Anyways, Jeju also makes some famous chocolate, one of them known to many as Jeju cactus chocolate. Cactus in chocolate?? Yeah, you got that right. According to one website, "Jeju cactus chocolate is made with cactus powder through vacuum lyophilization (I didn't know what that meant either) of Jeju cactus. It adds nutritive substance to deep and tender chocolate taste."
I've eaten this chocolate a few times now, mostly received as a gift from students and one time a lady from our bank. It's got an interesting flavor that one should give a try. You might not like it, but it's different that's for sure. The taste just pokes ya! Have you tried these before?
Here is an individually wrapped piece...that's a nice looking cactus:
...of course we gotta take a look at the back of this thing too:
The chocolate is made through a 3 layer sandwich process, with the cactus flavored layer (or orange) in the middle. Check out the chocolate making process if you're bored. Anyways, here's the picture you've been waiting for (those are my teethmarks):
The box looks something like this...time to find this in Homever:
When we head back home I will be sure to bring some of these chocolates with me. I will also pack some kimchi chocolates as well!
