Dalgona Coffee | Korean Whipped Coffee


Dalgona is a candy that became popular after the Korean War in the early 1950s. Parents looking to make affordable sweets for their children heated sugar and water and then added baking soda. When the mixture cooled, it became an airy candy that’s sweet at first and slightly bitter toward the end.

Dalgona sold on South Korean streets resemble large lollipops with the outline of a shape – a heart, star or other simple design – pressed into the middle. The aim is to eat the dalgona around the outline without breaking the shape in the middle.

The Frothy Whipped coffee made by vigorously mixing instant coffee and sugar, and it’s now unavoidable on basically all social media platforms.
