Haitai Calbee Honey Butter Chips

These fried potato chips achieve a satisfying combination of salty and sweet flavors by combining the flavors of acacia honey and French butter.

Lotte Pepero

Pepero is made out of milk chocolate-dipped, tiny biscuit sticks. Although the original Pepero flavor is milk chocolate, Lotte has also released Pepero in Almond, Strawberry, Peanut, Oreo, White Chocolate, and Tiramisu flavors. Pepero has its own holiday known as Pepero Day, which is celebrated on November 11th by giving these chocolate-dipped cookie sticks as a sign of love.

Binggrae Banana Milk

Binggrae Banana Milk, a subtly and delicately sweet delight that you can purchase in any Korean grocery or convenience store, is another popular Korean snack. This well-known snack, which is made out of milk, sugar, and banana juice and was first introduced in 1974 by Binggrae, is frequently depicted in Korean dramas.

Nongshim Shrimp Crackers

Nongshim's Shrimp Crackers are ridged like French fries and are crunchy with a salty flavor. The shrimp used to make these shrimp-flavored crackers were caught in the North Jeolla Province.
