Wait, I’m keeping that last one for myself.
The Song Lim Chocolate Company obviously used the same amazing tool when naming their Dual Chocolate Tangerine candy. While it’s not obvious exactly what makes this candy dual (or chocolate for that matter), it’s still a better name than Magnetic Frozen Tangerine.
The candies are individually wrapped and are made with real cane sugar. The English translation identifies them as “biscuit with white chocolate, citron flavor”, and they do contain both citron powder and natural citron flavor. They taste a bit like tangerine, and have a crispy texture thanks to an ingredient identified as “crunch seed”.
The package also presents a tourism tie-in. Near the Song Lim logo is a command to “visit Jeju-Korea”. This refers to Jeju Island, which actually sounds like an interesting place to visit. There is also a stylized drawing of the island’s dol hareubang (“stone grandfather”) statues which are known for their mushroom-like hats. While I normally comply with all orders from snack foods (such as “enjoy POP soda!!”), a trip to Jeju Island is currently out of the question unless Song Lim Chocolate Company comes through with a lucrative sponsorship deal.
