Popular snacks While eating three meals a day is recommended, sometimes your travel itinerary is so full that stopping to eat can feel like a waste of time! In those situations, filling up on snacks is best to keep your energy going. Thankfully, the alleys of Myeong-dong are dotted with shops selling all kinds of snacks from Korean treats to international imports! The most popular Korean snacks are the Honey Butter Almond and Market O series. Honey Butter Almond snacks feature nutty almonds roasted in Korean honey and butter; they are great on their own or paired with a cold beer. In addition to the original flavor, you can also find green tea, tiramisu, cherries jubilee, and mint chocolate. For baked goods, check out the Market O series of Korean snacks, including brownies, cheese chips, chocolate crackers, and more. To try a variety of the products, look for a pre-packaged gift set!
