Patbingsu (팥빙수, also stylized as patbingsoo, literally red beans with ice) (with variant spellings including bingsu[1] and bingsoo[2]) is a Korean shaved ice dessert with sweet toppings such as chopped fruit, condensed milk, fruit syrup, and Azuki beans.[3] The snack is highly popular in Korea.

The food originally began as ice shavings with red bean paste (known as pat, ). It was traded among government officials. Many varieties of patbingsu exists in contemporary culture.

History

The early forms of patbingsu consisted of shaved ice and two or three ingredients, red bean paste, tteok, and ground nut powder.[4] The earliest forms of patbingsu can be found in the Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910). Government records show officials sharing crushed ice topped with various fruits.[5][6]

The modern forms of patbingsu are reputed to originate during the period of Korea under Japanese rule (1910~1945) with the introduction of a cold red bean paste dish.[5][6] However, the combinations of red bean paste and shaved ice is a Korean invention.[7] During the Korean War (1950-1953), foreign influence led to the inclusion of ingredients such as fruit cocktail, ice cream,[8] fruits, nuts, cereal, and syrups, and whipped cream.[7] In the 1970s and 1980s, popular ingredients included fruit cocktail, whipped cream, and maraschino cherries.[8]

Variations

Currently, there are a variety of patbingsu types and flavors. Many bingsus do not follow the tradition and some do not include the red bean paste.[9] Some popular flavors are: green tea, coffee, and yogurt.[10]

Availability

Patbingsu can be found at most fast food restaurants, cafes, and bakeries in South Korea.[3] Patbingsu is also a very popular dessert at cafés in New York's, Los Angeles', or Atlanta's Koreatown.[11]
