Kanpan - 08-02-2009, 02:29 AM

This is not a popular snack outside of Japan and South Korea but has anybody tried this? The one with the one or two holes.

I suddenly have this kanpan craving after several years of withdrawal.

Thanks for the correction. Darn the silent "e".

I obviously don't know about Korea but I wouldn't call kanpan a popular snack in Japan. Not many Japanese eat it as a snack anymore. It's more like emergency food that people like to keep at home along with bottled water and such for possible quakes and typhoons. This is why kanpan mostly comes in metal cans than in plastic bags in Japan.

We also have kanpan here in China. It is super cheap and good with Nutella and coffee (personal preference). I practically lived off them when I was a student rationing beer money. When I was back home in the States, I found some at a local Korean market sold in a plastic Fig Newton style package. If you have a craving for them, you might check out K-town or at least a Korean market.

This used to be called "Hardtack" in America and was mostly used during the Civil and Indian wars here. I can't imagine anyone liking it as a snack. I even saw some that was made in the 1870's and still looked and smelled the same as fresh made.

What is Kanpan? I've never heard of it. Can someone describe to me what it is?

Hmm... I've never had it before. But I've heard of it. Sadly there is no Korean market near where I live
