chang gu snack


These ring shaped snacks may look vaguely like Hula Hoops from the Western world, but don’t get it wrong, they are totally different! Crunchy and lightly drizzled in honey, here’s a warning – they’re pretty more-ish.

grandshell apple biscuit


Anyone for apple pie? This resembles a slice of a piping hot apple pie, straight from the oven! Mmmm…

flaxseed almond cookie


Looking for that healthy Korean snack? Here’s one you should note down! As you may know, flaxseed is a superfood – high in antioxidants and gluten free, which also means guilt free!

You may also receive other snacks that vary from the above.
