If 1943 was the year White Rabbit Creamy Candy was originated, then 2019 is when it gets trendy again in Singapore.
In case you have never heard or tried this candy before, the White Rabbit Candy is the stuff of Asian nostalgic childhoods.
Creamy milk toffee wrapped with a thin edible rice paper, this retro candy with its iconic wrapper has been around since the 1940s and originated from Shanghai.
For people who love all things “White Rabbit”, time to head over to the pop-up White Rabbit Candy truck at Shenton Way, right outside Singapore Conference Hall next to Farmers and Chef café.
The pop-up found at this vintage Volkswagen truck starts from ”around 11:30pm to 12pm” and ends about ”7:30pm or 8pm”, but that would depend if the items are sold out for the day.
What you can expect are merchandise such as T-shirts, stationaries and lotion; along with White Rabbit Candy Milk drinks in milk packs.
Four drinks are available, which include White Rabbit Milk ($5), Creamy Cloud White Rabbit Milk ($6.50), White Rabbit Rice Milk ($5) and Creamy Cloud White Rabbit Rice Milk ($6.50). “Cloud” would mean whipped cream is added on top.
The calorie-watcher in me decided to go for the White Rabbit Rice Milk ($5) added with White Konjac Jelly Pearls.
Said to be milder, there was an obvious White Rabbit Candy flavour within, though it was overall slightly on the sweet side for me. I could imagine people preferring a thicker and more ice-cold beverage.
The Konjac Jelly Pearls were crunchy with less of the guilt from the usual boba pearls.
Warning: It can get very hot queuing for this in the afternoon, as there are just two staff handling all the drinks plus questions about the merchandise.
The organisers didn’t really say how long would the pop-up last. So I guess, go before it is gone? That’s if you really want it.
