I wanted to share something a bit off-the-beaten-path today, and while sorting through my archives yesterday I found the perfect thing; a series of Japanese Halloween Pocky boxes.
For those that don’t know, Pocky is a brand name confectionery product out of Japan that’s been around for decades. It’s a thin cracker-stick, typically covered in chocolate and other flavors.
As a collector, I don’t make an effort to collect Pocky, even though I think the packaging they come in is pretty cool. My reasoning is that first-and-foremost, they’re tough to track down, and ultimately when you can, the fact that they’re imported makes them cost-prohibitive. Even so, I have picked up a few fun ones over the years.
So let’s take a look at a release from six years ago that was called Pocky: Lovely Halloween. First up is the tray the individual boxes came in – check out the cut-out mask!:
And here are the three flavors of Halloween Pocky that originally came in that box:
That’s the trio of flavors that were originally included with the “Lovely Halloween” box. But I do have one more Halloween-related Pocky to share. This one is a from a few years earlier. Check it out:
And that’s everything I’ve got on the topic of Halloween Pocky. I hope you enjoyed the peek into this unusual confectionery treat. See you next time!
