This month we’re introducing the Korean New Year: Seollal, and of course we’ve included a selection of snacks that befit this theme: starting off with a pack of tteokbokki – a cult favourite street snack which can now be enjoyed anywhere you go! Along with two packs of seaweed, you can snack on them alone or use as part of the New Year recipe -Mandu guk. Finally, for some fun – a honey and cheese flavour potato snack. Yes – honey and cheese! A new year means trying new things!

Part of the new year’s tradition is receiving envelopes of ‘lucky money’ (saebae ton 세뱃돈) from elders! Elders will give these envelopes to younger children, or older children to their parents or relatives – a way of spreading luck during the new year! Who will you gift some lucky money to?
