10 Next-level Snacks You May Not Have Heard Of And Where To Buy Them

16th June 2017

Next-level snacks from familiar brands


From Milo and Horlicks to Tao Kae Noi seaweed and Snickers bars, these popular products have made their way into our hearts and our kitchens. But sometimes, it’d be nice to experience the same child-like joy of discovering a new product that has the potential to become the next big thing. Here are 10 next-level snacks from familiar brands that you probably didn’t know existed, but could be a new staple in your life.


1. Milo Cubes

If you’re a Milo addict who just can’t get enough of this chocolatey, powdery goodness, get your hands on a bag of Energy Cubes. These babies are basically compressed cubes of Milo powder that you can eat like candy. So now you’ll get to proudly eat your favourite drink instead of sneakily shoving a spoonful of powder into your mouth. Just make sure you don’t finish the entire bag in one seating!

2. Ovomaltine Spread

Move over peanut butter and hazelnut spreads, there’s a new force to be reckoned with: Ovomaltine Crunchy Cream. The name may sound oxymoronic, but “crunchy cream” describes its consistency perfectly. There are little bits of Ovomaltine granules running through the smooth, chocolate cream. These add crunch to the spread and give it a more interesting texture. Great on bread and for eating right out of the jar.

I grew up loving plain ol’ digestive biscuits and was stoked when the chocolate-coated versions hit the shelves. Now, McVitie’s has come up with Digestives Nibbles. These bite-sized goodies are made by coating crunchy biscuit balls in a thick layer of smooth chocolate. Though milk chocolate is a crowd-favourite, they also have other flavours such as caramel and Hobnobs, which is another type of McVitie’s biscuit made with rolled oats.

Nando’s delicious sauces seem to make everything you slather them on way better. So if you’re suddenly hit by a wave of peri peri cravings, grab a bag of Nando’s Peri Peri Potato Chips ($4.35). These ridged potato chips are well-seasoned with African bird’s eye chillies and could possibly be your new go-to snack. Just like their in-house sauces, you can choose your level of spiciness as these chips come in the original chicken flavour as well as a sizzling hot version.

6. Mentos Chocolate

Though the original mint-flavoured Mentos candies are great to chew on, the choices on flavour gets boring after a while. However, they’ve stepped up their game and created Mentos Choco ($5.50). These updated candies are more decadent and feature richer, more luxurious flavours such as chocolate and caramel. Each candy comes with a smooth filling while its outer layer still takes on the chewy texture similar to regular Mentos sweets.

7. Tabasco Chocolates

We’ve all heard of the unique chilli-chocolate combination, but not many know about Tabasco chocolate. These wedges of Tabasco Spicy Chocolate ($9.95) are a balanced blend of bittersweet flavours and heat from the famous hot pepper sauce. So whether you’re an adventurous foodie, or even if you’re just curious, these wedges are definitely worth a try.

If you love salty snacks, you’ve probably gone through bags of Tao Kae Noi seaweed like I have.  Now, this popular brand has incorporated their addictive snacks into instant ramen. Each pack of Tao Kae Noi Ramen ($4.90) comes with two pieces of seaweed that can be used to garnish your noodles. The original flavour is jam-packed with umami, and those who enjoy spicy food can get the tom yum version!

Get it from:

Tao Kae Noi Land
Address: 3 Temasek Boulevard, #03-362/363, Suntec City Mall, Singapore 038983
Opening hours: Daily 11am to 9pm


9. Snickers Protein Shake


next-level snacks - snickers drink

Working out doesn’t have to be as painful with these chocolate bar protein shakes. Though counting on a bottle of Snickers Protein Shake ($3.90) to get #swol might be highly questionable, getting it is worth for those who treat their taste buds as kings. If getting jacked isn’t in your to-do list, opt for a Galaxy Chocolate Shake ($3.20), which is a richer, more satisfying version of average chocolate milk.

10. Horlicks Foodles

We all know Horlicks as the instant malted milk drink, but what you may not know is that you can buy Horlicks instant noodles as well. There are two flavours of Foodles ($2.50) for you to choose from: Ala Masala and Crazy Curry. Both versions do not contain MSG or added preservatives; the former is marketed as a multi-grain product while the latter has a slightly spicier kick to it.
