Ppeppero! Ppeppero!

Last weekend I wanted to eat in a Korean restaurant but I don’t know how to get there so my sister suggested to visit a Korean convenience store. I checked on their menu and found out that they only serve Korean noodles and kimbap. We are about to go when I noticed the Korean snacks they sell. There are noodles, snacks, chocolates, and even soju! I saw that they also sell Ppeppero so I bought 2 boxes. Ppeppero is popular in South Korea every Valentine’s Day. For more information, read below.
Pepero (빼빼로) is a cookie stick, dipped in chocolate syrup, manufactured by Lotte Confectionery in South Korea since 1983.
Pepero Day is an observance in South Korea similar to Valentine’s Day. It is named after the Korean snack Pepero and held on November 11, since the date “11/11” resembles four sticks of Pepero. The holiday is observed mostly by young people and couples, who exchange Pepero sticks, other candies, and romantic gifts. 
As of 2007, it was sold in 10 different flavors:
- Regular or Chocolate
- Strawberry-flavored
- Almond Chocolate
- Nude (chocolate in the center)
- Nude Lemon Cheese
- Cocoa
- Soft
- Cheese
- “Woman in White” and “Man in Black” are slightly more “classy” brands of Pepero, and both have chocolate cookie bits scattered throughout the chocolate dip.
Thanks to Wikipedia for the information about Ppeppero! ^^v
