Pineapple tarts, bak kwa and the usual nuts are what you feed your guests.

Here are 7 snacks you can find in Singapore you reserve for yourself during Chinese New Year, because mmm hmmm.

1. Salted Egg Yolk Potato Chips


Salted Egg Yolk + Potato Chips = Genius.

The Golden Duck’s brand of gourmet salted egg snacks combines the most sinful ingredients together to make your eyes roll into the back of your head.

Find out more here. Each packet costs S$7.


2. Liu Sha Custard Donuts (Salted Egg Yolk Donuts)


Another salted egg snack, but this time, they are fluffy and oozing with goodness.

This is something you’ll neither see nor taste any day. Available from May May.


3. Dark chocolate Kit Kat


The less sweet and darker version of Kit Kat. For Kit Kat and chocolate lovers. A rare find.

Available from Meidi-ya at Liang Court.


3. The Sng Bao Society

Sng bao is Hokkien for “ice packets”, which traditionally contained frozen crushed flaky iced syrup.

The updated version contains Choya Lemonade and Bailey’s Green Tea.

4. Momolato


This is like sng bao but icicles. And pretty intense.


5. Yam Paste Nian Gao Tart


Now here’s a twist you didn’t see coming: Traditional nian gao filling in crusty tarts.

Available from The Fullterton Hotel.


6. Green Pea Cookie


Green pea on its own, is okay. Cookies on its own, is also okay.

But together? Now, now.

Available at ION ORCHARD, B4 (Near Muji) from Feb 5 to 6 (Fri & Sat).


7. Lemongrass Soda Pop


Not the usual fizzy drink with standard flavours.

Here are the places you can find Lime & Thyme and Apple & Ginger soda drinks.
