I love brownies and I used to bake them back home in the Philippines (with a recipe I clipped from Seventeen Magazine sometime in the late 1980s), where I could easily get ingredients. When I came here, it was quite difficult to find cocoa powder. One time I bought a can of cocoa but it was only 20% cocoa and 80% sugar. How frustrating!
A few years ago, Orion (a snack manufacturer in Korea) introduced Market O. One of the products in their line is “Real Brownie”. My favorite Market O product was “Bread Chip” but they don’t have it anymore. My son loves their “Real Brownie” though, and he could eat four of them in one sitting.
When I pick my son from his day care this afternoon, we went to the nearby Olive Young and he got a box of Market O Real Brownie. It was 4,800 won for a box of seven.
A serving of Market O Real Brownie is 20 grams in size. It also has 100 calories, six grams of fat and 10 mg cholesterol. Oops, scary!
Anyway, a brownie is something one shouldn’t eat with frequency. Once in a blue moon is fine ;p
