Not Pocky, but close
Hong Kong carries a brand of flavored breadsticks that I hadn't previously seen, Kabaya. It may or may not be a Japanese brand, but it certainly is a creative brand.
After that last round with four boxes of Pocky I had sworn off the stuff. (It appears that I lasted a month.) Anyway, the flavors I tried were apple pie and sweet potato. Although both good--and better than the highly disgusting mango Pockys--the sweet potato was the clear winner due to its abundance of cinnamon. Unlike Pocky, these ones weren't coated with anything, they were just carby delicious.
