If there’s a store that fulfills the “sundae and cherry on top” principle, it’s Sophisca. The specialty candy brand, which hails from Taiwan and was founded almost 20 years ago, recently opened a new outlet in Marina Square.
Known for its yummy taste (the sundae) and cheeky packaging (the cherry on top), Sophisca sells a wide variety of sweets and chocolates that would without a doubt have any customer spoilt for choice. Dubbed as “a sweet place for sweethearts”, it’s a paradise for candy fans and spunky pranksters.
Imagine giving these sanitary pads (they’re marshmallows) as a birthday gift. Your giftee will think you’re a) a cheapskate, b) a weirdo, c) as funny as Jerry Seinfeld, or d) all of the above.
We wonder if anyone has attempted to roast these marshmallow sanitary pads during a campfire outing. It would be a sight to behold.
Here you have a first aid kit filled with different types of confectioneries. And yes, the plaster next to it is a candy, too!
Aside from the unconventional candies that make you do a double take, Sophisca also sells uniquely Singapore chocolates adorned with famous Singlish phrases.
A great gift for foreign friends, we’d say!
The edible colouring sets are a popular choice among kids. Time to get those creative juices flowing!
Say what?! A medicated oil candy! (And yes, that’s a fake condom sweet too, yikes!)
Sophi’s Choco, a classic favourite among its customers.
Peng! Mahjong fanatics need to have this in their collection.
But the craziest one is this.
These candy condoms either make you blush or roar with laughter. The team behind Sophisca sure are a witty — not to mention kinky — bunch.
At Sophisca, you don’t just buy the candies. You buy the novelty, too.
Sophisca may be in the business for almost two decades, but you have to hand it to the company for constantly staying ahead of its competitors. Their new, fresh, out-of-the-box ideas are always a source of amazement. We can’t wait to see what they have in stores for us!
