A cafe in Manchester is asking customers if they are up for the Squid Game challenge after introducing a new menu item that takes inspiration from the hit Netflix survival drama.
A Nice Sip, which recently opened in the Corn Exchange, is currently gifting all visitors a free dalgona candy – the tasty treat featured in the series.
Customers who purchase two regular drinks will receive the biscuit with a triangle, circle, star or umbrella to cut out, just as ‘players’ have to in the programme.
The honeycomb toffee is a sugary treat with a light, rigid, sponge-like texture, which fans of the show will recognise from a challenge that contestants have to complete in a nail-biting time limit.
Owners of the cafe said they will serve up a limited quantity of the dalgona candy each day, with the item given out on a first-come-first-served basis.
A Nice Sip is a trendy bubble tea cafe that specialises in fine tea and ingredients directly imported from Taiwan.
It first set up its business in Hong Kong and Asia before expanding to the UK three years ago.
The company has three sites in Manchester and one in Belfast, and is currently looking to open branches in other cities with franchise partners.
