School life is one of the most important and memorable parts of our lives. While the time we spend with our friends forming meaningful relationships goes on to become precious in the years to come, following routines can get monotonous and never-ending. To give you a sense of respite from all the deadlines, here's a list of delicious Korean snacks that will energize you on your study breaks and give you the refreshment you deserve!
It wouldn’t be wrong to say that the right amount of chocolate can flip a bad day on its head. Pepero is a famous chocolate cookie snack that comes in multiple flavours, and is the perfect snack for your hard school days. Not only is this absolutely delicious, but it’s also super easy to eat! Great for your long study sessions, Pepero will give you the breather you need!
- Ice Cream Bungeo-ppang
Our beloved fish-shaped bread is taken to a whole new level! Being a student requires attending a lot of classes, which means that it becomes difficult to sit down and eat meals. Bungeo-ppang (fish bread) comes with a red bean filling, which is replaced with ice cream for all the dessert lovers out there. While the classic Bungeo-ppang comes with a red bean filling, the strawberry and chocolate ones are matched with strawberry and chocolate fillings. Although, there are extravagant presentations to this snack, Samanco offers ready to go ice cream pouches that you can munch on, even in class!
- Corn Chips
Chips are probably one of the easiest snacks to eat, and corn chips most definitely live up to expectations! Seasoned with the perfect balance of sweet and salty powder, corn chips may have you finishing the whole packet in a jiffy without feeling too overwhelmed!
- Banana Milk
Banana milk is on its way to becoming Korea’s national drink, and rightfully so. Balancing the sweetness of the milk with the perfect banana flavour, this drink will ease your stress right away! They come in little round-shaped containers, making it easy for you to grab one on the go!
- Coffee Milk
Talking about flavoured milk brings us to this famous Korean drink that seems to be designed for all the hard-working students out there. Providing you with the caffeine kick you need, coffee milk will prepare you for those days that seem longer than they actually are. Pick one (or many) of these drinks and stay strong!
It is true that carbonated drinks are super unhealthy, but it does give us that temporary satisfaction we crave from time to time. This last snack will make you feel less guilty because this comes with nutrients that are good for you. Milkis is a creamy yoghurt soda drink that gained popularity over the years. It might take you some time getting used to the taste but once you do, there is no going back!
To all the students out there, know that you are doing your best!
