Snack Review: Pocky Choco Banana

This is another of the pocky flavors that I could get some different kind of pocky for a reasonable price on Tofu Cute, a webshop located in the UK. Pocky is a product from Glico and comes in many varieties. The most common is chocolate but today I will review the choco banana flavor.

I bought this package for 0.75 pounds on Tofu Cute. The package is a bit smaller than the chocolate one and only contains 25gr. The biscuit has a chocolate flavor and has a banana coating. When I opened the package it really smells like banana. The banana coating does taste strong but nice. But the chocolate biscuit I couldn't really taste at all. The snack isn't balanced because the banana overpowers the chocolate biscuit.
However, I do really like this flavor of pocky, and I would surely buy this again because I just love the way the coating tastes. The only downside is the size of the package. It is way too small!


  1. I have never seen this line of snacks in the US. Do you know if they are available only in the EU?

  2. To be honest, they are hard to come by in the EU as well. They are typically Japanese snacks. But I figure that big cities with Asian stores would carry them :)

  3. Thanks. I will check the next time I am near an Asian market.
