'85°C Bakery Café' is a Taiwanese bakery that serves squid ink pastries covered in a layer of garlic butter. Although the idea of using squid ink as a form of food colouring is not new, many North American consumers were unfamiliar with the practice until the release of Burger King's black Halloween Whopper. This bakery offers a different take on squid ink by using it to make savory garlic buns.

85°C Bakery Café is a Taiwanese bakery franchise located throughout the US, Australia and Asia. On an average day, the bakery produces anywhere between 2,000 to 3,500 pieces of bread. One of the bakery's most popular items are its Japanese calamari sticks. These unusual black pastries are died with squid ink and then coated in a layer of garlic butter.

The unusual black pastries reveal one of the countless uses for squid ink in consumer food products.
