Snacks The Korean snack industry rarely makes new snacks, instead choosing to release new flavors regularly. Choco Pie, well known among even tourists, is one great example of this, with recent new flavors including black sesame, powdered soybean, and banana. The powdered soybean flavor in particular is very popular, offering a savory taste due to the high levels of powdered soybean-flavored syrup packed in with the marshmallow filling. Another new, less sweet snack is the Yukgaejang Ramen flavored Potato Chip, a collaboration created with the company making Yukgaejang Ramen. Kkobuk Chip, a newcomer to the snack industry, is coming in strong with their Choco Churros flavor snack, following the original corn soup and powdered soybean flavors. The new flavor was so popular, it has even sold out in some places! If you see a package, don’t hesitate or someone else will grab it!
