Finally! Got around to this. I had previously posted about Lotte’s “Premium Ghana” choco pie, but have neglected this, their standard choco pie, which by the way is sub-labeled Premium Quality.

“Fill your mouth with a pleasure of rich chocolate flavor everyday.”

It seems Lotte is second only to Orion in terms of the leading brand of choco-pie. I can barely tell the difference. I think Orion’s original invention is squishier. Non-Koreans will say that the less squish the better, but there’s so much nostalgia that Koreans associate with the squishiness.

There are six individually packed moon pies in one box, each pie weighing 28 grams (5.92 ounces). Ingredients: wheat flour, sugar, corn syrup, vegetable fat, shortening, whole milk powder, cocoa mass, cocoa powder, lactose, sodium bicarbonate (E500), lecithin, vanillin, vanilla flavor, vegetable oil (palm), sorbitol (E420).
