Is it just us or does the break between lunch and dinner always feel incredibly long? By 4pm, most of us would be itching for some munchies. Whether it’s a Kit Kat bar or a bag of Ruffles, snacks are a real lifesaver during the afternoon slump.
Most of us gravitate to the same few snacks in the supermarket. But in the vast ocean of tidbits laid out on in the aisles lie hidden gems that you may not have tried before. Well, that’s why we’re here.
We’ve rounded up 10 supermarket snacks in Singapore you’ve been missing out on. Ranging from wafer sticks to mochi, there’s something for everybody!
Singapore has gone through plenty of changes over the years and we have evolved from a humble little fishing village to a bustling economic hub. As we continue to progress and grow, it is inevitable that we leave behind certain parts of our culture and roots.
One area that has certainly gone through plenty of changes is our food scene. Over the years, with new food fads popping up all over the place, old school snacks and eats have been pushed aside and forgotten, especially by the new generation of youths. We bet that if you approach any teenager now and ask them if they want to follow you to get some bo bo cha cha, they would respond with a blank stare and a confused “huh?”.
For those of you who are sick of the salted egg and mala trends and believe that old is gold, here is our guide to 10 old-school places in Singapore that sell nostalgic foods from your childhood. For the people who don’t know anything about traditional Singapore food, educate yourselves by reading this list.
