Enjoyed snacking on this “premium cheese cake” from South Korea’s Crown company. Those two layers that sandwich the white filling are not crunchy! Didn’t remind me of a cheesecake to be honest, but it was a sweet, yummy treat to eat.

There are six individually packed fingerling sandwiches in the box. Has a lot of Korean copy on it, but the requisite English sticker label identifies the product as BAKEY. The first syllable is a long a, as in 베이키 (beh-yi-ke). Original New York Style ~

Ingredients: wheat flour, egg, vegetable oil, sugar, corn, syrup, cheese powder. I think they meant “corn syrup” without a comma after the corn. According to the box, the white cheese filling in the middle is cheddar.  Sure, whatever…

A recommended serving size is 2 packs (40 grams). Label says there are two servings in the box (three, based on my math).

Nutrition Facts: 100 calories per serving, 50 are fat calories. Total Fat 6 grams, 2 grams are saturated, and 2.48 GRAMS TRANS FAT. No cholesterol. Sodium 37 milligrams. Total Carbohydrates 9 grams. No fiber. Sugar 3 grams. Protein 1 gram. No vitamin A, vitamin C, calcium or iron.

Hah! Now that I’ve typed out the nutrition facts, there is no way I’m buying this again, even if it’s delicious and on sale. Trans fat is so not good.

Distributer [sic]: Nishimoto Trading Company, Ltd. Santa Fe Springs, CA 90670 USA. Product of Korea. Net Weight 4.02 ounces (114 grams).  UPC bar code number 8 801111 182911.

Have to admit that the packaging is pretty cool. The stated retail price on the box is 2,000 Korean won. I was able to buy it on sale for just 99 cents at Gaju Market because the expiration date is October 26, 2009.  Sold out immediately.
