Their signature Thunder Bomb contains popping candy and is topped with their homemade cotton candy and thunder candy. Another spectacular choice is the Hawaiian Beach, which is beautifully decorated to look just like a tropical beach, with dried coconut flakes as sand and blue syrup to portray the ocean and topped off with a little umbrella to highlight the beach vibe.

This Myanmar snack, also known as ohn no thar gu pyin, made with sago and coconut milk was trending recently thanks to Ambrosia’s attractive reinventing of the traditional treat. They upgraded the original coconut milk and sago recipe by adding various fruit to create new flavours. Now, as well as the original flavour, you can try strawberry, durian, pineapple, pandan and even butterfly pea flavour. What’s more, each flavour changes the color of the snack, meaning you can take home a rainbow box of treats. The butterfly pea flavour is a particularly striking shade of blue that’s perfect for an Insta-snap. Prices start from 2,000Ks.
