In this special weekly series by Boxgreen, we bring you our ratings (nutritionist approved) of a couple of local Singaporean yums.
Here is this week’s #BGSOTW (BoxGreen’s Snack of the Week)…

OUR RATING: SO – SO!
Oh, it’s so-so?
It earned the SO-SO rating rather than MEH because there’s still some protein (4g) in it. OK, I know I know, it’s soooo yummy, but if you have it all the time, my goodness the cholesterol and saturated fat are going to be swimming in your body! Have it as a well-deserved dessert or TGIF (but I don’t mean every Friday)!
