My parents owned and operated a Korean grocery store (for over 35 years) so I pretty much had my pick at anything I wanted when I visited. I was literally a kid in a candy store and loved it — although it was shrimp chips, not candy, that I was after. I won’t tell you how many bags of these chips my brother, sister, and I devoured when we were kids.
When I was younger I hated the smells of the store — of the fish, kimchi, and garlic. As I grew older, my reaction to those smells changed and now they bring back fond memories and transport me back to those days where I was running through the aisles, grabbing whatever I could.
