As a kid, when I ate a white rabbit candy for the first time, I tried to peel off the plastic thing.
As did we all, I’m sure.
My mum was like, “Aiyo! That one can eat one la!”
And then I was like:
I was like, “Is it my mum wanna poison me?! I knew it! She loves gor-gor more than me!”
Of course, later after trying it, I learnt that it truly was edible.
In case you don’t even know what I’m talking about or what white rabbit candy is, it’s this nostalgia-flavoured snack:
Yes, this somehow-coated-by-plastic candy is all it takes for me to feel like a dumb blissful primary school kid once more. Want a longer trip down memory lane? Check out this article.
Capitalising on nostalgia is an easy business tactic, as it pretty much guarantees a hook onto potential customers.
So, what’s next?

Priced at only $3.90 a cup, it’s surely more affordable than everyone’s Xing Fu Tang boba and even a regular Starbucks drink.
If it truly tastes accurate to the snack we all know and love, then this smoothie will possibly be sickeningly sweet.
Maybe it’s just me, but the smoothie painting a white canvas behind the unicorn logo makes for a really nice image.
Are you wondering how good it is before deciding if you’re going to make a trip down?

Unice – Haven’t seen any White Rabbit Candy BBT in SG so this was a surprise! Probably the first in SG to have White Rabbit Candy drinks & even bingsu also!! The White Rabbit Candy drinks that I usually see on IG are usually from Msia or China sed 😞 But then again Unice has a lot of interesting drinks and they always have something new so no surprise they are a pioneer in this. If I had to describe them in one word, it would be colourful 😂 ____________________ 🥤: Pearly White Rabbit Candy Smoothie (M) with mango popping pearls (fixed topping), fixed sugar level 💸: $3.90 𝐕𝐞𝐫𝐝𝐢𝐜𝐭: Legit tastes like White Rabbit Candy 👌🏼 𝐎𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐚𝐥𝐥 𝐫𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐠: 🌑🌑🌑/5 😋: It REALLY does taste like the white rabbit sweet!! Hits you with a wave of nostalgia at first but then halfway through the drink, you’ll be hit with a wave of sweetness overload HAHAHA. Recommended to um drink this slowly & maybe take a break in between or else you’ll get sick of it v fast. It is a tad too sweet than I would have liked it but then again the white rabbit candy itself also quite sweet de. It had this milky vanilla taste and I think the fact that it’s actually a smoothie (blended), it fared better than it would have in a milk tea version. The blended drink was v smooth and the milk and vanilla taste was really brought out with every sip. BUT I feel that the mango popping pearls v extra 😂 Like can u not. I felt that it didn’t really go well with the drink & I don’t really like the super sweet syrupy taste from popping pearls – ok I don’t like popping pearls in general. Black chewy pearls any day plz. I wouldn’t buy it again la but it’s a good one-time experience drink. 👀: So white it’s like snowwww ⛄️ 📍: Singapore, Northpoint City (South Wing), B2-135 _____________________ UPDATE: Apparently the sugar level can be adjusted!! But nobody asked me what sugar level I wanted… so I guess if you order you ownself tell them you want less sugar ok 😂
A user called PaoPaoChoy, who apparently reviews bubble teas in Singapore, has made a review on the White Rabbit Candy Smoothie.
Seems like I was right about the sweetness, but apparently it’s adjustable so if you don’t have an immensely sweet tooth, be sure to ask for a lower sugar level.
Otherwise, it appears that it’s a pretty satisfying drink aside from the mango flavoured pearls, but you could probably request them to be removed with his knowledge beforehand.
If you want to make a trip down, they’re located at:
#B2-135 Northpoint City (South Wing), 769098 Singapore
