Event Invitation: Sophisca Store Opening in Marina Square - Sweet treats with deceptive packaging


April is coming! What comes to your mind when you think of April? If the inner child in you is yanking to prank on someone this April's Fool Day then I might just have something up my sleeves waiting for you. Read on.

Sophisca, started in 1997, is the first specialty candy brand which originated from Taiwan. Find yourself in a heaven of candied fruits, soft bonbons, chocolates and more as you enter this candy land.

This store, which is their third store, is located in Marina Square Shopping Mall, beside the Pororo Park on level 2. The other 2 stores are at Changi Airport T3 and Ion Orchard respectively.

Sophisca means: Smile, Oishii, Personable, High Quality, International presence, Care and Artlessness. All products are designed and manufactured in the brand's very own factories in Nantou, Taiwan and are ISO 2002, HACCAP certified so you can be sure of their quality. They have established themselves as Taiwan's beloved and top confectionery retailer.

Just in time for April Fool's day, Sophisca has launched some interesting "tricking treats", along with their other classics. You can quote my name "Pearly Tan" at any of their stores during payment to get 10% off all Sophisca products. Promotion is valid till 20 May 2016.

Crayon Candy Sticks $9.90

Pass some of these "crayon" to your friends and trick them to draw on the canvas. Just joking! Don't be deceived by their packaging. These crayons are delectable candies which comes in 12 assorted flavors which comprises of the Honey Peach, Tropical Fruit, Mandarin Orange, Pomelo, Lemon, Green Apple, Mint, Blueberry, Grape, Strawberry, Chocolate and Yoghurt.

Brown Rice "Sushi bento" $11.90

Craving for some Japanese Sushi? Why not treat your friends to this box of 25 dainty chocolate brown rice crispy treats, which are disguised as a party tray of sushi. They are made from 100% natural brown rice smothered with Belgium-imported white chocolate. These are suitable for the health conscious as they are full of vitamins, minerals and dietary fiber!


Coloring Pens $17.90

These water color look-alike comes in 6 different colors which tasted like white chocolate, lemon chocolate, honeydew, strawberry, blue berry and milk chocolate respectively.

You can decorate your cookies and bakes with them. The talented Tracy decorated her cookie with it.

This is the final result after the artistic me did some touch up for her.

If you cannot decide what exactly to purchase, you can get these assorted sweets.

Or perhaps a smiley face to cheer up a friend who is feeling stress from work? A simple gesture like this means so much.

Check out the lollipop which I found on their special buys rack. Reward your child with this if he/she have done a something well this week. Simple rewards makes children happy and they don't cost too much.

If you love fruits and fancy an authentic Taiwanese packaging, check these sweets in their "fruits carton". These looks so adorable. I will keep the boxes if someone gift me these.

These sweets look interesting too! Anyone fancy some "shit" candy? If your colleague loves to pass additional work to you, you can consider buying these for them.

Steven Chow inspired medicated ointment look-alike candies seems also interesting. If your employee always goes on sick leave, perhaps you can give this to them.

Check out the novelty Sophie pads and first aid kit. These are all edible candies, don't worry! I think they really make good prank gifts if you are out to embarrasses your friends. You can pass them one during the time of the month if they forgot to bring one.

These makes good prank gifts for bridal games. I think one will feel so embarrassed receiving them.

For your money faced friends maybe?

These are one of my favorites because of their fancy packaging. They are chocolates and they have some packaging that are tailored to the Taiwan and others exclusive to the Singapore market.

Tracy and I trying to act out what the packaging says! I'm trying to kiss someone and she's blur like sotong haha. We had so much fun with this shot.

Candies in fancy bottles that makes great birthday gifts.

Why not get a little amulet for the friend who is going for their major exam?

You can give this to your husband who has been neglecting you. These might give him some obvious "hints".

I am loving this diva heels chocolate which looked so elegant, but I seriously doubt I'll eat, it looked too good.

More Lollipop from the store for your friends.
