Agar agar

Size comparison.

When I was in kindergarten, I like to eat red agar-agar (jelly from algae) that looked like the above with rose syrup flavour so when I saw this, I was all set to relive my youth but it was not meant to be, the red agar agar above has pandan flavour instead of rose syrup but the texture is similar, firm but not hard but is a bit too sweet for me. Costs MYR 1.50 nett. My friend will buy it for me to give me a treat whenever she goes to the eatery in the morning for breakfast.


  1. Yes, this was my favourite during my young days.

  2. Ooooh, you just reminded me that my boys love jellies. I think I will have to make some for them soon.

  3. I ate them when I was a kid too. I had no idea they were rose flavoured as i only thought it was red with sugar! I think I was being conned.

    1. Maybe the ones you ate when young did not have any specific flavours except for sweetness only.
