Celebrate Pocky day This November 11 in Japantown, Glorietta
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 the Japanese food company, “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
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 2nd generation Goal-In Mark, one of the many models of Glico, is said to have been inspired by a famous Filipino track and field athlete, although its current logo is the 7th generation model.
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.
