Name: Crunch King (크런치킹)
Verdict: yum, but it needs more crunchy things!
Crunch King ice cream in Korea is really interesting Korean Ice cream snack and quite filling… after one of those I am good to go for quite some time! Basically it is a chocolate version of the waffle-style ice creams that come and go around here, which is great since they are often flavors like green tea or red bean flavor~ I know it is such a foreigner thing, but I really just do not enjoy those ice cream flavors hehe
The waffle is like all the other types you can buy here in Korea…. I swear they all come from the same factory (most likely lol). It is not exactly like a waffle per say, it is more airy and kinda cardboard-ish… it does not add much to the taste, its just kinda there to fill and contain the ingredients.
Inside you will find a nice portion of creamy vanilla ice cream topped with chocolate and crunch balls mixed in!

The portion of chocolate with ice cream in this treat is spot on for me~ the chocolate is more of a sweet dark choco so it tastes really great with the vanilla and not sickly sweet like milk chocolate can be.
My only gripe is it needs more cookie crunch-balls, the little things shown in the package!!! You do not get anything close to that amount! The dark chocolate has a very small amount mixed into it, but they are GOOD and add such a fun texture~ I wish it had double the amount! In the photo above you can’t even see any popping out of the chocolate…they are pretty sparse!
Just a note, it seems that this year Crunch King has changed its packaging! Looks nice!
Aside from my crunchy ball gripes, overall its a really good treat! Does not make too much of a mess and it’s one of the more interesting things to munch on out of the freezer section here due to all the different textures….at least for me anyway! Its a nice ice cream and not overly sweet despite all the sugar crammed in!
