Baked by: ABC Bakery, Ho Chi Minh City
Pre-COVID-19, China had been purchasing vast quantities of dragon fruit from Vietnam. When trad and travel restrictions put a halt to these imports, ABC Bakery improvised. Instead of wasting tons of fruit, they replaced 60% of the water in their dough wuth dragon fruit smoothie. According to Business Insider, the bread was an instant hit and ABC Bakery had to ramp up production, baking 20,000 loaves a day to meet demand.
