Skittles, Mars bars, marshmallows, gummy bears — these are all staple candy classics that aren’t new to most of us. But what if there’s a new way to enjoy these sweet treats?
If you’ve been living under a (pop)rock, it’s time to come out and try the viral freeze-dried candies that have been trending all over social media (especially TikTok) recently!
With all the water and moisture removed from the candy thanks to the freeze-drying process, these sugary snacks are supposed to become even more flavourful and intense on top of the addictive and crunchy texture. So if you already like the taste of a particular candy, you’ll love it after it’s been freeze-dried!
I’ve always lamented that these crunchy treats were difficult to get in Singapore — so imagine my delight when I came across a small business on our little island that specialises in these viral candies.
From 5 January to 20 January 2023, Astral Candy, otherwise known as @astralcandy.co on Instagram, will be having a pop-up booth at the Giant hypermarket in Tampines (opposite Ikea) just in time for the Lunar New Year festivities!
Indulge in some fruity freeze-dried Skittles and sweet marshmallows, or for those who prefer different layers of textures, the freeze-dried Mars bars and Cadbury Eclairs. If you’re one who likes tangy and mouth-watering sour candy, there’s also freeze-dried sour Skittles available.
Best of all — while it’s not HALAL-certified yet, these tasty treats are made without any pork, lard, or alcohol, so anyone can enjoy them and they’d make the perfect novelty gift for friends!
Prices are also pretty affordable, beginning from S$10.90 per bag. Considering how you’d have to pay for shipping (and in US dollars!) when you order from the usual TikTok-viral shops, this is really reasonable. Plus, you’ll be able to get your hands on the yummy treats immediately!
Ready to do your own taste test with these unique sweets? Head on over to Astral Candy’s pop-up booth at Tampines’ Giant Hypermarket ASAP!
