K-pop Lightstick Cookies

Every Kpop group has their own trademark when it comes to their merchandises. One of those is the lightstick, this is used during the concert as it symbolizes their love and support for the group they want whenever they perform on stage. Most of the people rage to buy this lightstick especially if it is for their love for the group, so am I. You can also use them as a collection for your Kpop goods as they are packages are one of the aesthetics things that you can collect on. Most roughly the estimated prices of the lightsticks depending on the entertainment company were around 20,000 won to 40,000 won but when you are an international fan, it cost around 30,000 to 50,000 won depending on the fees included from the product.

In my case, I already have 4 lightsticks- Eribong Ver. 2 Lightstick (EXO), Aghabong Lightstick (GOT7), Candy Bong Lightstick (TWICE), and Ppyeongbong Lightstick (Blackpink). I have to say these lightsticks costs a lot as I am an International fan but it was definitely worth it as I have them. I’ve been using them for fun and aesthetics whenever I am into something. I also used my Eribong Ver. 2 Lightstick during the Elyxion Concert in Manila that happened last April 28,2018

In this recipe, I’ll be showing you how to make few lightsticks- which are the Eribong Ver.1 and Ver 2 Lightsticks and Nable Bong Lightstick (WannaOne) Cookies. If you are an EXOL or a Wannble fan, Feel free to have my recipe if you are interested to make them.
