

I am looking for Strawberry Marble pocky do you know where I can find some?

My favorite by far has to be the mixed berry pocky, which, unfortunately, I haven't been able to get since I was in Japan almost two years ago. The page says it's been discontinued, which I think is a travesty.

...The different kinds of dessert pocky were pretty good, too, though.
