Snacks are a perfect companion for when you are lazing around, watching movies on Netflix, or just relaxing. It’s like snacks elevate the whole experience! They make for a nice pastime when hanging out with your friends. They are tasty and addictive.

Korean snacks are no different. Koreans have made some of the tastiest snacks and they have been enjoyed by generations of Koreans all around the globe. There are so many choices, so many brightly coloured attractively packaged snacks for you to munch on. And most important, all are easily available in many countries.

Orion Choco Pie with Marshmallow Cream

This simple snack is made from chocolate, cake, and marshmallows – all the best things in life! Choco Pie is simply the Korean quintessential snack. It is available everywhere and you can have it at any time of the day.

Crab Chips

It is just the deliciousness of crab packed in very convenient packaging. This snack focusses on the divine goodness of crunchy chips with the flavour profile of a crab, which is both slightly sweet and salty. This is simply a bag full of flavours which you will definitely end up finishing in one sitting!

Korean Sweet Cakes (Yakgwa)

This traditional Korean cake is made from only three ingredients – honey, wheat flour, and sesame oil. In texture, they are light and flaky and can fulfil your craving if you are looking for something sweet. Taste-wise, they are something like a glazed donut.

Pumpkin Monaca

If you love the pumpkin flavour and everything that comes with wintery weather, then this snack is simply perfect for you. It has a rice-based biscuit on the outside and the inside is filled with thick and sweet pumpkin goodness. It is quite sweet so a single piece will be enough to give you a quick sugar fix and which is why they come in individual packaging.

Pepero White Cookie Sticks

It is like a Hershey’s cookie shaped in the form of a stick. This is one of the Korean favourite snacks where the Pepero, a cookie stick, is coated with white chocolate and cookie crumble. You will be a fan if you like Oreos or Cookies and Cream ice cream.

Azuki Bean Rice Ball Snacks

They are puffy rice balls with a sweet flavour like peanut butter. These rice cakes have flavour coated on the outside with a specific seasoning. They are basically a Cheetos alternative from Korea. Instead of salty and cheesy flavour like Cheetos, these have a slightly sweet flavour profile.

Shrimp Chips

It is also one of the popular snacks in Korea, like the Crab chips. They have no shrimp per se, but the simple ingredients – flour, starch, and oil –  are used with shrimp seasoning to make a delicious snack. The name is slightly a misnomer as they are shaped like French fries rather than chips.

Haitai Grape Candy

This sweet and sour flavoured grape candy tastes just like a Concord grape. It is simply delicious.

Banana Flavoured Snacks

These fluffy corn snacks are packed with the flavours of banana that simply melt in your mouth. They are healthier snacks with zero trans fat, so you won’t feel guilty about munching them.
