Strawberry Pocky comes in a variety of different packages. The most common package is a light pink box with a little baggie of the biscuit sticks inside, but for different occasions, Strawberry Pocky can be sold in dark pink boxes like the one seen here, light pink bags, white-pink boxes for Valentine's Day or White Day, and on occasion, in a Hello Kitty box, though the latter so far has only been sold in Japan and in Thailand.
The biscuit sticks themselves are more like a faintly-sweet cracker, but the strawberry coating is a great combination of sweetness and tart flavors. The coating reminds me of Strawberry cereals. It has a sharp Frankenberry taste that is very nostalgic, making it a perfect replacement for the Halloween cereal during the months it isn't on store shelves.
Dieters will be happy to know that it's low calorie, so you can eat a whole box of it and not destroy your diet. It's great for on the go snacking and fits snugly in the car.
Of course, if you're a big strawberry fanatic, Glico makes a GIANT version of this as well, with little bits of Strawberry stuck to the sticks for added flavor.
Strawberry Pocky is the perfect tag-along for Spring snacking, especially if you plan to be in Japan during the Sakura viewing. It's light pink color is as easy on the eyes as the taste is in the mouth.
