In NCT U‘s English version for their track “Make A Wish (Birthday Song)”, Jaemin and Lucas name drop plenty of sweets like Skittles, jam-filled donuts, ice cream with sprinkles, and milkshakes.
To keep in line with the theme, Jeff Benjamin asked the group to name their favorite desserts during their Forbes interview. Jaemin introduced a sweet treat that’s been on the rise in Korea.
Since Jaemin has a major sweet tooth, he had three favorite desserts. The first was one that he can’t get enough of: an Americano—with extra shots of espresso for an added kick.
Similarly, the second still had coffee in it. It was an Italian tiramisu. His last favorite dessert was entirely different from the first two.
Jaemin revealed that it was a new dessert that’s taking Korea by storm, “I don’t know if you know it, but it’s actually really popular in Korea right now, a croffle.” What is a croffle, you ask?
He explained that it was a hybrid similar to a cronut or croissant and donut. “It’s a combination of a croissant and a waffle.” It’s tastier than you’d think.
Not only can the croffle be served plain or stuffed with various fillings…
the hybrid dessert can even be garnished with more sweet toppings. No wonder Jaemin loves the sugary treat.
Are you ready to give it a try, if you haven’t already heard of the newest dessert? It’s so simple that you can make the dessert right at home.
