Pocky day


November 11 is written as 11 11, which looks like for sticks. Something else that looks like a stick is a Pocky stick covered in chocolate. By some stroke of marketing genius, this has become the "Pocky Day" (and not for instance Pretz Day or any of the other stick shaped snacks). This day you need to buy and eat Pocky, so I did.

    1. Ja, det är snarlikt. Men Pocky är ett specifikt märke man måste köpa, medan det väl i Sverige går bra med hembakade kanelbullar eller bullar köpta av vilket märke som helst :-) Lite som Alla Hjärtans Dag som i Japan innebär att man måste köpa helt bizarra mängder choklad om man är kvinna (medan män gör det på White Day, en månad senare).
