Miss travelling to Korea and having their delicious snacks? Here are four fun facts that we bet you didn't know about your favourite Korean snacks!
1. Pepero Day
Koreans celebrate Pepero Day on 11th of November. The locals will gift their friends and loved ones packages of Pepero, from your classic boxed Pepero to extravagant gift sets, and even amazing DIY-Pepero!
Apparently, the origins of Pepero Day date back to 1983, when two middle school girls shared a box of Pepero, hoping to become tall and thin on November 11 at 11:11 AM. This sparked a fad among other schoolgirls, quickly spreading across the country.
2. Tom's Farms Almond Nuts
Contrary to popular belief, not all snacks are unhealthy! Almonds are a great source of fiber and healthy monounsaturated fats that can help you feel fuller and prevent various heart diseases. Tom’s Farm Almond Nuts come in various flavours like the best selling Honey Butter and Wasabi.
There are over 100 flavours of Pringles chips! This includes limited edition and seasonal flavours like Korea’s Butter Caramel Pringles.
Plus, did you know that the Pringles character has a name? It’s “Julius Pringle” and he was designed by a guy named Louis R. Dixon.
O’sulloc has an entire museum dedicated to green tea in Jeju Island, South Korea! If you didn’t know, the ‘O’ in O’sulloc means to appreciate and enjoy. The O'sulloc Tea Museum is built in the shape of a green tea cup, and it has green tea fields and an observatory on the top of the main building where you can see the property from a birds eye view.
