Have you ever had it? I was reading some of my manga books that I bought and found out that the favourite food of one of the characters was strawberry pocky... so I looked for it in the store, and they actually had it! So of course I had to buy some to try lol... and it's really good :P I'm on my third box of it now lol... So, have you had it before? Do you like it? What's your favourite flavour?

I love Pocky, and Strawberry Pocky is possibly the best that there is. However, it does come in a bunch of different flavors. Some have ground nuts, some are mousse instead of regular chocolate. You can also buy Giant Pocky where the sticks are pretty huge compared to the little regular ones. Another one of my favorite flavors of Pocky is Men's Pocky. I think it is funny that they call it Men's Pocky. I guess since it is bitter/dark chocolate, that is supposed to appeal to men more. Oh well, I'm a woman and I still love it. If you don't mind my asking, what manga character likes Strawberry Pocky? You got me curious.

lol... and I've had a couple different kinds of the strawberry pocky so far. One was just like a thin layer of strawberry kind of "dried icing" if I can call it that lol... I suck at descriptions lol... and the other was like that, but it had chucks of strawberries in it, which made it taste more like strawberry jam. I like them both :P And the character that likes it is Shindou Shuichi from Gravitation. The anime / manga that started my whole obsession with anime / manga lol...

I've never heard of Gravitation. I'll have to check it out. Oh, and if you like Pocky, check out Pretz. Pretz is a kinda like a savory version of Pocky with stuff baked in. I just finished a box of the Pretz Salad that someone gave me as a gift. I was really surprised by how much I liked it. Plus, I love how they have little set portions in the bags so that I don't eat too many...well that it when I can keep myself to only wating one bag. ^_^

I'll definately have to keep my eye open for those in the store too. They sound really good :) Thanks for the suggestion.

I have never heard of it, what exactly is it? is it a grain mixture? a cereal, a bread, a cookie? or is it a spread, or a custard?

I haven't been able to try any but the original chocolate kind yet. But I really want to try the green tea kind.

Of course, I've had it. It is really good. When I was younger I would buy so much too, lol. My favourite flavour has always got to be strawberry. One time I had a banana kind, even though I didn't like it very much I ate the whole box, lol!

Oh my gosh, I thought I was the only one to ever have pocky. My little sis reads all that animae stuff and she started buying pocky and I love the strawberry. We buy it all the time but we have to get like 10 boxes and it's is only 1 dollar where i live so it is not expensive. So, what books do you have? Ever heard of Azu Manga Dioah? Or Angelic Layer? Those are good. We got the books and DvD. Better to watch them than read them to me.
