Tongues at the ready!
Obsessed with Squid Game? So are we. This Korean Netflix show has absolutely dominated our hearts and minds, and is the number one show on Netflix in 90 countries. If you haven’t seen it yet, Squid Game is a thrilling survival show in which hundreds of contestants play Korean childhood games for the chance to win some money. However, if they lose the game, they die. One iconic moment in Squid Game is the dalgona, or honeycomb, challenge. This childhood game is fairly simple. You just have to cut a shape outside of a layer of sugar and baking soda. But, in Squid Game, if you’re unable to take this shape out without cracking, you die.
Now, Melburnians can try their luck and take the dalgona challenge themselves.
Squid Game Dalgona Challenge at Palette
Palette, a Korean restaurant in North Melbourne, has stocked up on these sugary treats, so you can play the game.
The dalgona candy will be available in-store on weekends for a limited time only. Play the game with your friends and then wash it down with a delicious drink.
While players won’t have access to needles, Palette is encouraging customers to use their tongues to play the game. And, unlike the TV show, violence is not allowed.
