One of the many things that gets Singaporeans riled up is the price of food at coffee shops and centres. A huge debate ensued among netizens over the price of a large cup of iced milo that cost $2.70.

Earlier this week, netizen Raymond Seow took to Facebook to gripe about how the food he bought is “Damn expensive nowadays!!!”

Raymond’s post was shred to a public Facebook group titled, ‘Singapore Taxi Driver’.

At the coffee shop at Block 820 Tampines Street 51, he bought a cup of iced milo for $2.70, and a plate of chicken biryani for $6.50.

According to reporters who visited the stall, the stall assistant said that customers who order iced Milo are usually served the upsized version, also known as ‘Milo Gajah’, or ‘Milo Elephant’.

Raymond’s post sparked a huge debate online amongst netizens, who said that $2.70 for the cup of iced Milo was an exorbitant price.

Many also were worried that if a sugar tax was implemented in future, then that might cause prices to go up even further.

The cup of iced Milo was even compared to drinking Bird’s Nest, a drink typically considered to be a delicacy.
