We’ve come up with a list of seven of the best CNY snacks to buy in 2022, sorted by popular favourites, nicest packaging and affordable pricing.

Popular favourites

1) Pineapple Tarts from Ding Bakery (S$18.90)

Ding Bakery’s pineapple tarts are well known for their decadence - their crumbly butter outer crust filled with a generous ball of pineapple paste is so good that you won’t want to stop at just one.

According to Mdm Ling Bakery, in 2021, many of their popular flavours were sold out two weeks before Chinese New Year. You might want to consider placing your orders in advance, to avoid disappointment.

The offer is however limited to the first 250 users, who may quote MLBMSCNY2022 to redeem. Time is running!
