Global News published this video item, entitled ““Squid Game” dalgona treat sees huge boost in sales for South Korean vendor” – below is their description.
A South Korean sweet featured as one of the lethal challenges in the Netflix hit TV series “Squid Game” has become a global craze, boosting business for the candy seller who provided the confection for the show.
The show has become a viral hit by depicting childhood games with deadly consequences. One of the challenges has the cash-strapped contestants on the show carving out the symbol etched into a sugar candy called dalgona without cracking the whole piece or risk being shot by masked enforcers.
Dalgona is typically sold with a variety of shapes but “Squid Game” featured four: a triangle, circle, star and an umbrella.
An Yong-hui, 37, has been making dalgona for the past eight years in a university district in the capital Seoul.
He now sells over 500 dalgonas a day from less than 200 before the show’s premiere.
