Saw this innocent-looking made-in-Singapore snack in the office studio the other day. Now I'm not a big fan of ginger, don't even touch the ones that come with the sushi. Anyway, the pack says or shows that ginger pieces are gonna be sugar-coated, and I just can't resist anything that's sugar-coated (you can see where this is heading). Yup, I figured anything that's coated with sugar can't be that bad.
Man o man, that little piece bout the size of a 20 cent coin, nearly killed me. Imagine a raw piece of pure ginger coated with a thin layer of sugar ... the sugar melted away in a second and guess what was left in my mouth.
