A few years ago, the South Korean convenient store chain, Withme FS, introduced this new ice cream bar specifically designed to alleviate those nagging hangover symptoms. The Gyeondyo-bar, which literally translates to “hang in there,” is made with grapefruit and oriental raisin-tree juice, an old-school Korean hangover cure. According to Reuters, a 2012 article in the Journal of Neuroscience found oriental raisin tree extract reduced symptoms of intoxication in rats.

Customs: “Sir, do you have any food items that you would like to declare?”
Me: “Only this 1/2 ton pallet of hangover-curing ice cream pops.”
