When it comes to Korean snacks, there are many ways you can go: salty, sweet, rich, plain, or wholesome, are just some of the countless ways you can describe these indulgent snacks. Fans of Pepero will love the crunchy biscuit drizzled with a little naughty chocolate coating, while fans of something softer may opt for a rice cake (tteok) cookie because of its unique texture – gooey and chewy, yum. Spoilt for choice? Why not choose them all!
Instead of searching for the perfect Korean snack of all time, we’ve compiled the perfect Korean snack for every occasion. We chose snacks based on your daily activities, so now you can have a little treat to look forward to as you get through the day. Think of it as a wine pairing, but much more fun!

While Watching a Drama
Maybe it’s episode 12 of an intense arc where the second female lead makes her triumphant return. Or, maybe the two main characters discover that they were never meant to be together. You’re biting your nails frantically on the edge of your seat. In tense moments like these, it’s none other than classic Pepero that is the perfect Korean snack. This crunchy biscuit will keep your sweet tooth satisfied and help you de-stress during high-stress drama moments. The great thing about Pepero is it’s available in several different flavours, you can never get sick of it!
After a Workout
After a long run on the treadmill or a sprint at the gym, the first thing on your mind might be a snack to help soothe your aching muscles. While a protein-filled snack is always top choice, why not treat yourself for your hard work? After using all your energy on leg press reps, a Strawberry Pie might be the saviour you need. Small and portioned, a great fruity and chocolate combo that will satisfy but won’t knock your calorie count way off track. Live a little and indulge!
Before a Test
After long hours of studying and possibly quite a few coffees, nothing seems to keep you awake or alert any more. Well allow us to introduce Secom Dalcom. The tangy peach flavour is the exact zap you need to keep you energised and performing at your top level. You might have woken up too quickly and hadn’t wiped the sleep from your eyes. No problem — Secom Dalcom will wake you up and give you enough of a kick to write your test. Maybe pass it, too!
After a Long Day at School
The life of a student tends to be a never-ending cycle of wake, study, sleep, repeat. What better way than a trusty snack to keep you going? When you’re low on power and can feel your energy draining, look no further than a Rice Cake Cookie. This chewy, glutinous snack is comforting, as all carbs usually are, and will be the perfect end to an otherwise stressful day. Dare we even say this is the perfect cookie for winding down whilst watching the latest Music Bank show.
