Lotte Pepero Original

Pepero is Korea’s answer to Japan’s Pocky. More pre­cisely, this Lotte Pepero Original is their answer to the Glico Pocky Chocolate.

doesn’t tol­er­ate warm­er tem­per­at­ures very well unlike Pocky. The chocol­ate dis­col­oured and melted slightly over an Australian sum­mer even when stored in a cool dark place. Taste while, the fla­vour of the chocol­ate is a sweet dark chocol­ate with a chalky tex­ture, while the bis­cuit is crispy. Overall, the fla­vour of the bis­cuit is com­par­able to Pocky but it lacks the creamy tex­ture of the dark­er chocol­ate notes of Pocky.

This box of Lotte Pepero Original con­tained 180 grams or 5 bags each with 16 pieces. It was pro­duced in Korea and gif­ted by fam­ily vis­it­ing Hong Kong in 2016.
