Korean Snacks! Review No.1

Today, I'm going to review a few Korean snacks. I've been wanting to do this for a while now. As most of you know, Asia has many interesting (some strange) snacks. I have no idea what I am buying most of the time. I like to pick something up at the local convenience store (CU) that I have never tried before. 

Snack No.1:
Sajo Daelim Chargrilled Flavoured Hurangkeu Sausage.
 (소세지, 대림선 숯불구이맛후랑크2)

This is really common in Korea. A lot of the kids I teach eat this between classes. It's basically a vacuum packed sausage. There are many different flavours and shapes. This package was 70g and the full sausage is 185cals. There are ingredients on the back, but it's all in Korean. It's most likely full of preservatives, salt and pork. 

As you can see, this does NOT look appealing. I only bought it because I wanted to taste it. Bad mistake. It looks like a poo on a stick. It's so shiny too. There wasn't a strong smell when I opened it thankfully. 

I made the mistake of biting into it cold. You can heat them up in the microwave so it's not just a cold bit of meat on a stick. It's almost like eating a bratwurst. 
I bought this for around 1000won, so 50p back home. 
I wouldn't say no to buying it again. I'm sure in time this convenient snack will grow on me. But at this present moment, I don't like it. 

Snack No.2 


Okay, so this isn't a snack. It's a drink. I don't think it's made out of milk though. It's AMAZING. I am addicted to this stuff. It's not too sweet, and has a taste I cannot describe. I'd say almost like cream soda. 

The colour is creamy white and very frothy. You can buy these in litre bottles, 500ml bottles and cans. This can was 1000won, again 50p. The 500ml bottles are around 1800won. 

If I ever leave Korea, this will be the thing I will miss. I am sure the UK will have these somewhere but for quadruple the price. 

That's it for now. 
Stay tuned for more Korean snacks ^-^!
