Happy Pocky (and Pepero) Day!

Go enjoy a Japanese treat today. You deserve it.

That’s right, today is Pocky Day—and for Koreans out there and others who otherwise prefer Lotte Pepero, its Pepero Day, too! (A little trivia: Pepero Day is just as much a marketing tool as Pocky Day is, but it also has a Valentine’s Day kinda feel in Korea and even in the U.S. among Korean-Americans.)

To celebrate our favorite chocolate/preztely snack, here’s a small gallery of anime characters eating Pocky. Enjoy, and let us know in the comments which Pocky flavor is your favorite! Mine is Matcha Green Tea! 😀
