Have you seen Netflix’s Squid Game? We’re sure you’ve seen memes of the gigantic creepy doll from episode 1 and memes of the red button and green button. There are also all the funny photos referencing Gong Yoo, the black box tied with a pink ribbon, and the card with the circle, triangle, and square, and of course, the honeycomb game—which if you didn’t know, is the inspiration behind the trendy Dalgona coffee.
One of the games played in Squid Game is the honeycomb challenge, where the players have to carve out a certain shape out of a honeycomb disc (ppopogi) using a needle. Some players had it easier when they had to carve a circle, triangle, or star shape, while the others were unfortunate to get the difficult shape of an umbrella.
If you want to try Squid Game’s honeycomb challenge, we know the spots where you can try it out:

La Vienne Bakery
Location: Omnistellar Building, Fil-Am Friendship Hi-way, Angeles City, Pampanga
La Vienne Bakery is known for its Strawberry Lattes and now they have their first-ever cafe in Pampanga that offers a Squid Game-inspired coffee named the Moon Rock Lattè (P179). It’s called such because the honeycomb disc looks like the moon, while the bubbles look like craters.
According to La Vienne Bakery, the Moon Rock Latté has always been their bestseller even before Squid Game. Before Squid Game, the bakery topped this drink with crushed dalgona, but then they decided to use the honeycomb or dalgona disc on top after Squid Game‘s popularity skyrocketed.
