Giant Rainbow Pocky gets regular releases and remains a popular and iconic feature of the Pocky range. It is a Limited Edition, but it gets a regular run, so if you miss it you probably wont have to wait too long before it gets a new release.
In each box you get 7 sticks of Giant Pocky, with each one individually wrapped and about a foot long.
Each Pocky stick has a different colour topping, giving it the name ‘Rainbow Pocky’. The box art for Rainbow Pocky is also great, big bold graphics, a shot of each of the sticks, and the bottom left corner of the box sometimes features Tokyo’s Rainbow Bridge’ (not all limited Edition boxes have featured this).
The 7 flavors featured in the box are:
- Blueberry Pocky
- Grape Pocky
- Strawberry Pocky
- Orange Pocky
- Banana Pocky
- Green Tea Pocky
- Chocolate Pocky
These Giant Pocky sticks all have chocolate that is thicker than regular Pocky (as you would expect due to the large sticks), and the biscuit sticks are thick and strong. The only complaint would be that it would be nice to have slightly thicker chocolate, as the sticks are so big it can sometimes feel that you mostly have a mouthful of biscuit as opposed to the chocolate topping
The assortment of flavors in the box means that is is a novel way to sample some of the core Pocky flavor favorites like Chocolate and Green Tea, as well as sampling some of the more rare and hard to find flavors like Grape or Orange.
The Orange flavor gets a special mention from us, as we hadn’t had that before and it was sweet and fresh, more like a tangerine type flavor – it really worked well.
These Giant Pocky varieties are only released a few times a year, and they usually sell out pretty quickly. They make great gifts and have a real novelty factor.
Each stick measures about 20 cm long! Limited Edition!
