Note: Kyoho is a type of giant mountain grape in Japan.

Each Pocky stick corresponds to a different Star Wars character’s lightsaber. The Strawberry one belongs to Darth Vader, the Grape to Luke Skywalker and the Matcha to the Jedi Master Yoda. They are very cool and do look like Star Wars Lightsabers. You can have a lot of fun eating these.

How do they taste? Both the strawberry and grape have a strong smell and are pretty light on the flavour with the biscuit stick dominating. The flavour is quite artificial tasting with the grape one reminding us of the Grape Hi-Chew. Matcha Green Tea was by far and away the most delicious with a nice Matcha taste and even had Matcha inside the biscuit stick. I wouldn't say I’m a big fan of the Giant Pocky (excuse the pun) as the Pocky is too heavy on the biscuit and a lot lighter on the icing/topping compared to your regular Pocky.
