In the depths of winter, I have been casting my mind back to the hot, sticky days of summer. It was horrible - far too humid to be considered humane. The only thing that kept us going was ice cream.
Ice cream in Korea is brilliant. Most of the time. And cheap. Oh so cheap.
We wanted to photograph and write about every one we tried this summer but we reached an average consumption rate of approximately 2 ice creams a day...each, and it was simply not possible to keep up!
Here are a select few:
(Please note: ₩500 is approximately 30p)
|Possibly one of the best ice creams -
a cookies & cream ice cream bar.
A steal at only ₩500 !
|It's always a risk going for something that looks
like chocolate because there's a chance it could
be red bean...but this wasn't. A simple wafer
outside and chocolate ice cream inside.
Nothing special, and a bit pricey at ₩1,200.
|This one is brilliant. An ice cream sandwich with
cake, rather than biscuit, for the outside layer.
This one was vanilla but I have since discovered
the far superior cookies & cream one.
A bit of a treat though, because it's ₩1000.
|This one is, as my students would say, so-so.
Vanilla outside, layer of chocolate and then
vanilla again. Not amazing, but only ₩500
and most importantly, cold!
|We once saw a documentary while on a coach,
that was about Korean ice cream and apparently,
this one is actually harder than your teeth!
Watch out! I'm not a fan of melon flavoured things
but this was ok. And only ₩500 - can't complain!
|Genius. Watermelon ice lolly that looks like a slice
of watermelon! The "seeds" were actually bits of
nut and the flavour of the ice was spot on.
And the price? Yup, ₩500!
