Actually the English label on a sticker on the back of the box says Black Sesami (misspelling). No matter. I enjoyed eating these crackers a lot.

Jean-François Millet (밀레) is given credit for the painting — The Angelus (만종), 1857–59, currently in the Musée d’Orsay in Paris. I guess the art is in the public domain? Anyway, the packaging design is very good.
[singlepic id=170 w=100 float=right]There are two individual packs / servings in a box. The crackers are sweet and crisp, and dotted with a few black sesame seeds.
Serving Size: 18 crackers (46 grams). Honestly, I didn’t count but they didn’t seem to be that many.

That has to be the most poorly written English label I’ve seen on a South Korean product. But that’s not as important as taste, and these crackers tasted good.

The hangul says that the box is recyclable paper and that the retail price is 1,000 Korean won. I think I was able to get this on sale for just 99 cents at Gaju Market.
