With actual cooling effect!25 October, 2010 by Chad
Was attracted to the shiny and colorful foil packaging of this candy over at Mediya. It appeared to be some sort of Shaved Ice/Ice Kachang flavored hard candy. Since Shaved Ice is really just sickeningly sweet syrup and ice, I was curious as to how such a sweet would actually taste. Prepared for the worst, I grabbed a packet for about $3.
There was a mixture three different flavors in each packet, Melon, Strawberry and Lemon. Popping one into my mouth lead to quite a surprise. Each of the candies were sprinkled in some sort of “Cooling Coating”, that actually works and you could feel a temperature drop in your mouth.
Furthermore, the center of the sweet was filled with a “Cooling Powder” that immediately dissolves in your mouth and becomes a refreshing syrup. Those interested in giving the gimmick a try, can find this Shaved Ice Candy for sale at the tidbit section of Liang Court’s Mediya supermarket.
