One of the traditions, I've learned, is that families give each other gifts of food during Chuseok. These gifts are either homemade or purchased at local stores... and they come in a variety of styles and packages.
Last week I was wandering around E-Mart... which, for those of you who don't know, can be compared to Wal-Mart.... except that in Korea, E-Mart has much higher prices. Department stores here are pretty popular and, if you're not careful, they can be quite expensive.
C and I were looking for some wine, when she pointed out a bunch of young Korean women dressed in traditional hanboks, standing around a giant display of what looked like gift sets.
Question is.... what kind of gift sets are worthy enough to give to families over the holidays?
These kinds of gift sets:
A lifetime supply of mystery meat... or the best present ever?
The Tuna Fish gift set
Tuna is used in a lot of delicious Korean snacks, like Kimbap.
Wonder why the west hasn't thought of this yet... ... ...
