Happy Pepero Day! 빼빼로 데이!

pepero-99626_1280

Everyone knows Valentine’s Day and surely White Day has also become a lot more known after Hallyu wave has spread. But did you know in Korea there is also Pepero Day?

Pepero Day is celebrated on November 11, the 11th day of the 11th month! Notice how the two ones together look like two Pepero sticks standing beside each other.

Aside from the date of Pepero Day, do you realise something else when you put two peperos together? Don’t they look like two people standing closely together? Just thinking of this Pepero Day, you now probably realise it is something very close to Valentine’s or White Day. On Pepero Day peoplegift peperos to a person they have affections for. Although this is mostly expected for couples, I am pretty sure your family and friends would be happy to receive your pepero affections as well!

But did you know that Pepero Day didn’t have a very romantic start? Because of the thin and long feature of peperos, the original thought was that if people give each other peperos and eat 11 Peperos on 11/11 at 11:11 o’clock, you will become thinner and taller! Hmm, I’m not so sure about all that sugar though, don’t you think?

Nevertheless, if you want to give it to someone to cheer them on their body goals or if you want to give it to people you truly care for, I am sure anyone who receives it will be so happy. This month we’ve included a chocolate dipped flavour Pepero and a nude chocolate filled pepper to snack on with whoever you choose!
