Traditional Korean Snacks

Some traditional Korean snacks such as rice cakes and confectioneries are not only appetizing but have also played a significant part in Korean cuisine. From joyous occasions such as birthdays and weddings to the solemn memorial services, these foods are highlighted.

With there being over 200 variations of rice cakes in Korea, it’s obvious that they play a special role.

For example, they are consumed when praying for good health, and on holidays to demonstrate respect for their forefathers. Rice cakes can range from a highly refined version with various colors and shapes using a wide variety of enhancements such as fruits and nuts to plain a plain white rice cake that is used at home for cooking.
