IKEA just announced their holiday menu, but netizens have latched onto a different limited edition food item. 

The Little Shark Bun has red bean filling, and is being sold for two dollars per bun. Although it was launched with IKEA’s Christmas menu, this little guy will only be available until 31 Nov.

Some netizens pointed out that it looks like IKEA’s iconic Blahaj soft toy, which is also an adorable blue shark. The toy went viral in 2018 when people started posting pictures of their Blahaj plushies doing human things online under #ikeashark, and the new shark bun reminded a lot of users about that trend.

Launched alongside the shark bun was IKEA’s charcoal hot dog and holiday menu. Most notable was the 1-for-$1 chicken wings, which are being sold in twos, fours and sixes. The wings will only be available on Singles Day (Nov 11) and customers can buy a maximum of twelve at a time.

There is also the briyani with chicken drumstick, which costs $5.50. This menu item was released for Nov 1 for Deepavali, and will be available until Nov 31. 

Lastly, IKEA Jurong and IKEA Tampines Singapore will offer different dishes for the festive season. IKEA Jurong is selling a Festive Platter Set for $21.90, with half a spring chicken, bratwurst, fries and nacho cheese. IKEA Tampines has two new items, the beef cheek with mashed potato for $13.50 and chicken chop with olive rice for $7.90.
