Dduk is a popular Korean snack. They're particuarly popular during the Korean Thanksgiving, Chuseok and the Lunar New Year. Dduk is a rice cake made out of a rice flour and can sometimes be sweetened.  It can be steamed, fried, boiled, etc.  It is loved by young and old alike, and you can often see various versions of Dduk being sold in snack shops and by street vendors thorughout Korea.  However, it can be an acquired taste, and unfortunatley, I haven't acquired it!   …
