"CHOCO IN PRETZEL", According to the box. (Yes, in all caps, in English.) Made by the Japanese company Glico, and distributed almost exclusively in Japan. I fell in love with Pocky at first, but once I discovered Kalpo, I never looked back. They are hollow sticks of pretzel filled with chocolate. The chocolate is smooth and creamy, never hard. the outer pretzel shell is vertically... I do not know how else to describe it... ahem... 'ribbed'. Manna from heaven.
