Take control of Glico's mascot HUG HUG as he makes his way around an imaginary world, trying to spread happiness. You will need to learn different coding functions to help him navigate a range of levels so he can make his way to a child in need of a smile.

By arranging Pocky in different sequences you can learn three basic coding fundamentals:


1. "GLICODE" App
Download the "GLICODE" app from Google Play.

2. Snacks
All you need to play "GLICODE" is a regular packet of Chocolate Pocky.
As the levels progress they will become harder to test you on what you've learnt. Remember to save a few extra Pocky for the difficult levels - you'll need them!

3. Placemat
For the best results make sure the snacks are placed on a plain white background.
Use a white placemat, paper or plate to lay your snacks out on.

1. Line up your snacks.
Remember not to place them too close together.

2. Capture.
Use your phone’s camera to take a picture of your snack sequence from above.

3. Test your sequence.
Hit the play button to see your code executed as HUG HUG moves through the course.

4. Eat your delicious code.
If you pass the level you can eat your delicious code and get ready for the next challenge.

*Be mindful of hygiene - we recommend you wash your hands before playing with your snacks.
*Please make sure your white placemat is clean.
