Glico's new product "Pocky Midi [Chubby Chocolat]" became a hot topic because it was short and "chubby". Following the release from Hokkaido on January 22nd in the Kanto Koshinetsu region, it will also be released from Chubu to the Kyushu / Okinawa region on March 19th.

According to Glico, the length of "Pocky Midi [Chubby Chocolat]" is two-thirds that of normal Pocky. The diameter is about two times thicker, which seems to create a texture different from that of conventional Pocky.

But does the texture really change just by changing the thickness and length? Doesn't this bother you?

… And if you're curious, try eating it. I changed from Chubu to Kyushu / Okinawa area and decided to try it immediately.


This is "Pocky Midi [Chubby Chocolat]".

■ I compared the appearance with the conventional Pocky!

The feature of this new Pocky is "short and thick". It's "chubby" as if you put your weight on it and crushed it.


From the left, it can be expressed as "chubby chocolate", normal "Pocky", "Pocky [extra-fine]", "before diet", "during diet", and "after diet".

■ Check the cross section of the chubby chocolate! -It was really two layers!
I cut it and looked at the cross section to see how thick it was. You can see that it is quite thick after all.


Plenty of chocolate. People who say "Pocky licks a little chocolate first, makes it into pretz, and then eats it" will be very satisfied with this.

However, this new Pocky is not just fat. The conventional Pocky chocolate was one layer, but the new thicker Pocky has been upgraded to two layers! You can enjoy two textures with one Pocky. In addition, the thicker chocolate makes the chocolate taste more intense. It seems that he is particular about chocolate, which is the key to Pocky! !!


■ I actually tried it

Because it is thicker than the conventional Pocky, the satisfaction per bottle is different. When eating in the office, you can eat without worrying about the surroundings because it is hard to make a "popping" sound like a conventional Pocky. It's a good Pocky to keep in your desk.


Look! So short!
Look! So short!


■ As an aside ...

Now, another important role of Pocky is "Pocky game". Pocky is not only a bridge to eat, but also a bridge to connect love. By the way, is the new product "Pocky Midi [Pocky Chocolat]" suitable for Pocky games?

First, verify with normal Pocky. Because of its length, there is a feeling of tension when approaching.


I will send it using a cute Sesame Street doll that is fresh as a human being

On the other hand, in the Pocky game using "Pocky Midi [Pottery Chocolat]", the game ends in an instant. I mean, it may no longer be a game. From the start, my face is very close.


Face close!
Face close!


When you want to fully enjoy the excitement of kissing, use the usual Pocky. If you don't want to be impatient, you may want to use "chubby chocolate".
