Major confectioner Ezaki Glico Co. said it has started marketing chocolate-and-strawberry cream-coated biscuit sticks in Vietnam together with Kinh Do Corp., a Ho Chi Minh City-based biscuit manufacturer.

Following Tuesday’s release of Pocky Chocolate Flavor and Pocky Strawberry Flavor biscuits in Ho Chi Minh City, the products will be sold in other Vietnamese cities, including Hanoi, Hai Phong, Nha Trang, Can Tho and Da Nang, it said.

The products will be manufactured at Thai Glico Co. in Bangkok and exported to the Vietnamese market.
