(SPOT.ph) The impact of Korean pop culture around the world manifests itself in many forms—from Korean skincare and makeup brands, to K-Pop, to the snack known as Pepero, which trended online when it was included as part of the rations distributed to Pasig residents on July 20. These pretzel sticks are a favorite for their light, crunchy texture, making them an addictive treat any time of the day. They're so popular in their home country that they even have a day dedicated to them—November 11, also known as Pepero day, during which people exchange boxes of the snack with each other.

While Pepero's most basic Chocolate variant proves to be a classic, the pretzel stick also comes in other lip-smacking flavors.

Check out all the different Pepero flavors you can find:

This is essentially a reversed take on the original Chocolate with chocolate inside each stick. While it essentially tastes the same, this format makes it easier to eat without getting chocolate on your hands. A related variant that exists is the Choco Filled Pepero.
