  3. So, for those of you who haven't tried hobak yeot,호박엿,Pumpkin seasoned yeot,I have tried it as a Korean.It doesn't sell traditionally nowadays.But I found one seller about 70 years old selling it.I've tried his yeot,Hobak yeot.It was very sweet at first.Then,it becomes softer like taffy.Then it becomes a softened taffy(like when taffy kind of melts in your mouth) then it disappears.It's very good,you can bite or melt it in your mouth and eat.It's very sweet like candy, many kids will like it.
