The Somsatang floss has gone next level recently with the introduction of supersized, colourful variations, including flossy creations emulating pop culture characters.
2. For those with an eye for beauty
Savouring a raindrop cake feels like eating a drink. Melting in your mouth, the cake is refreshingly light and often comes topped with crushed nuts and syrup.

An iconic dessert popular all over Korea and across all generations, Bingsu consists of shaved ice decorated with an assortment of toppings, from red bean paste to fruit, ice cream, rice cakes, biscuits, and candy.
4. For all you matcha fans
Green tea has recently become a hit flavour in Korean cakes, biscuits, ice cream, and even dumplings, with the bitter flavours providing a tasty contrast to the sweetness.
5. For those craving cuteness overload
Fish-shaped Bungeoppang is another favourite food court snack, especially in winter. Most commonly filled with sweetened red bean paste, these pastries are not only tasty but adorable to look at, too.
