Who doesn’t love chocolate? But not many people know its origins or how it gets transformed from cacao beans into the rich, brown goodness that we all love? Glico, the company behind Pocky, is now inviting you to go on a virtual experience (VR) journey with Cacao Story 360.
Glico’s Cacao Story 360
Cacao Story 360 unveils the secrets of how cacao beans are grown and harvested and then transformation into chocolate.
The virtual reality content is set in Ecuador, a country in which Glico sources its cacao beans for use in its well-loved Pocky snacks.
Viewers get flown over a town and pay a visit to a cacao plantation. The VR content provides an up close look at the process from cultivation to harvesting to, finally, shipping out of the cacao beans. There is an interview with an Ecuadorean farmer which provide insights into the farming process and life on the farm.
With aerial footage that provides a bird’s eye view, there is so much to see and look at within Glico Cacao Story 360.
The content is broken up into nine chapters.
Video footage is accompanied by English language narration by two characters, the Doc and his assistant.

Glico’s Cacao 360 VR is a great way to learn about the origins of chocolate. After understanding the process it undergoes, you will be left with a new appreciation for chocolate and the work that goes into the “food of the gods”.
