    From Pocky To Hi-Chew, People Are Sharing Their All-Time Favorite Asian Snacks, And My Mouth Is Capital 'W' Watering

    "My ride-or-die, endgame snack. They come in a variety of flavors, but my faves are brown sugar milk tea and tiramisu!"

    If you're like me, then you'd probably agree that there's a huge emotional element to food, from nostalgic childhood snacks to core-memory-triggering foods. As a Korean American, that means there will always be a particularly special place (or, perhaps, weakness) in my heart for Asian snacks. And I'm always looking for more.

    So, I recently asked the BuzzFeed Community to share their absolute favorite Asian snack, and they did not disappoint. So without further ado, here are 25 mouthwatering Asian snacks that I'm adding to my next grocery list:
