Take your own ‘Squid Game’ challenge at this local bakery

Updated November 4, 2021 - 12:37 pm

A Las Vegas bakery is making the popular candy from the Netflix hit “Squid Game.”

Jo’s Malasadas (6370 W Flamingo Rd #20), which specializes in Hawaiian-style doughnuts and pretty desserts, started making the viral treats three weeks ago.

The dalgona candies are imprinted with a shape that customers can try to free without shattering the entire disc.

While the stakes are not quite as high as in “Squid Game” — where failing to release the shape leads to execution — shattering the treat will lead to a mess of sticky crumbs.

Customers can try to etch the shape out with a toothpick, break up the edges or simply chew their way through.
