A Beijing bakery has set a dessert-making challenge based on the idea of ​​”Squid Game” in its store, as it seeks to capitalize on the huge popularity of the South Korean series broadcast on the Internet by “Netflix”.
Customers can pretend to be one of the series’ characters by taking part in a candy-making challenge for 58 yuan (nine dollars) by trying to turn a mixture of sugar and baking soda into a cute biscuit.
There is no prize for success and no penalty for failure, unlike the TV series where winners receive huge cash prizes, and losers are punished by death.
“Our customers are mainly young people who represent a large number of fans of this series,” said Hao Jing, owner of “DIY Bakery & More Store” and herself a huge fan of the series.
Participants in the challenge, which takes about ten minutes, choose shapes from metallic cookie molds, melt sugar, add baking soda, and then turn the mixture into shapes. The last stage is difficult because the mixture hardens quickly and becomes brittle and prone to cracking.
In the nine-episode thriller, cash-strapped competitors play children’s games with deadly consequences, seeking a prize of 45.6 billion won ($38 million). The series has caused an uproar in the world since its broadcast in September.
