I was intrigued by outside-seoul's observation last night that Eun Chan apparently eats her Choco-Pies frozen. Not wanting to pass up a new way to enjoy my new favorite Korean snack food, I stuck one in my freezer and waited a few hours for it to get nice and chilly.
My verdict: sorry, Eun…
Fascinating! I wonder if they make a Choco-Pie variant that has ice cream in it, not marshmallow? The packaging and cake in CP look like normal, but maybe they’re different?
Hmm, could be! An ice cream-filled Choco-Pie definitely sounds tasty. On the flip side, I also just read that microwaving Choco-Pies is the real way to go…supposedly they taste kind of like s’mores. Maybe it’s time for another experiment :)
I love microwaving unusual things. I wonder if it will explode, though? I’ve nuked many a narshmallow Peep, and they expand to like twice their size before melting into a delicious, sugary sludge. To keep its structural integrity, you could probably only microwave it for 5 or 10 seconds.
Update: Operation Nuke a Choco-Pie was a success! About 10-15 seconds is enough to transform an ordinary Choco-Pie into a warm, gooey treat that retains its original shape and does indeed taste a bit like s’mores.
