We’re blaming the Loco Loco shops and (their Instagram account) for creating the sweet and savory snack that is making us do crazy things.
The pop-up stalls — you can find their locations on their website if you’ll be in Singapore some time soon — were created by Crystal Cheng, a business student who was inspired to create the bite-sized treats after a trip to Spain.
