During a quick lunch trip to Golden Mile Complex, I saw these cute waxy-looking miniature fruit and vegetables being sold at a dessert stall. I was not sure these plastic looking thingies could be eaten but I was assured they were edible.

I don't know what the plastic-y outside was made of (not candle wax I hope), but the inside, which was stuffed with green bean paste, didn't taste too bad.

When I showed them to the Resident Bureaucrat, he demonstrated only mild interest in them. Then I bit into one of them and showed him the green bean filling inside, to which he exclaimed: "You mean these are not real fruit??"

If real fruit and vegetable came looking like they were made of PVC, I'd be very worried.

I've seen this in Bangkok. There's a huge variety and the packaging's really pretty! Never knew it's available in Singapore.
