Glico collaborated with local popular characters, limited quantity of  “Local character Pretz”  

Do you know what, “Local mascot” is?
Characteristic features of the mascots have strong relations with specific regions. They are used for PR events and help promoting the local towns.
I’d like to introduce to you 5 kinds of “Local character Pretz” which Glico collaborated with local popular characters.

These were launched from Glico on July 29th, 2014, but its sale already ended at the end of September, 2014. I hope those Pretz will be revived in the future.

Pretz lovers go ” It is easy to eat because of sticks”, “we can share them as it has many sticks in a package”.
It has a reputation as an outdoor snack.Those unique Pretz seem to become the unforgettable souvenirs.

Notes.    The prefectures having local popular mascots are lucky.
Their products sell themselves.
