Get a behind-the-scenes look at how Pocky is made in this short clip of the Glico factory

posted on February 8, 2016

Take an inside peek into the production process of Pocky, the beloved Japanese snack which has found its way into supermarkets around the world.

Pocky, one of Japan's most enduringly popular snacks, is manufactured by Ezaki Glico Co., Ltd. and has even made headway overseas. People of all ages enjoy munching on the chocolate-covered biscuit sticks and trying out the limited edition flavors which periodically grace the shelves of local convenience stores. November 11 has even unofficially been declared Pocky Day, a certain testament to the snack's overwhelming popularity!

However, unless they've worked in a food manufacturing factory before, few snack lovers can claim to have any insight into the Pocky production process. But now you can get an insider's look yourself! The following 2½-minute clip of Pocky being made at Glico's Osaka factory headquarters was released on Glico Japan's official YouTube channel last September and has recently been gaining steam across the web.
