In case you thought I forgot about Pocky...



After my run-in with Chinese Pocky I have pretty successfully sworn off the stuff. And although my fascination with this sugary treat has diminished, it has not disappeared. So imagine my delight when I spotted these counterfeit Pocky in Malaysia. I was very pleased imagining how impressed you, my loyal readers, would be with my find.

As it turns out, these aren't fake Pocky, they are real Rocky. Glico markets Pocky as Rocky in Malaysia because in Malay the word puki, pronounced "pooki," means vagina (more vulgar than clinical). So now you know.
