"Pocky" is a kind of chocolate stick sweets produced by Glico in Osaka. It's called "Mikado" in Europe, by the way, because the original name "Pocky" means the male organ in their secret language there. Anyway, in Japan, "Pocky" is as popular as we can find at most domestic shops like supermarkets and convenience stores.

Basically, "Pocky" was designed as only a chocolate style of "Pretz" produced by Glico. In 1960, it was liberalized to import cacao beans to Japan, and a lot of new kinds of chocolate sweets got to be produced. "Pocky" is one of them. They don't paint a part of the stick with chocolate, considering that you can easily have by empty hands.

I am terribly sorry to show my personal opinion, but I cannot help associating the King Game (Japanese "Truth Or Dare") with "Pocky." That's a recreation game that you draw straws to decide the king who gives an order and the slaves with numbers. Right, it's the game that we will not play if we have no other sex there. I wonder the younger still play the game.




You know, the gist of the recreation is nothing but reducing the distance among those in a group, needless to mention. Commands must gradually go to sexual ones, therefore. For example, if you become the king and order No. 2 and No. 4 to kiss each other before the atmosphere is not livened up, opposition statement will easily cause mainly upon the girls and it will be difficult to make it. "Gradually" is the most important thing.

In the "Gradually," "Pocky" will probably be active. As mentioned above, you are almost easy to get the chocolate sticks wherever you are. Anyway, in the recreation, somebody will command like "No. 1 and No. 2 eat a piece of Pocky from each end and moving toward the center." That's kind of sexual because it almost causes a kiss. Of course, depending on the situation, you might have to do it with the same sex one...

"Pocky" is not just a kind of chocolate snacks but also a bridge built over the deep river flowing between man and woman. That makes deeply emotive because I can guess I might be connected with someone else while eating a piece of "Pocky" even if I'm alone.
