Singaporeans are queueing for a new sweet treat from Taiwan - refreshing grass jelly and shaved ice desserts.

The cold and slightly sweet dessert is topped with ingredients such as chewy taro and sweet potato balls as well as bubble tea pearls. Other toppings include kidney beans, nata de coco, roasted peanuts and lotus seeds.

At least four outlets and chains are selling these desserts, one of which is popular Taiwanese grass jelly dessert chain BlackBall.

The others are Fluffy Dessert at Tanjong Pagar Road, Beans Talk at Toa Payoh and Bing Bian, with two outlets at Millenia Walk and Peace Centre.
