Everyone is talking about The Squid Game at the moment, and if you’ve not watched it on Netflix yet, I suspect the incessant talking amongst your friends will encourage you to give it a try sooner or later.

Well, and don’t worry – this isn’t really a spoiler, there’s a game in it that’s based on the Korean Dalgona candy – and there’s now a bubble tea café in the Corn Exchange where you can try it out!

A brand-new addition to the Corn Exchange, A Nice Sip have taken inspiration from the hit Netflix survival drama by gifting all visitors throughout October a FREE dalgona candy with the purchase of two regular drinks.

You’ll get either a triangle, circle, star, or umbrella to cut out. Can you keep your patience?

The honeycomb toffee is a sugary treat with a light, rigid, sponge-like texture and fans of the show will recognise the sweet treat from the series, where the contestants are tasked with cutting out different shapes from the biscuit in a nail-biting time limit.

Choose from either a regular fruit tea, hot chocolate, coffee, or more traditional Oolong tea to grab the free snack challenge.

There is a limited quantity of the dalgona candy each day, with the biscuits given out on a first-come-first-served basis. So, head on down to the new café and enjoy a traditional drink whilst taking part in the nail-biting challenge.
