Pepero Day

From what I read about Korea, there is a snack company there that makes a wafer like edible stick that is dipped in chocolate. It is call Pepero and since the snack is a straight narrow cylinder like food it reminds people of the number one.

So some clever Pepero person came up with 11-11 (November 11th) is Pepero day and Koreans go out and buy this snack.  See image of it here:

I was at Wal-Mart on 11-11-2012 and could not find this snack but I did find one called Pocky in the Asian food section.  See image.
