    I loooove 새우깡 . I can get them in a local korean market here in my country.
    I also tried 뿌셔뿌셔 but ummmm.. not so yummie as 새우깡 is.

    I really like 새우깡, I also can buy it in France in asian store.
    I tried 뿌셔뿌셔 when I was in UK and I really like it, I didnt know it was for kid hahaha I like the different taste about it, well except the spicy one, too spicy.
    Since I love chocolate, I want to try 홈런볼. The 삼각김밥 looks like onigiri, is it the korean version ?
    Anyway, I wish korean snack were cheaper here, I like to try them 🙂

    Great timing!

    I went on a bus trip this past weekend and one of the other expats was wondering if the eggs were raw or cooked. I had just seen this video, so I was able to confirm that the eggs were 훈제란. Thanks for helping me impress someone!

    We used to eat ppushyeoppushyeo all the time in Canada! Mr. Noodles! You’re supposed to cook it, but kids usually dont and just eat it like that.
