Best CNY Goodies in Singapore
In every Southeast Asian country, expect that you’d see a kueh in every gathering. We just love snacking in those little dessert bites! So of course, the Glory Kueh Bankit is present in this list. Basically, Kueh Bankits are light and delicate cookies made with tapioca and coconut cream. They are so light that they would actually melt in your mouth! That said, we are not so surprised why both children and adults cannot seem to get enough of these cookies.
Even if you are buying your kueh at Amazon, rest assured that every cookie is handmade and fresh. Bonus is that the cookies come in a cute little reusable jar. But beware, a single whiff of the package would give you large amounts of coconut fragrance so get ready to snack on the cookies all at once!
Why buy this:
- Handmade, with no preservatives added
- Famous Chinese New Year snack
- Full of Coconut fragrance
- Light and decadent

Don’t worry if you’re not a baker; it’s easy to find delicious cookies for the new year. Royal Dansk is one of our favourite brands for butter cookies because it has been satisfying cookie lovers with genuine Danish butter cookies imported from Denmark. Therefore, all of the classic buttery and crisp cookies they sell have an entirely butter flavour, though some also have a flavourful coconut or vanilla twist. In addition, we like how each bite of these cookies delivers just the right amount of buttery crispiness and melt-in-your-mouth softness, which makes them an excellent choice for any occasion. The best part is that the cookies are made with non-GMO ingredients and contain no artificial ingredients, preservatives, or colours, so they stay true to Danish baking traditions.
Why buy this:
- Perfect balance of crispness and melt-in-your-mouth goodness
- Uses non-GMO ingredients
- Perfect for gifting

If you prefer to snack on something salty for CNY, then Shermay’s Singapore Fine Food Small Prawn Cracker is the best option for you. This is also a great snack in case you and your friends decide to open those liquor bottles catching dust in your home. Not only are these prawn crackers perfectly tasty, but they melt in your mouth as well after you have munched on their crunchy surfaces.
Why buy this:
- No artificial flavouring or colouring
- Gluten- and MSG-free
- Resealable packaging

The Hup Chong Crispy Pork Floss is another salty snack that you should try. It’s no secret that the Chinese love pork floss, but a crispy version is something a little different. This Crispy Pork Floss is made entirely in Singapore with natural ingredients, and we must say that the airy crunchy bits of tasty porky goodness explodes with flavour with each bite. It also has a slightly sweet note that complements congee, bread, salads, and many other Chinese favourites! Even so, the perfect balance of sweetness and saltiness makes it delicious on its own. Also, it comes in a set of two, so you can give one to someone you love and one to yourself!
Why buy this:
- Proudly crafted in Singapore
- Made using 100% natural ingredients
- Zero added MSG, artificial flavouring or colouring and preservatives
- Great for gifting

During CNY celebrations in Singapore, pineapple tarts are a popular treat. It’s hard to blame people, though. Pineapples are not only delicious, but they are also thought to bring “good fortune” by the Hokkiens. Gin Thye is one of the best places in Singapore to get your pineapple tart fix. Their pineapple tarts come in different shapes, like flowers and balls. There are also a number of variants of the product that have been infused with extra flavourings such as cheese, cranberries, and white rabbit. Even better, we think this is also ideal for gifting because of the lovely packaging.
Why buy this:
- Comes in different shapes and flavours
- Good reviews on Shopee
