KitKat’s known for their huge range of flavors ranging from sake to pudding and now Singapore’s getting its own set of limited edition flavors! Be prepared for Chilli Crab, Salted Egg Yolk, Chendol, Durian, Milk Tea Rosé, and even a vague-sounding Kopitiam Breakfast-flavored KitKat which looks like it can be anything from kaya toast, egg or coffee according to the image. Head down to the pop-up KitKat Chocolatory at VivoCity to get these flavors and also get a first peek at the new KitKat Ruby Chocolate that is made from pink cocoa beans.

In shades of bubble tea and blue, this new bubble tea store is the next hipster drink store to join the stretches of Haji Lane. While Little Po has your usual Earl Grey teas and brown sugar pearls, you might want to be a little more adventurous with your options like smoky lapsang souchong and spiced masala chai. You can also choose up to three toppings from their varied selection which includes freshly made boba, mashed yam and egg pudding. The coffee selection is also very adventurous, with avocado “chocoffee”, Oreo cheesy coffee and banana mocha. For creamy goodness, get their smoothies – we’ve got our eye on the milky yam drink. If you work within 2km of Haji Lane, Little Po will also deliver their teas and coffees straight to your doorstep.
