South Koreans rejoice after 16 years of waiting for limited Chex cereal



South Koreans rejoice after 16 years of waiting for limited Chex cereal

SEOUL, South Korea – South Korea has waited 16 long years for savory and crispy bites that will satisfy their tastes and correct their famous mistakes. This week, they can finally fill the bowl with the cereal they want: Chex flavored green onions.

The taste of Kellogg Korea’s limited edition released this week, complete with interesting advertisements and apologies for waiting, has taken a surprising cultural significance for strange culinary experiments.

In 2004, the company advertised a public vote for a new product: chocolate flavored cheki or green onion flavored chaka.

Chaka was led by an extraordinary margin, but duplicates were said to be damaging to the online election and Cheki was declared the winner.

Many South Koreans see the results as more than a marketing accident.

“This is kind of representative of a greater problem in South Korean society,” said Raphael Rashid, a freelance journalist based in Seoul who writes about South Korean politics and culture. “South Koreans are used to or have experienced dictatorships, you know, like for years, even decades.”

Chocolate’s triumph is “a kind of reminder” of that, he said.

It brings to the surface buried old memories for Yoon Gunhee, who voted in the famous election.

He said he was around 13 or 14 when he found an ad for flavor selection on the back of the cereal box.

“At that time, I was young so I chose chocolate,” said Yoon, a freelance game graphic designer. “Green onions really don’t taste.”

He remembered the people around him chose the taste of green onions because they thought it was funny.

Yoon said he was entertained this week by a friendly ad for Chex green onions – featuring a popular South Korean singer stating, “Sorry, I’m sorry that the taste of green onions arrived so late” and “the promise must be kept,” with scientists in dresses white in a laboratory that works to develop perfect taste.This video has played more than 900,000 views on YouTube.

Yoon said he wanted to buy it “at least once.”

“The vote rigged at the time was an unpleasant experience,” he recalled. Although the memory is small, he is reminded every time he sees a box of Chex.

“I think I’ll be able to sort out my feelings after eating Chex-flavored green onions,” Yoon said.

South Korean Twitter has rejoiced by uploading their Chex photo. Some of them, who are adventurous, sprinkled pieces of green onion cereal as a garnish on typical South Korean dishes including kimchi and spicy ramen noodles.

Like Americans, South Koreans usually eat their cereal with milk, but some say Chex green onions taste better on their own or with drinks like beer or soju.

Rashid positioned himself as the first person to try it and get an online box. On Thursday his face turned sour when he first felt it.

It has a “background flavor of artificial onions,” he said, reminiscent of onion ring snacks popular in Korea.

“It doesn’t taste good,” said Rashid, gargling between the bites. “And I think Kellogg knows that maybe it doesn’t taste too good.”
