PNB, or Pungnyeon Jegwa, opened in Jeonju, Jeollabuk-do province in 1951. The bakery is most famous for its jeonbyeong cookie, which has been the main item on the menu since the bakery first opened. Though the bakery is now filled with a variety of breads and cookies, jeonbyeong is still very popular. The most popular variety of jeonbyeong is the peanut jeonbyeong, but the dried laver and ginger jeonbyeong are also delicious. The handmade choco pie is quite popular as well. This chocolate flavored bread is filled with nuts and smothered with strawberry jam and cream. Served chilled, the choco pie is best eaten with milk.
