Mung bean ice candy is a popular one in Malaysia and Singapore. I came to know about this first when we came to Singapore and a malay lady used to bring this to the playground and distribute it to the kids. Also the kids gets lot of flavours in ice candy in school. As how we make rose milk popsicle, orange juice popsicle, plain milk popsicle this can be made using popsicle moulds too. Last year summer also i ws looking for this covers but couldn’t get it. I got this through my friend who visited Malaysia a few weeks back. Thanks to rubini who got this for me all the way from Malaysia. Also she told she got this ice candy covers in a shop in Toa payoh too. So again i started searching for that in nearby Chinese shops. Hurray finally i found this SKP , its a chain of stores in Singapore selling all plastic disposable covers, plates etc. For all my Singapore readers , those who are searching where to get these candy popscile covers in Singapore, we have a lot of SKP OUTLETS IN SINGAPORE. So whereever you are you can easily find this store and ask them the ice candy covers. They have more than 200 plus covers in a pack which costs around 4 SGD.This is not a sponsored post.
