We feel like Korea and Japan are always pushing the boundaries when it comes to inventing new and unusual crazes or fads, particularly in the snack food department. In fact, when you visit any Korean and Japanese supermarket you are guaranteed an entire aisle fully stocked with snack food. Some stuff is seemingly normal and others not so much.
Especially there are many interesting chips and corn snack you must try Korean and Japanese chips like Honey Butter Chips! When Honey Butter Chip (허니버터칩) first came out, there was fierce nationwide competition to grab a bag before it sold out everywhere! This potato chip has the perfect balance between sweet and salty. Shrimp Flavored Crackers, or sae-woo-kkang (새우깡), is a classic Korean snack from 1971. Reportedly, 4-5 shrimps are used to make each bag. This is by far the most popular snack to pair with Korean soju! Kkokkal Corn (꼬깔콘), the Korean equivalent of Bugles, takes 1st place in total sales in 2017! The classic way to enjoy this snack is, of course, to stick them on your fingertips like Wanna One‘s Hwang Minhyun is doing. Matdongsan (맛동산) is also a tasty fried snack with crushed peanut sprinkles. This snack is known to destroy the roof of your mouth because of how crunchy it is!
