Buy Snacks, Throw in Some Nitrogen

The title is a sarcastic remark about packaged snacks. Most snacks are packed in big boxes, but the amount of snacks is few and far between. More than two-thirds of the box is filled with nitrogen. Of course, the role of nitrogen is important in packaging. When fried snacks are exposed to air, it undergoes an oxidation reaction. As a result, snacks are discolored and the flavor changes. However, confectionery makers have raised their prices, adding fuel to consumers' fire. According to consumer research, the best snack is Market O Brownies made by Orion. This snack’s real size is 171.8, but the box is 1021.2. The box is five times the size of the snack. I will recommend some snacks imported from foreign countries with little packaging.

1. Tim Tams (Australia)

Tim Tams are called ‘Snacks of the Devil’. Tim Tam is a brand of chocolate biscuit made by the Australian food company Arnott's, and is available in several countries. A Tim Tam is composed of two biscuits, separated by light chocolate cream, and coated in chocolate. A Tim Tam is very sweet and delicious, and tastes even better with a glass of milk or soy milk. It costs about 1,000 won.

2. Loaker Wafers (Italy)

Loaker Wafers come in a handy pack that goes wherever you go, at any time of the day. There are 8 wafers in a pack. Loaker Wafers come in many flavors, such as vanilla, coffee, chocolate and strawberry. They are a good breakfast substitute. 45g of wafers cost about 1,000 won.

3. Jacker potato chips. (Malaysia)

These come in 4 flavors: vegetable, sour cream and onion, tomato, and cheese. Jacker potato chips combine great taste and good fun. They are perfect to have with beer because they are a little salty. You also get double the amount compared to Pringles, even though it is cheaper. These chips cost about 800 won, making them good value for money.

4. Danish butter cookies (Denmark)

These Danish style cookies have a smooth, rich taste. By comparison, there are twice as many cookies as in a package of Butter Ring cookies. They are even better with coffee. These cookies cost about 2,000 won.
