Weird But Cute Pocky Design

I saw this weird-looking packaging of Pocky in Paseo de Santa Rosa the other day, one that totally screams I'm from Japan!

Tell me, what do you make out of it? Me, at first I saw a swine then upon closer look I thought it looked like a butt-cheek. Yes I know it's supposed to be a peach-flavored Pocky based from the design but it doesn't look like one to me lol.

Is this a limited edition? Oh Japan, how do I love thee.

Edited: Apparently, this weird looking guy named Kakuremomojiri is a character in the Kobito-Zukan (literally translated as dwarf encyclopedia), a very popular picture  book in Japan illustrated by Toshitaka Nabata. Since he is a peach, he lives in a peach orchard.
