At that time, Chocotek was sold for 60 yen per box. The product was expected to gross 10 billion yen in the first two years but exceeded expectations threefold. After that, Chocotek was renamed Pocky because of the pockin sound that it made when eaten. In 1971, Glico invented a new flavor, Almond Pocky. Six years later, Strawberry Pocky was invented.
