Blog giveaway: 11.11.11 Millennium Pepero Day

I was surprised to see my husband’s cousin on one ad of “Pepero” – Korea’s popular pretzel stick snack. My son asked why he (the cousin) was on the banner outside a GS25 Convenience Store. My husband’s cousin is an up-and-coming gagman (as they call stand-up comics here) on KBS2’s Gag Concert. Last year, he won the KBS Rookie of the Year award and was on several ads. Too bad that he didn’t attend the wedding today. I would’ve asked for his autograph as not-a-few of my students are amazed that we’re somewhat related ;p

Back to Pepero – do you know that we’re celebrating the “Millennium Pepero Day” on 11.11.11. That’s how we write dates here in Korea. The last two numbers of the year (11), followed by a dot, then the month, followed by a dot and lastly the day.

Last year, I bought a box of Pepero that my son gave to his schoolmates at his day care center. I don’t think I’m going to do that this year since he’s attending a bigger day care. Instead, I’m going to give my blog visitors two packages of Pepero. Just answer this question correctly: how many flavors of Pepero are there in the market? You can post your answers until 11.11.10 at 11:59 PM. Two winners will get a package each of Pepero in all flavors ;p By the way, I love nude Pepero!

Update: Removed the Rafflecopter since it’s not showing the actual entries ;p So far, only one entry is correct.

  2. My first time to join~
    According to wiki, there are 10 flavors since 2007.
    BUT, according to your previous blog posts, there are just 4 variants/flavors (original, almond, nude, and peanuts) as of 2010, that is. So I guess my answer is 4.
    TBH, I have no idea since I’ve only seen and tried the original variant. πŸ™‚
