Jolly Pong is a sweet snack that is delicious on its own and not too dry like a pie. However, it can taste a bit plain by itself. In fact, in Korea, Jolly Pong didn’t initially gain much popularity until it was introduced in the U.S. military bases in Korea, where soldiers started eating it with milk instead of Corn Flakes, and it became a hit.

Enjoying Jolly Pong with Milk

Prepare some cold milk. Hot milk will dissolve Jolly Pong too quickly, while cold milk maintains its crispy texture.

Pour the milk onto a plate and first eat a mouthful of Jolly Pong with milk. It’s recommended to enjoy the crisp texture of the snack with milk first.

Since Jolly Pong is a small snack, it’s hard to eat an adequate amount with milk if you use a small spoon. So, it’s better to use a spoon at least the size of two thumbs.

Start by enjoying the crunchy Jolly Pong and then slowly mix more into the milk, allowing them to soften slightly. The moistened Jolly Pong with milk offers a different taste experience, with a sweet and tender texture.

Don’t forget to drink all the milk after finishing your Jolly Pong. The sweetness from the Jolly Pong makes the milk taste even better and is one of the main reasons to mix it with milk!
