One of Ikea's most recognisable plushies is Blåhaj (pronounced Blaha), also known as the shark plushie.
They may not look exactly like Blåhaj due to the lack of teeth but still make for an adorable sweet treat.
Shark buns with sesame filling
On July 12, Ikea Kaohsiung shared an advertisement of the popular shark bun with sesame filling that was selling for NT$35 (S$1.69) each.According to the advertisement, it is made with wheat flour, sugar, palm oil, red bean, sesame, yeast, salt and soy bean powder.
Numerous netizens have praised both the looks and taste of the buns.However, one Wei Cheng Sun said his daughter who tried the bun found that the outermost layer was "tough" but could not stop gushing about how cute it looks.
Often sold out since April in Taipei
A search on Facebook suggests that the adorable buns were available in Taipei at their Neihu outlet as early as April.
Their immense popularity has even led Ikea Taiwan to impose a purchase limit of two per customer in order to allow more customers to try it.
Another indication of their popularity is when they have signs to inform customers that the buns have been sold out for the day.
They have even resorted to selling a limited number of buns per designated time slots, which have also been snapped up quickly.
The store was "packed with people" that was "unlike a Monday", according to a customer who went down on May 3.
While Ikea Singapore has not brought the shark bun to our shores, they have recently launched a new lobster laksa spaghetti and fish and chips with nacho cheese sauce.
