Creme Brulee is created by caramelizing sugar under a broiler, with one other intense heat source, or by pouring cooked caramel on top of the custard. Local Creme Brulee is extremely sweet.

Also, Dagwasang is a traditional dessert when a guest visits a house and when they feel slightly hungry. It consists of Gang-jung, Yak-gwa, and Dasik. First, Gang-jung is a snack of a roasted mix that consists of peanuts, rice, and barley. It is sweet and tastes good when chewed continuously. Next, Yak-gwa is a fried snack, a mixed mass that consists of flour, oil and honey. Dasik consists of pulverized sesame and beans, and sometimes rice flour. The mix is kneaded with honey, sweet drink and various pulverized powders (e.g., mung bean, black sesame). After making the dough, it is pressed into various molds shaped like flowers, birds or Chinese characters.
