Korean Version of Tongari Corn

Posted March 27th, 2012 in Food 4 Comments »

I’ve been into this Korean snack that I bought from Spud Shed the other day…  This is exactly what I used to eat in Japan – “tongari corn”!

Actually, when I look at the photos of Japanese tongari corn they look thicker than Korean one, but it tastes about the same.

It got a hole in the bottom, and this is how people eat tongari corn….

Caps? Nail? People sometimes draw a face on it and do a “tongari corn play”.

They can be played as a “stacking corn” game where you stack up the corns and the person who collapse the tower is the loser.

Haha, the Korean snack just reminded me of these silly things I used to do in Japan.

    We have these in North America as well. They’re called Bugles and I love them! Though I don’t eat snacks like this much at all anymore.

    Hi Erica,

    Really?? Wow it’s interesting 🙂 Do you think the origin of the snack is Japan, or elsewhere?
    Thanks for sharing 🙂
