5 Korean Snacks to Warm You Up This Winter

5 Korean Snacks to Warm You Up This Winter

It is officially winter! Which means staying inside and cuddling up in warm blankets and fuzzy socks while binge watching your favorite K-drama. Do you know what would make the winter binge-watching even better? SNACKS! These five snacks will warm your body temperature up while the outside temperature plummets. 

  • Ramen

Ramen is a go-to snack for many people, especially during the winter months. The hot broth alone would hit the spot, but the noodles are an added yummy bonus. You can choose any flavour and any spice level to help you warm up.  

  • Hot Brew Coffee - Babinski

There are a plethora of coffee flavours on the market. Some of these coffees also come with K-pop idols faces on the bottle like the BTS Hot Brew by Babinski. The hot brew comes in one flavour, Americano; and you can choose which member you want!

  • Yuja Tea

This traditional Korean tea is made from yuja marmalade that you mix into hot water. Not only does this tea warm you up, but it has many health benefits such as a high vitamin C count, it can help with digestion and lower blood pressure, and it can help with common colds, especially during the winter. 

  • Samyang Tteokbokki

This type of tteokbokki is perfect for a winter snack! The Rice cakes will instantly warm you up and it’s the perfect size to hold and eat while curled up on your couch. All you have to do is add hot water to the fill line, microwave for a few minutes, and then you have a delicious snack to indulge on! With the Samyang brand, you can get hot original, chicken, or extremely spicy. 

A little snack hack: Add your tteokbokki to your ramen for another level of flavour!

  • Ho-Ppang (Steamed Buns)

Ho-ppangs are the convenience store version of jjinppang. They are steamed buns that are stuffed with a variety of ingredients. Meat and vegetables and cheese are just two savory options you can find. Sweet red bean paste is an option for a sweeter version. These steamed buns are kept in warmers in convenience stores and are a perfect snack to grab on your way home this winter 

These are all great snacks on any day, but they make the cold months a little easier (and tastier) to get through. What are some of your favorite winter snacks to enjoy? Let us know in the comments below!
