Glico Pocky Strawberry

20151011-DSC08291

Glico Pocky Strawberry is a ‘core’ Pocky fla­vour (along with chocol­ate and almond crush) with the stand­ard Pocky bis­cuit stick enrobed in straw­berry cream.

This Strawberry Pocky smells and tastes just like the straw­berry ice cream from child­hood. The straw­berry cream is even the same baby pink. Unlike the oth­er fla­vours of Pocky I’ve pos­ted about, which have been pro­duced in Japan, this Strawberry Pocky was pro­duced in Thailand. A point of dif­fer­ence is in the cream enrob­ing the Pocky — it’s less smooth and shiny. While that may be because it melted before reso­lid­i­fy­ing in the pack­age, none of the oth­er Pocky pro­duced in Japan have melted, des­pite being stored in the same cool and dark loc­a­tion. Perhaps the recipe dif­fers for dif­fer­ent man­u­fac­tur­ers of Pocky? I’ll have to try the same Pocky pro­duced in Japan to con­firm. That aside, once the cream melts in your mouth, it’s con­sist­ency is smooth­er.

The box of Glico Pocky Strawberry Pocky con­tained 2 packs with ~30 pieces. It was pro­duced in Thailand and pur­chased in Hong Kong in 2015.
