Gosomi are fantastic little biscuits with hints of coconut and sesame. They are super thin, very crispy and melt away on your tongue is seconds. The texture is a sensory wonder. The flavor is complex... its light, sweet, a little toasty and distinctly nutty with a taste of coconut. The packaging is very cute though a little odd. A golden yellow wrapper is decorated with fairytale-like illustrations of a little girl and a scooter and a baby rocker. If nothing else, the wrapper accurately (and strangely) conveys the idea of delicacy. I have been enjoying these treats for a while, knowing relatively nothing about them. Trying to add them to ThisNext forced me to do some serious research. Turns out, Gosomi is one of many snacks made by a large company called Orion Corp out of Seoul, Korea. This biscuit was reintroduced back in 2002, though there is nothing else said about its heritage. I did find out that "the sophisticated and modern packaging was designed by Komine Yuri, a Japanese illustrator for creative and mysterious-looking illustrations" Now that I've lectured you, treat yourself to a reward. Get some Gosomi!
previous review pretty much hit the nail on the head. these biscuits are so light and tasty. no overpowering tastes. perfect with coffee. :9
This is absolutely DELISH. I think of them as the Korean version of the Moravian cookies. They do go well with coffee and are a great light snack while at work. LOVE THEM.
