What Chinese New Year Snacks Beckon in the Year of the Ox?

In anticipation that we'll be caught at residence more often than not attributable to strict SOPs throughout Chinese language New 12 months (CNY) reminiscent of no interstate or inter district journey, I made positive I had an ample provide of CNY snacks to get us (extra like him) by means of this era.

I am truly not a routine snacker (like my different half) however will possibly eat a wee bit extra this yr coz what else is there to do at residence apart from be a sofa potato...and one will want snacks for that, proper?...hee..hee! ;)  So, what snacks did I purchase, make or obtain?

Properly, to begin with, I had to go surfing to take a look at what I might get as items as a substitute of bodily procuring throughout MCO 2.0, so a poke poke right here and a tekan tekan there....and I ended up with these, one thing totally different together with my standard items of snacks.

I obtained this Lay's CNY Present Field (RM55) due to the beautiful packaging and the number of gadgets which is good as a present to a household that enjoys consuming chips.

Here is a peek inside....I did not even know what flavours I would be getting after I ordered it because the descriptions had been all written in Chinese language! >_lah, chips are chips....any flavour will do.  I solely knew the flavours after I opened the field (because the precise packs had English descriptions).

The present pack included 20 particular person packs of chips starting from 15g - 40g for a complete of 588g.

2 x Cheetos (Rooster & Beef Flavour)

2 x Potato Chips (American Basic Flavour)

2 x Potato Chips (Cucumber & Italian Pink Meat Flavour)

2 x Crinkle Lower Chips (Grilled Pork Flavour)

2 x Crinkle Lower Chips (Grilled Squid Flavour)

2 x Crinkle Lower Chips (Roasted Rooster Wing Flavour)

2 x Yam Crisps (Cucumber & Tomato Flavour)

6 x Crispy Fries (Seaweed, Tomato & Authentic Flavours)

I additionally purchased this Ban Heang Bundle Present Set (RM43) from PenangToGo, once more as a result of I used to be drawn to the great packaging however extra so for the apt CNY needs for a recipient who prefers blessings than snacks.

The present pack contained:

(The Descents of Blessing) 2 x Coconut Crisps (2 pcs/pkt)

(Fortunate star shines on excessive) three x Almond Slice - Authentic, Salted Egg & Cheese (2 pcs/pkt)

(Fortune & Prosperity) three x Crisps - Salted Fish with Seaweed, Cheese &Salted Egg (2 pcs/pkt)

(Could everything be as you want) 2 x Cookies - Butter & Almond (2 pcs/pkt)

(Concord & Pleasure) four x Marshmallow Bites - Fruity & Matcha (2 pcs/pkt)

Maybe this may appear a little bit dear (and never so value it) for the small quantity of 28 pcs of snacks (individually wrapped in twos) however you possibly can't deny the truth that the set (and desires) makes for a reasonably applicable CNY present.

Now that I've gotten some items taken care of, how about some snacks for mua?  One thing for my very own consumption.  I am not an enormous fan of cookies (neither is my partner), so I needn't bake any.  The snacks my household likes are the fried and crispy sort.  And why trouble to slave within the kitchen when you possibly can simply purchase all of your favourites.  The one snack I am bothered to make (yearly with out fail) are prawn crackers and that is as a result of I've not seen anybody promote these sort of crackers.

I make these yearly as giveaways (that are at all times effectively acquired by my supposed recipients, in truth they're by no means sufficient) and this yr I needed to double up on the portion (RM30 for 600g of raw crackers) as I gave extra away (the above is from one portion) + we began snacking on them effectively earlier than CNY...in truth, proper after they had been fried! ;P

Moreover crispy keropok, I additionally like these crab sticks (surimi) snacks (RM16).  I used to suppose these had been simply crab sticks shredded, tossed in cornstarch and deep-fried...and they need to all principally style the identical, proper?  Fallacious.  I realised there was a distinction in style after I purchased one this yr (from a espresso store I've by no means purchased from earlier than) that turned out very nice after I ate it concurrently with one I acquired from my sister-in-law.  There was certainly a distinction.  This one, although crispy as effectively, was barely more durable to the chew.  I even detected some gentle fishiness.

The one I purchased was tremendous crispy and barely extra savoury.  You guess I will be searching for it once more subsequent yr (effectively, at the very least it had a phone quantity on it).  I higher maintain on to the container then! :D

I purchased this kuih kapit or skinny crispy love letters (RM18) simply due to the best way it was folded into a singular form (not usually seen).  They're normally folded into quarters (fan-shaped) or rolled-up (like a cigar).  This one was cone-shaped with sesame seeds and never too candy.

Then I chanced upon these caramel popcorn (RM8) on the mini moist market close to my residence...and shortly realised a whole lot of distributors had been promoting these this yr (however theirs had been retailing for RM12).  My partner completed one can in two sittings, so  I instantly returned to my moist market and obtained one other four cans (two to present away).  With popcorn in a single hand, now all that is wanted is an effective film. ^_~

These are chocolate-flavoured meringue cookies that is predominantly made with simply egg whites and icing sugar (+ cocoa for flavouring).  These ones are additional studded with tiny chocolate chips.  My husband says they appear to be Hershey's kisses (most likely that is the place the inspiration got here from).  They're tremendous mild, ethereal and crispy....it is like consuming air!  These two snacks are for the sweet-toothed individual in my household (which is not me!).

I acquired a present of prawn muruku.  I've eaten muruku however do not suppose I've eaten a prawn-flavoured one earlier than (now there's even a salted egg yolk model).  I am unable to say I detected a lot prawn flavour although + this one was lacking the standard flavour of Indian spices like a correct muruku must be.

This yr, my neighbour made and gifted me her pineapple rolls once more.  The pastry is, after all, contemporary tasting and the pineapple jam wasn't as tart, an enchancment from those she gave me two years in the past.  Like all cooking (which I can vouch for), or baking, it will get higher with observe.

Due to the MCO, I did not exit to the mall to get my standard provide of bak kwa this yr.  So, I made a decision to get a pack from one in all my frequented roasted meat stall to strive (I've seen them promoting for years however by no means bothered to strive coz then I had my favorite model, Oloiya to depend on.  Oloiya's costs this yr is about the identical as final yr, RM58 for 500g.  This one I obtained was RM45 just for 500g.  Style sensible, nothing can beat my favorite.  That is simply an interim measure till I am reunited with my Oloiya...lol.

I additionally tried my hand at assembling my very own items.  All you want is to get a few small containers and fill them up with totally different CNY snacks and make it fairly with a ribbon.  This fashion your recipients will get a wide range of snacks as a substitute of (say) only one container of the identical factor (+ it can be extra value saving in the event you're on a good price range or have many recipients).

I acquired a pair cans of abalone too, not fairly a snack, but it surely'll turn out to be useful for my braised mushrooms, abalone and dried scallops dish that I intend to cook dinner (and had already cooked) for the CNY reunion dinner.

I am going to use them along with these dried mushrooms (a product of Japan) which my neighbour gave me to make my braised mushroom dish.  Glad to report that they style much like Chinese language dried mushrooms (solely higher high quality, thicker and tastier).

Now that is not a whole lot of snacks, is it?  Hee....hee...hee.  No matter snacks you are munching on on this Ox-picious new yr.....get pleasure from......and munch on! ^_~
