Going beyond the usual strawberry and chocolate flavors the company has now introduced a whiskey flavor.

Glico the manufacturer of the snack says its an ideal accompaniment with, you guessed it right whiskey. To be sold in limited numbers – 300,000 boxes to be precise a pack of six will be sold in a round shaped box resembling whisker packaging.
