In case you're unfamiliar with Pocky, it's a Japanese snack made of biscuit sticks dipped in cream frosting. The treat is available in different frosting flavors, including strawberry, chocolate banana, cookies and cream, matcha green tea, and chocolate. There are also special seasonal and regional varieties, but chocolate is the OG classic flavor.
The sale was brought to light by Instagram user @costcodeals, who recently shared a video of the product at their local Costco. According to the caption, the product is available at Costco stores nationwide.
Between back-to-school season and Halloween, the timing couldn't be more perfect. The individual packs of Pocky are excellent for snacking on the go or switching up your trick-or-treating game. Besides, who says Halloween is only for candy? Plus, the actual Pocky is sealed in a bag within the box, making it easier to safely give out treats.
Currently, the 12-pack of Pocky Chocolate is not available on Costco's website. If you'd like to buy the product, call your local Costco warehouse to see if it's in stock.
