As kids, most of us would get excited when passing by the candy section of the grocery store. Let me tell you this, your inner child will be screaming when you see Bilimbi at Wisma Atria and Bugis Junction. If candy land was real, this would be it.
The candy stores opened recently in April 2023 – so you might have seen this place making an appearance on social media sites such as TikTok and Lemon8. This is your sign to pay a visit. But first, here’s everything you can expect at Bilimbi.
Bilimbi sure is healing our inner child – first candy, now pirates?

The first thing that’ll catch your eye when you walk into Bilimbi would be a pirate ship shelf right in the middle of the store. Arranged neatly on top of it is a colourful array of candies for you to pick and choose from. There are also tons of barrels and treasure chests. But instead of gold and jewellery, they’re filled with gems of a different kind: candy.

The pirate ship theme extends to the walls – with giant octopus tentacles sticking out of them. We think it’d make a pretty good photo for the ‘Gram.

Bilimbi has a similar concept as Mini Toons outlets back in the day, which had sections where you could scoop sweets and gummies of your choice. The prices at Bilimbi are slightly higher at $10/100g. But since the candy is flown in from countries such as Spain and Belgium, they’re not something you can find easily on supermarket shelves.

The best part about the pricing system is that you have the flexibility to choose between having a specific mix of candies or trying a little bit of everything.

In fact, there are over 300 types of candy in all shapes, sizes, and colours. You can find all-time favourites such as gummies, marshmallows – as well as more unique soufflés.

Aside from gummies and bags of chocolate, Bilimbi also sells adorable lollipops from $5. We think they’d make the perfect gifts for kids, teachers, and even your friends. Otherwise, there’s really no need for a special occasion when it comes to giving your loved ones sweet treats.
Bilimbi is a must-visit for candy lovers, especially with 2 locations at Wisma Atria and Bugis Junction. There are over 300 sweets and gummies for you to choose from – and a flexible pricing system to boot.
Not to mention, scooping candy up into a paper bag feels incredibly nostalgic – whether you’re looking to try new sweets yourself or pick up a couple of your friends’ all-time favourites to cheer them up.
