My mother brings food whenever she comes over for a visit. Many times it's an oversized jar of kim chee that she made the day before. Accompanying the kim chee is usually some kind of snack for each member of the family. Dried fish, for example, is normally given to me, and sweet rice cakes are a treat for the girls.
I love the colors of rice cakes, especially the pale pink. Each color is a different flavor, and inside of each rice cake ball is sweet bean. Yum. I've never made my own, but I found this recipe today.
Here's the dried fish that my mom recently brought over. It's coated in honey and sesame seeds. If you look carefully, you can see the bones of the fish. So, there's definitely a crunchy factor to this snack. Not a fan favorite in the household, but I enjoy it.
And then there's the guilty pleasure treat- Choco Pies.
Choco Pies are essentially a Korean version of the moon pie. They look sweeter than they actually are, but maybe that's me trying to rationalize eating one.
The packaging is classic. Normally I steer clear of packaging like this in a market, but I am not as discriminating when it comes to international food products. A double standard, I know, but I can't help but be amused by phrasing like "It's Now."
