There are currently five Pepero variants available in the market: original, nude, almond, strawberry and peanut. Last Thursday, I found out two new Pepero flavors that Lotte, the maker of Pepero, is introducing for Pepero’s 30th year. These are “hami melon” and “white cookie”.
I bought the “white cookie” Pepero for 1,200 at the convenience store, while the “hami melon” is 1,000 won. White cookie has 32 grams and there were only 8 sticks! The hami melon has 42 grams and more sticks.
Now for the taste! The hami melon does not contain chocolate, but it’s still sweet. It smells and tastes like melon candy. The white cookie is okay. Lousy reviewer, am I not? Well, I don’t think I’ll buy the two new Pepero flavors again. I guess I’ll stick with my favorite Pepero flavors ~ nude and almond!
Oh ~ Pepero Day is coming! Don’t forget to give a box on November 11th!
