I don't know when this snack originally came out, but I remember it appearing in major supermarkets in 1999 from Japan. It was basically a thin cookie stick with one half being covered in frostings ranging from chocolate to grape. They came in sizes ranging from half an inch to 2 feet. They're pretty good.

I still buy these from time to time. I can only find them at Wal-Mart and the only flavors are chocolate and strawberry.

Me and my husband were grocery shopping at Wal Mart one day. We were in the Asian food section and he screams "POCKY!!!". I had absolutely no clue what he was talking about. He grabs a box of the chocolate and tells me I HAVE to try it. It was really good! They carry chocolate and strawberry at Wal Mart.

While it's true that wal-mart is one of the easiest places to find Pocky... any Asian supermarket should carry them (usually for half the price of wal-mart). Personally, my wife and I love the 'Almond Crush' Pocky... hands down the best, IMHO. There are actually a wide variety of flavors including Chocolate, Strawberry, Coconut, Orange Cream, and Almond Crush.

OH NO, I acutually remember getting these in the early 90's or possibly even the late 80's, right there next to the "botan rice candy", I have some in my car as a matter of fact :D

Pocky comes in a wide variety of flavors like Banana, Coconut, Coffee, Dessert, etc. but if you want these, you have to buy it at a specialty-Asian market. Most of these cost at least $3 a package and there are other brands that are similar to Pocky for a cheaper value.
