【看CP學英文】炎炎夏日,瑞典知名家居品牌IKEA近日推出美食新產品「冰狗」,熱狗堡中間擠上香濃霜淇淋,成為最夯IKEA夏日甜品,此消息更登上國際時尚雜誌HYPEBEAST,引起外國網友熱烈討論。

The Swedish furniture giant IKEA recently launched a new snack in Taiwan, the “Ice Dog” — a hot bun filled with mouthwatering ice cream. Thanks to its growing popularity, global fashion magazine HYPEBEAST also reported on the new food item launched by IKEA Taiwan, causing heated discussions among foreigners in Asia.

近日台灣網友紛紛在社交軟體打卡,放上「冰狗」照片,在網路刮起一陣炫風,甚至延燒到國外。總部位在香港的HYPEBEAST日前也報導這項台灣夏日美食,沒想到貼文一出吸引大批馬來西亞網友回應表示:「我們早就有了!」

The summer treat took Taiwan by storm, with many photos of “Ice Dogs” circulating on social media, and the wildfire has even spread to other countries. After HYPEBEAST, headquartered in Hong Kong, reported this Taiwanese summer delicacy, the post attracted many Malaysians who commented, “We already have it!”

「冰狗」相似於馬來西亞人小時候的回憶甜品「吐司夾冰淇淋」,對於馬國人來說算是國民美食,因此許多馬國網友看到報導後紛紛貼出家鄉味傳統甜品,認為這不足為奇。

The “Ice Dog” is similar to Malaysian childhood dessert “toast with ice cream,” which is considered a national dish in Malaysia.

In response to the report, many Malaysian netizens have posted traditional desserts of their country. 

許多外國網友在報導下紛紛留言:「早在80年代就有了,也太慢跟上了吧」、「當你們終於跟上馬來西亞的甜點」、「我們(馬國)從很久以前就有了,不是什麼新鮮事。」

Some commented: “Have been having this from the 80s. Way behind time over there,” while another said that our country has been eating it forever, it’s not a new thing.

Another wrote: “When you finally catch up to Malaysian Desserts.” 

除了馬來西亞網友之外,菲律賓人也出來曬出吐司夾冰淇淋照,表示家鄉也有吐司夾冰淇淋。

In addition to Malaysians, Filipinos also took pictures of ice cream with toast, saying that they also have ice cream with toast in their hometown.

根據台灣IKEA,全台目前僅有高雄、台中、台北敦北搶先開賣,每個售價25元。

According to IKEA Taiwan, only stores in Kaohsiung, Taichung and Taipei’s Dunhua North Road stores are selling “Ice Dogs” for NT$25 each as of press time.
