12 Food You're gonna miss while living in Korea
While some of the following snacks may not be impossible to come by in South Korea, you can definitely bet that you'll still be faced with a rather difficult time finding them.
Good ol' Hotdogs
Yes.. you'll never find a hot dog stand no matter how hard you look.
Authentic Baked Beans
'Baked Beans? What are those??' While high fashion and pop music may have made its way to Korea... sadly beans never did.
While high quality cheese is hard to find in general, these cheese flavoured crackers are somehow even more elusive.
If you're looking to find American style, branded pop-tarts, then expect a price mark-up. Otherwise, we guess you'll just have to settle for the Korean counterparts to this popular snack food.
Sour Patch Kids
These addicting sour and sweet gummies are a staple as far as American candies go, but the same cannot be said for their status (or lack thereof) in South Korea.
Reese's Peanut Butter Cups
Similar to pop-tarts, you can acquire Reese's Pieces IF you're willing to shell out some additional dough (in comparison to the prices you'd be paying for domestic chocolate snacks).
(Authentic) Ranch Dressing
While there may be several Koreanized dressings masquerading as "ranch," you'll be hard pressed to find anything that actually tastes authentic.
Whereas beef jerky is the hardy snack of choice for Americans, dried squid is basically the South Korean equivalent. Hopefully you're a fan of seafood.
Macaroni and cheese, or "Kraft Dinner," as it's commonly known in Canada, is yet another comfort snack that's difficult to get your hands on, especially if you're looking for the branded variety.
Thanksgiving feast necessities
Thanksgivings can be a sad time of year without all the turkey, stuffing, brussel sprouts, gravy, cranberry sauce and everything else that comes with it.
Good ol' Sriracha sauce
there are plenty of similar sauces, but nothing quite like the original Sriracha.
You'll have to make it yourself... good luck finding nutmeg and cinnamon though.
