I don’t know about you but I love roll cakes so I was excited to try this Samlip Honey Dew Melon Roll Cake!
A few months ago I had this amazing Japanese Melon bread in NYC that I knew I wouldn’t find anywhere else but because of that, I really wanted to try this Korean melon cake.
Samlip (삼립) is a pretty common brand in South Korea. Having tried some of their other products before, I was hoping this would be pretty good as well. I found this melon cake while visiting the downtown Hmart in Chicago!
The cake bread is flavored like melon as well as the filling. However the filling flavor is much stronger than the bread. The filling is very sweet; to me it was somewhat grainy as well. The bread is somewhat dry but the filling helps make the pastry moist.
The good thing is that the cake is pretty lengthy (about 6 inches (15.24cm) so it’s big enough to share with other people.
I got these at Hmart Chicago.
Address: 711 W Jackson Blvd, Chicago, IL 60661

Would I buy Samlip Honey Dew Melon Roll Cake again?
I think there are many other melon flavored pastries out there that I would enjoy more. This melon cake was too sweet and too dry for me. It’s also too big; I could share this cake with 3 or 4 other people. I think it makes a great treat to cut into smaller portions and try it with ice cream or for a simple treat for a tea party.
