Taste test: On first glance, this snack appeared to be a close copy of the various Korean chocolate pies. The looked like those in the picture, and each pie was individually wrapped in a foil wrapper about the same size as the Korean ones, though the wrappers did appear to be quite inflated with air. But when I opened the first wrapper, it turned out that these round pies were noticeably smaller than the other ones.
I crunched in for another surprise, as the texture was different too. The inside was more like cookies than cakes, and the cream center was more like congealed cream and less like marshmallow, with a higher overall density. The taste was quite good, as was the texture — a nice change of pace from the usual pies.
Another oddity here was the number of pies: Seven? Yes, lucky 7! It's rare to find a snack multi-pack with an odd number of items.
Smell test: Good chocolate smell.
