I’m not sure what nefarious deal Glico made with the great tentacled underlord that rests beneath the Japanese peninsula, but once more, they have all the best snack food. No, my minions, what you see is not a product of photoshop. There are real, edible, officially licensed Pocky lightsabers for sale, and because Lucasfilms likes to taunt us poor Americans, you can only get them in Japan (or on eBay if you’re willing to pay $5 a box plus shipping.)
In fact, Pocky lightsabers aren’t Glico’s only score.
I think the Japanese text alongside glossy gravy shots of what looks like high end American cat food only adds to the charm.
You can see even more examples of Lucasfilm’s love of Glico over on That’s Nerdalicious.
