Where to get your White Rabbit fix – from kueh lapis to body lotion
If you haven’t yet noticed, the iconic candy is making a comeback. We’ve listed down some White Rabbit-inspired products – edible or otherwise – you can check out.
White Rabbit is a staple in many Singaporean’s childhood snacking culture. And if you haven’t realised it yet, it’s making a comeback in all sorts of ways. From food and drinks to even non-edible products, the iconic candy is making its presence felt.
We’ve listed down some White Rabbit-inspired treats to consider. Nin Jiom Pei Pa Koa ice cream has nothing on these.
KUIH BAHULU AND KUEH LAPIS
Bored of the usual Chinese New Year goodies? Astound your visitors with this array of Chinese New Year offerings from Gin Thye – there’s kuih bahulu (S$18 per bottle), kueh lapis (S$20 per 350g) and blancmange roll. The latter comes in both original and chocolate flavours, at S$18 and S$19.80, respectively, for 400g.
Gin Thye is at 427 Sembawang Road. Alternatively, order online at https://festive.ginthye.com
MILK DRINKS, BINGSU AND SMOOTHIES
Last October, White Rabbit opened a pop-up truck store on Shenton Way, next to the Farmers and Chefs cafe at Singapore Conference Hall. It was such a success that White Rabbit officially relaunched its milk drinks (S$5) at the cafe itself.
Meanwhile, homegrown bubble tea spot UNICE is also offering its own yummy treats – the smoothie (S$3.90 for medium and S$5.90 for large) comes in an oh-so-Instagrammable cup and you can have the dessert bingsu, too. The latter is technically not a menu item by itself but served as an add-on to any of the other drinks offered at the store. Of course, the full White Rabbit experience dictates that you pair it with the smoothie.
You can also drop by a 7-Eleven, which now sells White Rabbit-flavoured packet drinks at S$2 per 200ml.
Farmers and Chefs Cafe is at 7 Shenton Way, #01-04 Singapore Conference Hall, while UNICE is at Northpoint City, 930 Yishun Ave 2, #B2-135.
CAKES AND CHIFFON ROLL
Pine Garden is known for its selection of high-quality affordable cakes, and they pulled out all the stops for their very own White Rabbit vanilla milk cake (S$38 to S$116), which is filled with milky cream and topped with candy chunks.
Not to be outdone, Cakeinspiration also has a slew of chiffon rolls that come in three flavours: Original, bandung rose, and Oreo. If the six-inch-long rolls (S$18) are a little too much, you can opt for the mini-sized four-inch rolls (S$11.80) instead. Expect a light and fluffy treat that will leave you craving for more.
Pine Garden is at 529 Ang Mo Kio Ave 10 #01-2369, but the cake will need to be pre-ordered on-site or online at https://www.pgcake.com. Cakeinspiration is at 253 Joo Chiat Road. You’ll need to let the shop know in advance via Whatsapp (9190 3668) or by ordering online at https://www.cake-inspiration.com.
BODY LOTION, PERFUME AND MORE
Last but not least, if you would rather not eat or drink White Rabbit products, here are some other things you might like. White Rabbit recently released a line of beauty products that includes shower cream (S$12.60 for a 295ml bottle), body lotion (S$14.50 for a 295ml bottle), unisex perfume (S$28.10 for a 15ml bottle and S$55.30 for a 50ml bottle), hand cream (S$5.80 for a 30ml tube) and even a car fragrance diffuser (S$20.60)!
The products are a collaboration between White Rabbit and Scent Library, a Chinese fragrance retailer and distributor. Now you can smell like your favourite candy too.
