  • Claire Saffitz had never had Pocky before. And then one day in the Bon Appétit Test Kitchen her life changed forever. Her eyes are open and now she has ascended to Pocky level: Tsubu Tsubu (Strawberry Flakes), a level that it usually takes decades to reach. With her work in making a gourmet version of four flavors of Pocky - Chocolate, Matcha, Cookies & Cream and Strawberry Flakes - she is quickly climbing ever upwards in the Pocky Movement. Join Claire as she seeks Pocky Perfection.

                                                  I know this is late, but the reason Claire was experiencing 'better' Pocky and 'not-as-good' Pocky was because she was eating the Japanese ones and the Thai ones respectively.

                                                  I know because I live in Singapore, where both are available, but the standard Pocky in convenience stores is closer to the Thai version (cheaper, more mass-produced etc), whereas the Japanese Pocky in general is more expensive but uses better ingredients (and IMO tastes better).

                                                  Japanese Pocky has both the classic 'thinner' Pocky and the thicker premium flavours, while as far as I know the Thai/non-Japanese only has the classic.

                                                  The Japanese matcha one is also FAR better than any other 'foreign' matcha flavour.
