Creative Ways to Enjoy Pocky

Love Pocky? You’re not the only one!

Thanks to Glico, there is a whole forest of inventive Pocky biscuit sticks for you to enjoy. But, why leave all the creativity to Glico? Perfect for Valentine’s Day, here are 5 creative ways to enjoy Pocky with your partner.

1) Testing Your Pocky Palette

The endless varieties of Glico Pocky gives you and your valentine the perfect opportunity to put your palettes to the test! Taste different Pocky and see if you can figure out which flavour is which.

2) Play With Your Food. The “Pocky Game”

A great way to set sparks flying with your valentine is with the Pocky Game.

To play, you and your valentine should bite into each end of a Pocky stick. Then, munch your way through. The first to reach the middle wins!Pocky-Chocolates

3) Topping Off Desserts With Pocky

Especially around Valentine’s Day, adding a little finesse to your homemade desserts makes all the difference. It separates the Pocky of the world (Pockies? Pockys? Pocki?) from all the lesser known biscuit sticks.
