Oh goodness.

Each fluffy bun comes filled with a red bean filling that’s chunky and smooth. It doesn’t taste markedly different from your usual tau sar pau, but IKEA probably isn’t looking to reinvent the dish, anyway—the point is that the buns look outrageously cute.

But behind this endearing exterior lies a meaningful message. The turtle bun is released alongside the BLÅVINGAD Collection, a series of soft toys, aquatic textiles and more. This series aims to raise awareness on sustainability and the protection of marine life.

Aside from the turtle bun, IKEA has recently released the Rainbow Cake ($4.50) as well. This gorgeously layered dessert is reminiscent of old-school confectionery cakes, and features thickly layered cream that has a taro/coconutty taste.

If you’re in the mood for a Halloween-themed treat, then the Nutty Milk Chocolate Walnut Cake ($4.50) or Forest Berries Cheesecake ($4.50) should be up your alley. However, these sweet treats look more cute than creepy, so those who prefer their eats to be spooky might have to look elsewhere.

For something heartier, you can check out IKEA’s World Vegetarian Day specials. The Plant-Based Lamb Rendang Briyani ($7.50), for instance, is said to have the aromatic and piquant goodness of real lamb rendang, but with slightly different texture and less gamey taste.
