I love Pocky

I do! I really really love Pocky.

are long thin Japanese biscuits that are coated with chocolate or some yummy flavor. They are today's "amuse bouche" for people on-the-go. They aren't high in calories, they aren't expensive, and they keep you busy... and entertained.

I especially love Pocky in Second Life. Here's a corporation that gets it.

They set out a sim to celebrate Valentine's Day, promoting different flavors, and with some lovely interactive features, and then added some events, too.

I have no idea how much longer this sim is going to be there, but be warned. If you love Pocky, like I love Pocky, you will want to run out and get some immediately after visiting this sim (teleport directly from here).

I totally love Pocky and the sim is extremely cute! :) Just wish they had slightly more interactive pieces...but maybe they'll add those in time.

Oh, Pocky! Isn't it wonderful? My daughter went through an anime/manga phase in middle school, and the only place you could find it was in small Japanese grocery stores, of which there weren't many in our community.

I saw some the other day at World Market (which is unfortunately going out of business). I will have to go back and buy out their stock!!!!!

/me wonders how to import her Pocky into SL to eat.

I went to that place too. Afterwards, I went to the nearby sushi place, and ordered me a box of it. :-P

I tried to visit the sim today and it isn't there anymore. The images are beautiful, and I wish I could have seen it.

Yes, christen, I noticed yesterday that it has been wiped. Well, on the positive side, at least you won't have to run out and buy Pockys! :D It had that effect on its vistors, ya know.
