Awesome Korean snacks to bring home from your trip! [Vol. 1]

In my opinion, there are two countries that seem to make packaged snack foods that go above and beyond the quality and creativity one would expect– one is Japan, and the other is South Korea. I imagine between these two countries, you will never run out of things to try. I don’t know about you, …

Sapporo Memories in a Travel Video + Homemade Langue de Chat Recipe

One of Sapporo’s most famous food icons is the langue de chat sandwich cookie. It’s French in origin but it’s enjoying quite a bit of popularity among locals and tourists alike. I guess it makes sense since making baked goods like this is a way to put Hokkaido’s amazing dairy to good use. It’s pretty …

Another trip, another snack haul! In case you didn’t know, getting to haul packaged foods like these from Japan and South Korea is one of the things that excites me the most about traveling there.
