Buy our Seollal New Year theme Korean snacks box here. Read about all the snacks you will taste below.
Here in Korea the winter weather is cold but there is reason to celebrate, and that is New year! But in Korea we not only celebrate one New Year, we celebrate two New Years! While we also celebrate Shinjeong/신정 the “Solar New Year” that is mostly celebrated around the world, we are mostly focused on 설날/Seollal the “Lunar New Year”. Seollal occurs on the second new moon after midwinter and marks the first day of the new year on the Lunar calendar. Seollal is maybe the most important holiday in Korea so we are filled with joy that we get to celebrate Seollal with you!
During Seollal we meet family and relatives and eat rice cake in hope for longevity and good health - therefore we have filled this month’s box with rice cake type candy and other delicious snacks to give you a great start of a new and prosperous year! During Seollal it is also common to dress in the traditional Korean clothing 한복/Hanbok. You probably seen and know about Hanboks but did you know that a special attribute of the Hanboks is that they do not have any pockets? ^^ Instead we carry a Bokjumeoni silk bag like the once you get in every box, and this month you will get an exclusive traditional style handmade Bokjumeoni in beautiful colors that you can use in your daily life or as a decoration!
In this box you will find:
찰떡 파이/Lotte Chaltteok. A rice cake snack covered in delicious chocolate - a long time favorite among all Koreans.
