Pocky towers celebrate National Pocky Day
Getting creative with just about anything seems to be the thing these days, and once the finished piece makes it onto Twitter, it's only a matter of time before others start doing the same thing. Currently in Japan, it's all about making the tallest Pocky towers you can.
November 11th in Japan was officially "Pocky and Pretz Day," a promotional day to celebrate two of Ezaki Glico's most popular snacks. Pretz is the savory version of Pocky, with flavors like Salad, Roast, Spicy Cod Roe, and Okonomiyaki, just to name a few.
To celebrate this special day, the Japanese Twitter world is seeing a mini-trend of Pocky Tower photos, where fans of the iconic snack carefully build complex towers out of the delicious sticks before they put them in their mouths. The most impressive part about all this is the patience of these artists, who have all managed to not start devouring the Pocky sticks mid-construction. Some took over 2 hours to build!
To me, a Pocky and Pretz lover, these towers are a sign of amazing will power more than anything else.
Happy Pocky and Pretz Day to all.
