The Squid Game honeycomb challenge, among other games featured in the South Korean survival thriller, has sparked curiosity among many Netflix viewers who are intrigued to see whether they could beat the characters from the show. Naturally, I wanted to test my honeycomb carving skills under pressure too. However, the process ended up being a lot harder than I expected, even though I only needed two ingredients.
But before we dive into the my disastrous experience in attempting to make Squid Game’s honeycomb candy, let’s sum up the show for those who are unfamiliar.
In case you’ve been living under a rock for the past month, Squid Game has quickly become a streaming sensation with the potential to become the most-watched Netflix show of all time, rivaling shows like Bridgerton and Emily In Paris. In short, the survival thriller is a mixture of Hunger Games and Battle Royale. The plot unfolds as 456 people struggling with debt join a mysterious series of children’s games to win a ₩45.6 billion prize (or $38.7 million in U.S. dollars). The only downside? Well, whenever a player is eliminated, they die.
