Dalgona ( Sugar Candy)

Dalgona has become popular with the Netflix series the Squid Game. The name Dalgona comes from the Korean word “dalguna”, meaning “it’s sweet”.

Growing up in Korea, it was called ppopgi (which means pick or select) You would see street vendors selling these around the schools with various patterns to choose from. If you can eat around the pattern without breaking it, you would get another one for free so this was always a fun and competitive activity for kids.
