[Korean Slang] #42 민초(Mint chocolate)

Welcome to Wikinae’s Korean Slang #42


Do you like mint chocolate flavor?

Mint chocolate is one of the most polarizing foods in Korea 🌿


In today’s post, let’s find out how Koreans call “mint chocolate”!

✔ 민초 is short for ‘민트 초콜릿’ which is the Korean pronunciation of ‘mint chocolate’.


In Korea, 민초 (mint chocolate) has a polarizing flavor.

Fans, called ‘민초파/민초단’ (pro-mint chocolate group), enjoy its refreshing mint and sweet chocolate combination. Detractors, called ‘반민초파/반민초단’ (anti-mint chocolate group), often compare the mint flavor to toothpaste.
