pocky Pocky is a long seller Japanese snack.
It has been put on market since 1966 by Ezaki Glico company that is a Japanese food maker.
Pocky is a biscuit stick coated with chocolate.

Name "Pocky" is come from a onomatopoie word, "pokkin" that is a sound of breaking something narrow and long.

I do love pocky. They are just the right size and sweetness. I like to take them to parties, people always ask what they are and where did I get them. This brings me to the fact that my local Japanese store is closing. I am so sad. I will have to travel far to get bento items and Japanese grocery things. I cried when I found out.

Looks (and sounds) delicious!
I think it's interesting that you would know a word like onomotapaiea. Your English is good.

I am intrigued by the onomatopeic word! Italian language, which is old and complex, does't have a word for the sound of something narrow and long that breaks. Fascinating.
I liked the story on the link. I am going to pay a visit to the Gajin!

Japanese has so many onomatopiac words and they are fun to learn! My favorite, of course, is "sarasara"!
