I love Oh Yes! Fond memories from Korea. The box says “Brand New” and there does seem to be an updating of the design but the taste and texture are as I remember them.
One box contains a dozen individually wrapped square cakes. Each square cake is a sandwich of chocolatey filling between two slices of sponge cake, and the whole thing is enrobed in chocolate and then decorated with a drizzle of even darker chocolate. I’ll take this over chocopie any day!
“Presents for your delicious taste. Enjoy your happy times. World Best Quality.” Not very healthful, needless to say.

Label also has a lot of information in other languages — Russian Cyrillic, Traditional Chinese, Vietnamese… Box also says it’s imported into the Philippines and Canada. The only Hangul I spotted was 오예스 (Oh Yes).
Aside from the desire to taste once again the yumminess of these snacks, what convinced me to buy it despite my knowing that it’s the least nutritious thing you could possibly eat was the fact that it was on sale at Gaju Market for just $1.99 — that’s quite a steal.
