pocky (2) It's 11.11.11 today...Pocky Day here.

Not a holiday or anything, but a chance to eat some delicious pocky.

pocky (3) Pocky are crackers that look like pretzles dipped in chocolate and decorated with nuts or pureed fruit.

In fact, there is another product called Pretz which are the undipped versions of Pocky and are more savory.

It's Friday, have a good weekend and happy Pocky Day!

That's so cute! The heart shape is just one pocky right, or that was the heart-shape pocky? It's my brother's birthday! Easy to remember... :-) Happy Weekend!

If I had known about this earlier I could've also picked up some Mikado sticks. I had no idea that they were the european version to pocky sticks until now!

K and S said...

you can still eat some even if you're a day late or so, Rowena :)

Take care.

How cute the heart-shaped pocky is. I didn't know there was a special day for pocky. ;-)

K and S said...

I think they had it last year too Deb :) not sure how long they've been "celebrating" this though.

Take care.

Kat, I remember eating Pocky while growing up in Hawaii and relishing the fact that mainlanders didn't know about it. Now that I live near Seattle, there are Pocky sticks to be found everywhere, in all different versions (even one packaged for men!). I still love them but have to share them with my kids now. In fact, a few years ago they and their school friends were crazy about Pocky sticks and would keep bringing them to school.

Guess the secret's out, huh?

K and S said...

The secret is definitely out Anon...I think you can even find them in countries outside of Japan.

Take care.
