Chuwolsan Mountain’s Yak Dasik (“yak” meaning “medicinal” in Korean) is Damyang’s traditional candy made of medicinal wild fruits and herbs.
Dasik is a pattern-pressed candy made of fruit/herb powder, rice powder, honey, and other ingredients. In order to get the fruit/herb powder, ingredients must go through a long process of drying, boiling, steaming, and stirring. It’s a time intensive process that produces a unique and delicious Korean snack.
Chuwolsan Mountain Dasik are typically flavored and decorated with jujubes, pine nuts, and so on. While eating the dasik, you will taste different flavors—sweet, sour, bitter, and nutty—and you’ll even smell the aromas of each of the different kinds as you chew! Chuwolsan Mountain’s Yak Dasik are naturally and brilliantly colored by wild fruits and herbs and have medicinal effects. Each of the different colors of Yak Dasik represent each season. More importantly, the candies preserve the values of nature and traditions of Korean ancestors.
