I am Korean-American. This means that I grew up loving all things American whether it was fast food (this is not so good), the NBA, reality TV, and of course, snacks. But then you have to access your Korean side and end up having a penchant for snacks that may be deemed “weird” or “gross” by others. WHATEVER.
B-B-BIG BARS (This name is odd) These are basically amazing sweet red bean ice bars. Asian desserts usually consist of lots of sweet red bean biscuits, ice creams, and cakes. I grew up eating these and every time my non-Asian friends would come over, they’d be like, “Ew..gross..bean ice cream!”
But then, they’d have a taste and get hooked. If you like mochi, you’ll love these bars.
CHOCO_PIES- Eeek…these are really sweet chocolate cream pies. Moon pies. Really good with lots o’sugar. Moderation is key here and if you have too many, just promise yourself that you’ll hit the gym tomorrow.
PEPERO- These are so addictive and yummy. They are like buttery stick-like crackers that are dipped in milk chocolate. You can find them at your local Korean grocery store or online.
SHRIMP-FLAVORED CHIPS. Yes, I’m completely aware that this sounds gross, but they are so good. Literally as gross as Salt n’vinegar chips…but you know, they’re lick-your-fingers delicious.
KANCHO-These are just crunchy chocolate filled crackers, but they have cute animal prints on them. So cute that you end up looking at them to figure out if you’ll ever see a panda in real life. Random, but really…don’t you know that about me now?
