Pocky Poll: What's your Favorite Flavor?

It 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 enamored 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.
