If you're looking for snacks that double up as a cute display, ChangHoSek's line-up might suit you.

For Chinese New Year 2022, the bakery's range of cookies, bakes and crisps are presented in the form of mahjong tile combinations.

Choose from six sets, or if you can't decide, there's the 13 Wonders Snack Pack.

The items are also available for individual purchases.

Here's a look at some of the sets:

1. Big Four Blessings (S$72.80)

This set features traditional love letters, pandan love letters, arrowhead chips, and salted egg chips.

The four "winds" are reflected on the plastic containers.

2. Longevity Trio (S$60.80)

The 999 bundle consists of butter cookies, almond cookies, and gourmet spiced nuts (macadamia, pecan, walnuts, cashew, and almonds).

The ninth tile of each suit is used here as a Chinese pun on "jiu", which means both the number nine and "for a long time" (i.e. longevity).

3. Scholars Trio (S$52.80)

The trio is made up of Green Pea Cookies, Prawn Rolls, and Kueh Bangkit.

The tiles denote a rare winning combination in mahjong, the Da San Yuan.

4. 13 Wonders Chocolate Set (S$34.80)

These are chocolate tiles made of almond gianduja (chocolate spread with hazelnut paste) with wafer crisp, coated in white chocolate.

The 13 Wonders is another rare winning hand that immediately grants the player maximum fold (man tai).

5. 13 Wonders Set (S$238.80)
