Pocky In My Pocket

12:50 AM


Let's forget about calories for a moment...

Recently Pocky and Pretz have produced these cute boxes for their tasty sticks that I shouldn't eat but somehow I can't help myself.

The lid pops up and two cut-out arms/tentacles/wings pop out.

It's strange, but it allows the box to balance on the side of your bag.

Personally, I wasn't about to give Pocky free advertising unless I got free chocolate in return but they're fun to play with.

Let's meet the line-up:

Mr. Octopus, tastes horrible but looks so clueless that I can't help but love him.


Mr. Frog, bats for the other team but does it with such charm that the ladies fall for him anyway.


Mr. Panda - chillin'.


Mr. Penguin, constantly OD'd on sugar and always craving the next fix of chocolate.


Mr. Dog, a gentle soul who bears the brunt of the trauma whenever Mr. P goes through sugar withdrawal.


Mr. Octopus can't get over Beams's SS catalogue (pun intended).


Mr. Frog can't believe that Beams paired THAT top with THOSE shoes - ugh!

I love when stuff is unnecessarily cute - thank you Japan!

I'm in the middle of packing for Tokyo now.

I'm going to schedule some short posts for the next couple of days, if they don't appear blame Blogger.

Also, Japan is 1 nil up so I'm going to take this opportunity to put my plastic rubbish out on the wrong day.

Don't tell!

    Did you make up those personas for them?? That's so cute, and I can't totally imagine that!

    Haha, the friend I was chatting with today was similar to you, he'd only talk to me during the break haha! Atleast they won I guess XD
