Lotte Crunky

This was a present from a Korean friend who brought it back after a trip home. Lotte is a company with bases in both South Korea and Japan, and seems to be the Nestlé of that region.

It’s a combination of milk chocolate and puffed rice, and the most remarkable thing about this bar was how thin it was. I don’t think I’ve seen a bar this skinny in a very long time, and I couldn’t help wondering if they had to source tiny rice to puff especially for this chocolate.

Unfortunately the chocolate itself was very average. It didn’t have any great flavour to it at all, but I had to bear in mind that it had travelled an awfully long way!

I think it’s safe to say that you won’t see my eyes light up the next time I see a Crunky bar. It was unremarkable, run-of-the-mill stuff, and there’s far too much fantastic chocolate being made out there for me to ever want to be bothering with stuff like this.

    I think that might be my favourite chocolate name since Goplana Klasyczna Gorzka Karmelowa. :)

  2. I agree with Dom; the name Crunky brings to mind a lot of things but decent chocolate isn’t one of them!

    I’m sorry but to me this is only the best candy bar God ever gave man the power to create, and I LOOOOVE chocolate. I lived in Korea for almost a year, and my weekend ritual was waking up shopping the markets going home, bar hopping(well I was babysitting my hubby and his friends lol) Waiting till 2am when the soldiers were on Kerphew(sp) and being sent for all the snacks since I was the civilian. Top of my list Crunky bars, then I’d go get the boys there Yaki Man du(sp again).
