The ori­gin­al fla­vour of a snack food is rarely met with fan­fare. For one, it’s widely avail­able. To spice it up a tad, though, this is a com­par­is­on between the ori­gin­al and the giant ver­sions of the chocol­ate Pocky.

Glico Pocky Chocolate is a bis­cuit stick coated in chocol­ate. It’s a slightly dark­er chocol­ate than milk chocol­ate (although a sep­ar­ate ‘bit­ter­sweet’ Pocky exists). The sweet­ness and the dark­er chocol­ate goes well with the bis­cuit stick, which is the per­fect thick­ness for max­im­um crunch.

Glico Giant Pocky Chocolate is also a bis­cuit stick coated in chocol­ate, but 2x the width and height and 1.5x the length of the ori­gin­al.

As you the photo shows, it’s really quite big! The scal­ing up on the ori­gin­al Pocky, how­ever, also changes the taste and tex­ture of the chocol­ate Pocky. In the giant Pocky, the bis­cuit stick is more crumbly than crunchy and the dark­ness of the chocol­ate is lost amidst the extra bis­cuit as the thick­ness of the chocol­ate coat­ing remains the same as in the ori­gin­al.

While Giant Pocky is fun, the ori­gin­al Pocky holds its own. It’s clear why it remains the most pop­u­lar.

The pack of Glico Pocky Chocolate con­tained 9 packs each with 7 pieces. It was pro­duced in Japan and pur­chased in Hong Kong in 2015. The box of Glico Giant Pocky Chocolate con­tained 22 bags each with 1 piece. It was man­u­fac­tured in Japan and pur­chased in Osaka, Japan in 2014.
