November 11th! It’s Pepero Day! For those that are new to the holiday, it’s a day where you exchange Pepero (the stick-shaped, chocolate-dipped cookie snack). Whether it’s friends, a significant other, colleagues, or family members, Pepero Day is the day to show them you appreciate them with the sweet treat~ For those of us who will be celebrating the holiday outside of Korea, you can check out your local grocery store’s international food section for either Pepero, Pocky, or any other treats that resemble the number ‘1’ to share with your loved ones. There is a large variety of flavors to choose from, so be sure to try them all.
If you want to put a personal touch or maybe can’t get your hands on any Pepero/Pocky, there is always the homemade alternative. Many take stick pretzels and hand-dip them in melted chocolate, decorating with sprinkles or other unique personal touches. Share with us what flavors you’d love to receive or give this Pepero Day in the comment section below.
