The sweet, hot buns by Yum Cha are a take on the popular Asian dessert that encourages consumers to play with the food prior to eating. The buns are decorated with edible faces that are meant to be poked and squished to allow the custard to ooze out as if from the edible character's mouth. The combination of eating and play creates a fun and interactive experience for diners.

The buns are dyed in bright colors and feature edible eyes that turn the pastry into an animated character. Eaters are encouraged to use their hands enjoy and play with the food, squishing the bun so that the custard flows out and creates a mouth for the edible character. The buns are available in two prominent flavors including salted egg yolk and green tea matcha.
