If You Love All Things Hallyu, You’ll Love These 6 Yummy Korean Snacks!
1. Lotte Choco Pie
Around 12.1 billion Choco Pies have been sold around the world!
2. Jeju Island Crunch Choco (Citrus)
3. Jeju Island Crunch Choco (Blue Cactus)
Aaand, they have the exact same snack in yet another unique flavor- Blue Cactus!
After much research, it turns out that even though the packaging labels the fruit as blue, it is actually a purple cactus that is indigenous to Jeju called Baeknyeoncho.
The Baeknyeoncho is high in calcium, iron and dietary fiber and has been widely used by locals for folk remedies.
4. Ginseng Sweets
In Korea, Ginseng has become such a staple ingredient that it is considered a standard flavor and scent.
Normally, it would be rather difficult to associate ginseng with sweets. However, Korean Ginseng candy is sweet and has a tolerable and rather enjoyable taste!
5. Nong Shim Onion Ring Crackers
These are pretty enjoyable and a light snack if you’re not in the mood for a heavy meal!
6. Honey Butter Chips
Honey butter chips, also known as happiness butter potato chips is the latest trendy snack that became a crazy among South Koreans, creating a new trend called “Honey-Butter Craze”.
It became so popular that many convenient stores were sold out of the chips and on eBay, you had to pay $50 for a 60-gram bag of chips of which the original price was just $1.36.
Some stores even made “waiting lists” for customers while a “Honey Butter Chip-Hunting” app was created for consumers to check on the availability of the product at nearby convenient stores.
