When it comes to the world of ice cream there is a lot to choose from: gelato and granita, rolled ice cream, mouthwatering ice cream cakes and cookies, not to mention the very tempting fairy floss ice cream. So what's the latest must-try frozen trend? That would be bingsu.

What is Bingsu?

Bingsu is a Korean shaved ice treat. Unlike Italian ice, which is served plain, bingsu is served with an endless stream of toppings.

A cup or bowl of bingsu can be loaded with every treat imaginable: a slice of cake, edible flowers, a scoop of ice cream, strawberries, cookies, nuts, candies, whipped cream, and much more.

This Korean iced dessert was once only available to the wealthy but now everyone can enjoy bingsu.
