Who does not love candy? Candy flavors differ from country to country and there many interesting types of Korean Candy in South Korea.
How are Korean Candy made?
Korean Candy are made with a large variety of ingredients such as chocolate, vanilla essence, sugar , corn syrup, food colors and different flavors that makes it sour and spicy as well!
Most of the candies are also made out of non gelatin ingredients as considering people's demand in it!
With so many varieties available, such as, chocolate, honey, and toffee there is definitely something out there for everyone.
Korean candy can come in all sorts of different shapes and forms, and sometimes they come in some rather interesting flavors.
An example of this would be the Lotte Anytime Milk Mint. It has never crossed my mind to combine the flavor of milk and mint together but somehow they work together. I will just add it to my never ending list of things of Korean treats to try. So many things to try, and so little time.
If you are more on the adventurous side, perhaps you have or have considered making your own Korean candy.
If you want to try making candy for yourself, consider trying out this Dalgona candy recipe.

A perfectly made Dalgona Korean Candy!
If, you are more like me and do not have the patience to make something and are looking for that instant gratification, fear not because SeoulBox has you covered.
In previous boxes we had candy like the Malang Cow Strawberry which was a soft candy that has a slight chewy texture and it tastes like strawberry cotton candy.
We have also had Ghana Chocobar which was almond chocolate bar and it was super delicious. Recently, SeoulBox also had Saekom Dalkom Lemonade candy. It was a soft caramel candy that was lemonade flavored.
In this month’s spa box, you will find Sour Lemon Coke Jellies. So to all my fellow sweet toothed people out there, SeoulBox has plenty for you to dive into.
Who is ready to eat some candy, because I know I am. Will you try out the Dalgona candy recipe, or have you already tried making your own Korean candy before?
If so, how was it and did it turn out as you had hoped? If you have had previous boxes, what was your favorite Korean candy?
So far for me, My favorite was the Ghana Chocobar, it made me wish I had super powers just so I could eat it again, that’s how good that chocolate bar was. Is there any candy or flavor in particular that you would like to try?
