My honor students have always liked my news reports on Korea, so they asked to be in one... so I thought I'd have them help me out this one time.

Because we did this as a school project, I had a number of students want to help. As such, the camera work is a little off, but it was a grand experiment.

The students also spoke a little softly, and while I tried to boost the audio, you may not be able to hear what is being said.

Food #1 - "Tteokbokki" - this is a spiced-up rice cake in a red sauce. It's great. It dates back to the Korean Royal Court Cuisine times and underwent a change during the Korean war to make it into the spicy dish we have today.

Food #2 - "Sundae" - a blood sausage indicative of Korea. It's made with meat and other stocks, such as rice, and placed in a pig's intestine. The original recipe dates back to the Josen Dynasty with instructions being printed in the 19th Century.

Foods #3 and #4 - "ColPop" and "Tornado Potato"- A ColPop is an on-the-go snack that combines a soda (bottom) and a treat (on top). It allows the consumer to eat and drink in a hands-free way... perfect for traveling. A Tornado Potato is a sliced and fried spindle of potato on a skewer.
