South Korean confectionery company Lotte is launching a unique flavored ice cream: spicy cheese rice cake (tteokbokki).
The limited offering combines a soft and chewy dessert with a national street snack, and is part of the company’s Chal Tteok ice cream line.
Tteokbokki is a dish featuring cylinder-shaped rice cakes, cooked in fermented red chili paste (gochujang). It is often enjoyed with scallions and fish cakes.
The Chal Tteok Spicy Cheese Tteokbokki Ice Cream boasts a jalapeno-flavored orange glutinous rice flour wrapper on the exterior. Inside is a cheddar cheese ice cream packed with spicy chips and cookie crumbs.
“The sticky texture of the rice cake and the sweetness of the ice cream creates a surprising harmony of taste,” the company said, adding that the dessert will be “fun to eat.”
Priced at ₩1,000 (US$0.89), the Spicy Cheese Tteokbokki Chal Tteok ice cream is limited to 500,000 pieces and will be sold in supermarkets and ice cream stores in South Korea.
