Haul from Seoul: Food

19 Mar

To give you a break of all the cosmetics and skincare products I bought from Seoul, this post is about the food items I got there.

Super yummy! Tastes like brownie from the bakery. It is a pretty popular food “souvenir”. I haven’t tried the chocolate bars though.

These brownies from Lotte are really chocolatey, too. They are more inexpensive than the Market O ones.

I love my gochujang (red pepper paste)! It comes in different varieties.

These chocolatey goodies are so yummy, too. Wish I had gotten more.

Jeju Orange & Cacao Cholate and Jeju Cactus & Cacao Chocolate

I have only tried the orange one. Although I was not too keen on the combination, the chocolate and orange taste good together. I’m not sure about the cactus, though ๐Ÿ™‚

I know ginseng is good for the body butย it smells so much like… ginseng? It’s like woody, earthy and herb-y ๐Ÿ˜‰ I haven’t tried these lollies. If I remembered correctly, the white ginseng is good whenyou are inย a hot climate while the red ginseng is when you are in a cold place. I’m not really too sure as the “ginseng orientation” was conducted in Thai.

Of course, I had my Melona (melon ice cream popsicle)ย  and banana milk (both are not pictured) fix. I also went to a popular bakeshop chain, Paris Baguette. Although I did not try any cake from there, the cheese bread (not pictured) and the bagel tasted so good, too.

Aside from these, you can also buy seaweed, kimchi, instant noodles (which I forgot to get because I procastinated), and other biscuits and chocolates as souvenirs. Not to mention the Korean strawberries which are amazingly sweet. I regretted not buying the strawberries, too. I’m sure there are still more that I didn’t discover.

Have you tried any of these goodies? Which ones did you like?

Cheers ๐Ÿ™‚
