Buckle up snack fans, we are flying into Asia today to review a Korean Snack for our international snack blog. Last time we reviewed a snack from South Korea we took at look at Nongshim Shrimp Flavored Crackers. Our review of that snack was one of our first salty snack reviews. This review is our first sweet snack from Korea and we are looking forward to it!
Upon opening the package we discovered a small light colored cake that looks a little similar to miniature muffin. Lucky our test group only consisted of two tasters, this Korean snack is not meant to be shared. To peak inside prior to the test we broke our Lotte Custard Cream Cake in half. The cream was not as smooth as I would assume but the cake was moist and had a pleasant texture. The flavor was more mild than I anticipated but it was very welcomed. The cake is not overpowering and neither is the filling. The overall flavor was very subdued but we both found the snack very enjoyable. It did hint to the flavor of a Hostess Twinkie but seemed a little more grown up. Although our 10 year old Director of Taste enjoyed it as much as I did.
Will World of Snacks incorporate Lotte Custard Cream Cakes into our regular inventory when we launch our international snack store later this year? Chances are you will be able to purchase this Korean/Japanese snack on a regular basis. To be notified of our grand opening be sure to leave your details to the right. Keep on snacking!
