Cute, fun treats for less than $1
Ah, Asian snacks.

The thing with Asian snacks is that they're not just snacks- they're cute! Also, cheap.



Check out Pepero Cookie Sticks from South Korea, available at every Asian supermarket worth its salt. Just navigate your way to the sweets and snacks section (for those unfamiliar with Asian languages, look at the pictures on the packaging!). Locate the shelf that displays the cookie stick snacks- there are a few brands. Unfortunately Pepero does not have an English label but you can check the price labels on the shelves to distinguish one brand from another. My box of Pepero cost $0.80.

Pepero is well known in South Korea for not only its tastiness but also the fact that you can play kissing games with them by having two people eat one stick from each end.



Lacking the necessary partner to partake in such games, I nibble my way a box on my own. Every stick is slim, made of a crunchy kind of cookie that to me is a bit of a hybrid of cookie and cracker. The flavour is savoury and offset nicely by the sweetness of the chocolate.

For those with company, feel free to play the Pepero kissing game or just share them around. There's something very novel about the unique shape of the cookie sticks that is quite unlike passing about a box of the usual cookies.
