Pocky, a long, thin cookie dipped in a chocolate-like coating, has been going strong with simple flavors like Green Tea, Chocolate and Strawberry as long as I have known it. It is difficult to pick a favorite since all flavors are unique and good in their own way. Browsing the internet one day, I came across a quiz that claimed it could tell me which flavor of Pocky best represents me. I took the quiz, and not surprisingly the results came back “Chocolate.” While I certainly agree that Chocolate fits me, the results seemed too limiting. How could I ignore all the other flavors I have grown to love?
After much hesitation about my “Chocolate” label, I finally found the answer that freed me. In a small Japanese store in Manhattan I came across a box of Limited Edition Pocky Decorer in Chocolate and Strawberry. Two in one! I no longer had to decide. There were also boxes of Chocolate and Caramel, Chocolate and Banana, Mont Blanc Chocolate and more. With all these fun, new combinations, choosing chocolate no longer meant excluding the others. I’m now proud to say that Chocolate Pocky is the flavor that best represents me, as long as I can also throw in strawberry, caramel or banana on top.
