Description:

EDITED: - !!! Hi guys :) Have extended the deadline by one week - any complaints please pm me - cheers!

Yup we're international!

And we ♥ Pocky!

For this swap you will:

  • have 2 partners (for variety - tell me if you want this changed - majority vote wins ;) )

  • buy a box of your favourite Pocky and eat it!!! YUMMM! haha (a great way to show your partner which is your favourite! - so no decorating the outside ;) )

  • post below a list of 3 words you want your box to be filled with

  • pick one or all 3 words from your partners list below and try to include a variety of things to fill the pocky box with (so not all the same item) - try to stuff it full!!!

Examples:

"my 3 words are - red, circle and sweets"

THEN! - your partner will pick one of those words maybe 'red' then find lots of little RED things to fill your pocky box with! If your partner is adventurous they can pick 2 or all 3 of those words to incorporate into the items. :) And if you need more help you can always check out their profile.


New members MUST send me a message BEFORE joining.

All members must have a FULL PROFILE

Established members need GOOD feedback - I won't state a rating number and will decide on a case by case basis - PLENTY of time to get more ratings before this closes.


Please be prepared to be patient and to post overseas :)

Suggestions more than welcome :) - Like should I change it to only those with a 5 or keep it like it is?

I feel completely silly, but what is pocky??

sojourner 06/27/2007 #

My question also !

ArtfulAmy 06/27/2007 #

Oh good, maybe I don't feel so silly afterall! lol

RudeNun 06/27/2007 #

Same here!

Merozoite 06/27/2007 #

Pocky are (at my best description) stick-esq cookies that have been dipped in chocolate (or other flavors like strawberry, almond, or coconut). They're a Japanese thing, but can be found at most grocery stores. They're also very yummy. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pocky

I'd partake in this swap, but I'm trying to cut back ):

DreamHope 06/27/2007 #

Pocky: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pocky

The original is a little biscuit stick covered in chocolate. There are other flavours now too.

SparklyPinkStarSnowflake 06/27/2007 #

my picture would show you if it was up :( help? or to see the picture I wanted, go here...

It's pretty much a yummy snack! If it's not at your grocery store then it would be at any asian food store :)

I can't get any of the 'fancy' flavoured ones here - only the choc or strawberry one - no worries cos my fave is the choc one!

♥ sugareyes

ElizabethObviously 06/27/2007 #

my fave is sweet potato but it us SUPER hard to find

SparklyPinkStarSnowflake 06/27/2007 #

Hopefully you can setup a one on one swap in the forums :) I'm sure there'll be someone who can help you! Or maybe you can pick a second favourite? ;)

I've never even tasted sweet potato! so lucky you!

sojourner 06/27/2007 #

Thanks for all the information .

ArtfulAmy 06/27/2007 #

Yes, thanks for the education, I've learned something new, my fear is I'll like it...lol

happyichigo 06/28/2007 #

Now to answer happy_ichigo's question - we buy a box, eat the contents then we need to fill the now empty box with one or all of our partners words :)

If it's still not clear let me know and I'll explain it another way.

SarahElaine 07/30/2007 #

I want to try the green tea kind so bad! They don't sell it around here. My favourite is the coconut milk kind, but again, not something they sell around here. My only options now are chocolate or strawberry, but the strawberry is prettty nice.

Nanamint 07/31/2007 #

Yipee ! Thanks to Wikipedia I finally understood what Pocky is... and discovered we have it here in Europe, it's called Mikado and made by LU. But I've only seen choco ones.

So I'm very happy to join this pockymaniac swap ! :o) My three words will be : cherries, strawberries, bees.

phatelara 08/30/2007 #

Oh, I can't join this now since I am new and kind of committed to other swaps at GimmeYourStuff(gimmeyourstuff.blogspot.com). I am from Malaysia and here I've found choc and strawberry Pocky. There's also milk flavoured ones, smaller box with a pic of a cow on it. Very cute! Good luck on the swap, everyone!! ^o^

all4honey 09/ 5/2007 #

Great Idea Sis well done have fun....

malangelene 09/ 5/2007 #

i started buying mine online; i like matcha and men's which are almost impossible to find here. amazon has some and also asianfoodgrocer dot com. i'm fighting the swap-bot addiction so i won't be in this one but, man! what a good idea!

ollieotson 09/ 8/2007 #

i CANT wait for this to start! :P

libraryninja 09/17/2007 #

Oh no, I can't believe I missed this swap :( Hopefully there's another one soon!~

ollieotson 11/ 7/2007 #

uuff this was a hard one, but know everything is sent :D

SparklyPinkStarSnowflake 11/12/2007 #

Thanks to everyone who did their best and put together great pocky packs :)

Unfortunately a few have spoiled it by not sending yet - thanks for bringing this to my attention - I've just finished sending them all messages asking for them to communicate to me and their partners and that we're pretty understanding if something is up.

One of them in particular though has started getting lotsa ones - after the sign up date :( And I will bring it to the Admin's attention if she can't clean it up.

I don't think I want to host another one - though I received bloody awesome packs! :D

So anyone can feel free to start another one up if they wish :)

xoxo Kat

p.s. I'll keep you updated :)
