  • Have you tried the sumptuous chocolate-covered biscuit, Pocky? How about PRETZ, a similar biscuit stick dusted with a savory finish? These products are produced by a Japanese food company, “Ezaki Glico,” and are staple snacks in Japan that are well-loved all over the world!

    For Pocky and PRETZ fans, the good news is that, if you go to Glorietta’s Japantown, you’ll get to see one of the most photographed icons in the world, the Glico “Goal-In Mark” with the iconic Glico snack, Pocky!

    The Goal-In Mark

    Also known as Running Man, the Goal-In Mark was originally the first launched trademark of Glico. It is meant to symbolize Founder Riichi Ezaki’s spirit of promoting health through food. The second generation Goal-In Mark is said to have been inspired by a famous Filipino track and field athlete.

    In the photo zone of Glorietta’s Japantown, visitors can freely take a photo and pose inside a giant Pocky box or in front of the Glico Goal-In Mark.

    Celebrate Pocky day!

    Join the fun in celebrating Pocky day on November 11! Inspired by the resemblance of Pocky sticks with the number “1,” Pocky day was first celebrated back in 1999 in Japan.

    In 2016, the very first Global Pocky day campaign brought it to a total of 10 global locations. Find out your smile score and earn special photo filters by saying “Pocky!” and snapping a photo at their campaign website!
