Spazz Saturday #10 | Happy Pepero Day!

November 11, or 11.11 is an observance in South Korea similar to Valentine's Day. Because the date 11.11 resembles four sticks of Pepero placed side by side, the day has become known as Pepero Day.


For those who do not know, Pepero is a brand of cookie sticks dipped in chocolate syrup. Manufactured by Lotte Confectionery, the brand has been in the market since 1983. And on Pepero Day, young people and couples exchange Pepero sticks, sweets, and other romantic gifts

Happy Pepero Day, South Korea! 
And Happy Pepero Day to my husband, too! :)


It's Saturday! What are you spazzing on? :)

I remember eating this since I was young and it really taste good. I'm sure kids of this generation would still love it.

We actually have those in our commissary. I need to look and see what they are called. One packed is dipped in chocolate and another dipped in strawberry. Tasty but doesn't fill you up a bit! ;-)
