Singapore's beloved dessert – the ice kachang has evolved into many versions over the years, from the ice balls coated with coloured sugar coated syrups in the 1950s and 1960s to the modern ice kachang that comes with red bean (kachang), attap chee (palm seed), sweet corn, cubes of jelly and other novelty toppings such as durian and mango.

The famous Annie’s Peanut Ice Kachang has charmed and made many ice kachang fans go nuts over their peanut ice kachang for years. The distinctive part of the ice kachang here is the well-crushed peanut, showered all over the colorful mound of ice, which is flavoured with syrup, red bean and sweet corn. They are also very generous with their serving. If peanut is not your cup of tea, you can top up an additional 50 cents and go for their mango or durian ice kachang.
