Every so often I stop by the local Korean supermarket to buy food. I always wander down the snack food aisle to see what interesting things they have in stock.
In the past, I was rather amused to find hard tack…or the modern Korean version of it.
Here’s another example. It even has a sailor on it!
This evening, as I looked at the various types of cookies and crackers on the shelves, the packaging for something called Binch, caught my eye. I think you can see why.
I was curious as to what Binch means. I found a couple of blogs that state that it’s derived from “Biscuits and Chocolate.” Makes sense.
The biscuits come individually wrapped in shiny packets.
The first one I opened had this image on it.
It’s different from the picture on the box. It would be interesting if there are assorted ship images. I guess I’ll soon find out.
It tasted a little bit like an unsalted Ritz cracker with chocolate on it. Not bad.
ETA: I opened another packet. This one had a treble clef and harp design.
ETA1: Ah, that’s more like it! Four-masted barque.
