Cookies & Cream Pocky by Glico Japan

20150712-DSC07073

Continuing with their bear theme, Cookies and Cream Pocky by Glico Japan is a chocol­ate bis­cuit stick enrobed in a cream mousse speckled with chocol­ate cook­ie flakes.

The unsweetened chocol­ate bis­cuit stick com­ple­ments the sweet­ness from the vanilla mousse while the chocol­ate cook­ie provides a sweet crunchy ele­ment. It tastes much like the Milk Cocoa Pocky, with the excep­tion that the mousse is sweeter and has a less milky taste.

The panda-theme is car­ried through­out the pack­aging and product itself. The front of the box shows a panda hold­ing a bunch of Pocky as if they were bam­boo, while the back of the box shows the rear of the panda com­plete with his fluffy tail and a tag to show he’s a panda, much like on plush toy. Even the plastic pack­aging for the Pocky is prin­ted with pan­das rolling about. And of course the Pocky bis­cuit stick itself is black/​brown and white just like the col­ours of a panda. There’s just no beat­ing the Japanese when it comes to atten­tion to detail in packaging!

The box of Cookies and Cream Pocky was 42g and con­tained one bag of ~20 pieces. It was man­u­fac­tured in Japan, and pur­chased in Osaka, Japan in 2014.
