Japanese and South Korean Snacks

You’re missing out one of the best food around Asia if you haven’t eaten a Japanese or Korean snack.

PRETZ (Japan)

Pretz from Glico. Pretz is a biscuit stick similar to Glico’s Pocky, but less sweeter than Pocky. The flavor posted above is Matcha and Vanilla.

POCKY (Japan)

Pocky is the twin of Pretz. hehe. This Glico Panda Pocky – Cookies and Cream is only a limited edition and it comes with a bigger box than the usual.

CHOCO PIE (S. Korea)

Of course I wouldn’t forget this one. It’s because Song Joong Ki endorses this Choco Pie. HAHA 😀 And my mom and I really loves this snack. Choco Pie is a snack cake consisting of two small round layers of cake with marshmallow filling with chocolate covering, similar to a pie.


I love Korean Ice Cream. It’s very refreshing and it’s not so sweet, unlike other ice cream. There’s also various flavors that I’m sure you don’t even know it existed. I really recommend eating Encho. It’s not just your typical pinipig ice cream. There’s something more than that.


I haven’t tried this one yet, but I hope to taste one in the future. It really looks cute and yummy. Mochi Ice Cream is a Japanese confection made from pounded sticky rice with ice cream filling. YUMM~~


It’s a “kid’s” drink, but I beg to disagree. Not only kids drink this cute juice! There are four flavors of this drink available: Apple, Strawberry, Tropical Fruit and Milk. I’ve only tasted the sagwa flavor (apple) twice and I can say that it surprisingly really tastes like apple.


Tonkatsu is also a snack in Japan. I’ve seen it in a lot of dramas and my stomach growls so much whenever I see them eating Tonkatsu. Tonkatsu is a deep fried breaded pork.


Teokbokki/Dukbokki is a very very famous snack among South Koreans especially during the cold weather. It is made from soft rice cake, fish cake and sweet red chili sauce.
