Is it me, or is Pepero like Pocky?

- According to the story, Pepero Day was started in 1994 by students at a girls' middle school in Busan, where they exchanged Pepero as gifts to wish one another to grow "as tall and slender as a Pepero."

Whoa! Good thing you gave Maya the Giant Pepero sticks!
Geez, imagine being as tall and slender as Pepero! No breasts or booty? Who wants that?

Oh, I just read that in Japan they have a Pocky Day. I think it's much smarter than trading candies as we do on Valentine's or Halloween.

You gotta love the crunchy.

Yes, they are similar. I'm not sure which came first the chick...er...I mean the Pepero or the Pocky. LOL

I got a cute little cell phone jangle of a Pepero character...I'm going to see if I can find more.

how cute!

Go figure that we weird Americans would rather dress up as monsters and rot our teeth out with candies while the Eastern countries prefer to give eachother gifts of flour sticks coated in yogurt or whatever it is in hopes that they would only become more beautiful (or what their culture believes is beautiful.)

Coated in chocolate. Not yogurt. CHOCOLATE!
