ILLUSTRATOR Warren Espejo
With its crisp biscuit base and sweet and creamy coating, Pocky is one of those snacks that you can nosh on just about any time of day and any occassion-it's just decadent enough that it feels like a treat, without being overly indulgent or fatty. But in the name of all things fun and festive, you might want to consider trading your go-to Chocolate or Strawberry flavor of the snack for this whimsical version: Check out the Pocky Colourful, which you can order online!
The Pocky Colourful is a limited-edition Pocky variant that goes for a real celebratory look. Its box features colorful dots that pop out beautifully against its white background-take note, collectors! But the real treat lies inside, of course, and this Pocky variation features their signature biscuit sticks with a citrus-kissed cream that makes for subtly zesty bites, plus rainbow-hued nonpareils for an extra playful touch.
If you're looking to try this special Pocky flavor, you'll be happy to know that you can get your fix via Landers Superstore-go ahead and drop by your nearest branch if you're a member, or order online through their website where a batch of 10 36-gram boxes go for P449.75. Alternatively, you can order it by twos (P90) through Glico's official store on Shopee. Note that in both cases, the product name is spelled out as "Pocky Colorful."
Pocky is a brand of chocolate-coated biscuit sticks hailing from Japan. It's been around as early as the '60s, and remains an icon over at the Land of the Rising Sun to this day-so much so that they have a whole holiday dedicated to the subtly-sweet snack, held annually on November 11!
