Welcome to another scintillating Korean Snacks Blog Update. This time I have invited in a guest reviewer, Tom. You'll see why in a about 30 seconds (or more, depending on how fast you read.)
|Subak (Watermelon) and Mae-ron-ba|
I picked up these babies on the way home from class today. I remember Nid raving about them when we visited Seoul in October last year so I was pretty excited. I think they were about 700 won each (maybe 80c). I LOVE how cheap this stuff is, especially considering payday is next Wednesday and I have about $10 until then. Praise be for our well-stocked kitchen and Buan's lack of exciting activities.
I digress. Tom got this one:
Tom says 'it is delicious' and it 'tastes quite similar to a rockmelon' but he wouldn't call it refreshing.
I got this one, and doesn't it look awesome?!
|Just like the real thing!|
I picked it because I hate rockmelon (or cantaloupe, if you must). I should have learned from years of disappointment that watermelon flavoured stuff always tastes like rockmelon and is therefore gross, so I passed it over to Tom.
Tom didn't really like it either, he said they taste almost the same but the black seed-like things are probably bits of burnt corn. The verdict: Buy the green one.
