Have you ever suffered a nightmare called “hangover” after a party with your friends? If yes, then this is a “sweet” news for you, especially if you are in Korea: An anti-hangover Ice Cream now has hit stores in South Korea.
Being known as the hardest-drinking country in Asia, the Korean hangover cure industry invests $125 million per year in producing pills, cosmetic products, and food to treat heavy drinkers across the country. But now they have made a new revolution: a hangover cure more delicious than ever. A South Korean convenience store chain has introduced a hangover-curing ice cream bar.
Those ice cream bars are called the Gyeondyo-bar, translated as “Hang in there”, and according to the company, it is the first ice cream bar marketed specifically to combat the after-effects of alcohol consumption. The bar is grapefruit flavoured and is full of antioxidants. Drinking in groups of co-workers is a big business in South Korea. It is a way to strength and develop friendship, business dealings, and trust. A famous fermented wine called Soju is the top choice there and is available at a low price of US$ 1 per bottle. Every night; 7 million bottles of Soju are sold in South Korea. Unfortunately, only Korean drinkers can now enjoy this “sweet cure” but you can also visit Korea and experience their culture without worrying about hangover!
