Sweet Korean Candy
Yeot - one of the signature traditional Korean deserts - is Korean-style sweet and sticky toffee. It is made by mixing boiled grain with malt (this process converts the starch in the ingredients into sugar), and then boiling the mixture down to a very thick syrup. Koreans enjoy their own version of candy, yeot, just as people in the west like marshmallows, toffee, taffy, and other types of candy. Recently, the Korean company Sancheong Oriental Medicinal Herb Institute developed this traditional Korean candy as a modern product, Yutts, and began exports to the US.
Healthy Dessert with Oriental Medicinal Herbs
Yutts is made by mixing boiled Korean rice with malt. It does not contain any artificial colors or MSG (monosodium glutamate). For the consideration of customer health, several Korean medicinal herbs (Korean angelica root, mulberry leaves, balloon flower root, safflower seed, and rehmannia glutinosa) are added. They are cultivated in Sancheong county, which is renowned in Korea as a place of origin for many oriental medicinal herbs.
What’s more, Sancheong Oriental Medicinal Herb Institute, in collaboration with the story-telling company All That Story, has developed five types of the product. Each has a distinct name such as “When Working till Late,” “When You Fall Behind in Your Studies,” and so on. This helps consumers choose the type of Yutts that suits their condition and situation. Thanks to the sensational package design, the product has become very popular with young people in their 20s and 30s since it was first released last March.
