So, according so the label this is a ‘rich flavored sweet-edged wine’. In reality, however, it tastes like grape juice. It is overly sweet, and in my opinion, it is undrinkable…at least in its straight, unadulterated form. It may possibly be suitable for sangria, but as it is only 10% ABV, one would have to add a good slug of something strong to balance everything out. Luckily, it was only 2500 won.
So, I picked this up at the CU (a chain of convience stores in Korea) the other night on my way home from work. I thought it might be some sort of iced tea. Opened it up tonight and tasted it…it has a sort of old sock flavour.
After some googling, I’ve managed to deduce that it’s actually a hangover cure! Guess I’m prepared for my next night out! Unfortunately I still have no idea what’s in it. Also the flavour is…well…quite unpleasant. Luckily it was only 2500 won (about $2.80 CAD).
I picked these up at the grocery store the other day. ..there was some English on the label, which was helpful. However, I wasn’t expecting them to be sweet! I will not be buying them again, but if anyone is craving sweet pickles (if that ever actually happens) these are the pickles for you!
