a new addiction

I really shouldn't be eating this, but...

At a convenience store not far from KMA's headquarters in Yeouido, where I normally teach for my KMA gigs, there are these Oreo-style ice-cream "bars," for lack of a better term.* I haven't seen them anywhere else, so I look forward to buying them whenever I'm doing a KMA class. I discovered this snack about a month or so ago, and I was instantly hooked: the vanilla in between the cookies is uncommonly rich and smooth, and the cookies themselves, while not Oreos, per se, are sufficiently Oreo-like to earn my seal of approval.

I know, I know: I shouldn't. Yet I must.

*Actually, as I'm sure you've realized, there is a better term: ice-cream sandwich.

What about the "SAND"? Not too crunchy?

Yeah, in East Asia, they like lopping off the final syllables in English words, so "air conditioner" becomes "air con," "remote control" becomes "remo-con," "apartment" becomes "apart," and "sandwich" becomes "sand."

Luckily for me, the ice cream was all smooth—no sandy grit anywhere.
