Legal crack! The road to hell and all that....

 
I set out at once for the Korean health food store.  They had never heard of emping.  Next I tried the imported foods section of the grocery store.  No luck there either.  Finally amazon: Emping Pedas (Sweet Hot Padi Oats)

Well, if one noted the name of the stuff on the package that Anna N posted, one would see "Emping Manis Pedas", which is MALAY, not Korean.  :wink:

p.s. "Padi" is also a Malay word, meaning rice - as still growing on the plant in the field.**

p.p.s. "Emping"¶¶ (in older-style Malay, properly "ĕmping") itself means "young rice crushed and cooked" (Winstedt)

 

**ETA: versus "nasi", which would be "rice" after it has been harvested and processed (and cooked, in most contexts)

¶¶ Google translate gives it as "flakes" which is not quite right.

Actually according to the wikipedia article rotuts posted it looks like emping are quite healthy...not counting the fat and sugar in the sweetened version.

 

Sadly, if it wasn't obvious, there is no Malay health food store in hiking distance.
