Happy Pepero Day!

Yay! I almost forgot that it’s Pepero Day today. One of my classmates brought Peppero in our class today and we each had a stick. LOL! Pepero Day is celebrated on November 11 – 11.11 – got it?

What is Pepero anyway? It’s a pretzel stick manufactured by Lotte. There are three variants available – milk chocolate (red packaging – chocolate coating), almonds (green packaging – chocolate and crushed almonds coating) and plain (white packaging – no coating). My favorite is almonds while my son likes the plain chocolate.

Pepero Day started in 1996 as a marketing strategy for the confectionery. On this day, people give and receive the delicious pretzel sticks. You can even find specially arranged “Pepero Day” gift packs.
