Korean Pure Love Wafers (International Shop, Birmingham University)


This is another of the biscuit products purchased as in import from Korea. I think they are called ‘Pure Love’, it is hard to be sure, but this is some of the only English text on the box!
The biscuits themselves are individually wrapped in foil, which I really like as it keeps them fresh for lunch boxes etc. Inside the wrapper the biscuits are quite thin and are decorated with a pattern of white and milk chocolate on the top. There are two very thin strips of biscuit with a creamy fondant holding the two layers together. They taste a little like shortbread, but have a wafer like feel because of the thickness. The chocolate topping and fondant gives them a lovely creamy sweet flavour, and white chocolate fans should really try and seek these out!

I'm about to eat one - they are nice, but not filling at all.

Love the French words on the box. Almost don't want to know what they mean (guessing it's the same as the English - Pure Love).

Hi Cin,

These look aweomse. I have never tried any product from Korea myself. Plenty of Japanese though.

Thanks so much for sending that Lindt bar - it was so well wrapped :D hopefully I can get it up on the site in a few weeks.

Keep up the good work.

Thanks
Jim

NLi10 - Spectre went back to that shop today and bought some strange products for me to try... this time a couple of drinks! Will write about them very soon.

Jim - Do let me know how you get on with the Lindt bar! I just love foreign food shops... so many new things to try ;-)
