Savor the flavors of Seoul and add these foods to your next shopping trip The global fascination with Korean culture continues to intensify, and with it, Korean food is gaining significant traction worldwide. Particularly, famous dishes such as gimbap or mandu (Korean dumplings) are growing in demand. This is one of many factors which has paved the way for prominent Korean brands such as bibigo to establish an even stronger presence in major U.S. grocery stores. The bibigo brand is a fan favorite both in Korea and globally due to its blend of home-cooked flavors with a budget-friendly price tag. So it is no surprise they have demonstrated a steady market dominance of nearly 50% in the U.S. dumpling market throughout the last year. As there is a vast array of dishes available to choose from, today CJ Newsroom presents a shopping guide that will assist culinary enthusiasts in navigating their way through Korean cuisine at Walmart, Costco and Target. bibigo Steamed Dumplings, Chicken and Vegetable Starting off with a family favorite, Chicken & Vegetable Steamed Dumplings are a hearty meal filled with juicy chicken paired with veggies such as earthy mushrooms and sharp onions encapsulated in a thin, chewy wrapper.

The need for high-quality, easy-to-prepare food led to the launch of their first pre-cooked rice product, and today it continues to be a quick, quality meal option for anyone, anytime. bibigo Korean Style Crunchy Chicken Korean Fried Chicken is perceived as a K-drama and party staple in Korea.
