The current cross-band promotion between Glico and Kirin puts the spotlight on romance. By placing a bottle of the latter’s “teagurt” beverage next to a package of the former’s new Lemon-flavored Pocky, you can make two illustrated figures smooch.

Kirin’s tea-yogurt hybrid (¥140) tastes like a mix between Calpis and iced tea — a combination that suggests someone got a bit too adventurous at the drink lab. The lemon Pocky (¥178), meanwhile tastes vaguely like a lemon meringue pie, with a zesty citrus flavor. If you need to give your love to just one, opt for the Pocky.
