Korean Snack Time!
My only issue: I. HATE. RED. BEAN.
I can't express how much I love these walnut cakes. When I grab a bag of these hot little treats hot out of the press, nothing gives me more pleasure than popping them in my mouth and enjoying the mashed potato filling. I have distant memories when my mother used to drag me to the hairdresser but soothing the situation with these cakes (she was absolutely obsessed with perming my hair - and I still think that I was right to protest). More than a decade later, this little shop still exists and I have run many times to get my fill of Hodo Kwaja!!

Seriously - I feel that I'm the only Korean girl who does. Everyone loves B-B-BIG popsicles, Red bean ice cream, red bean-filled pastries...ugh. Sometimes my mother would buy a red bean dessert instead from a bakery and I'd absolutely refuse to eat it. I still do. There are some things that I'll never learn to enjoy - and with mashed potato-filled cakes, why would I need to?
No Red bean pleeease!
That being said - hodo kwaja (like many things) are best enjoyed hot off the walnut cake press - but it's not always easy to time!
