10 Updated CNY Snacks In 2018 Including Nutella Kueh Lapis And Ondeh Ondeh Cookies

30th January 2018

Updated CNY snacks for Chinese New Year 2018

For most people, the endless supply of bak kwa, ang bao and the opportunity to buy new clothes make Chinese New Year their favourite festival of the year. For some, CNY is nothing but awkward family gatherings filled with even more awkward questions from kaypoh relatives. No matter which category you fall into, one thing that no one can hate when it comes to CNY would be the snacks. Whether CNY is your thing or not, you can still make this year’s a memorable one with these IG-worthy and updated CNY snacks. From Nutella kueh lapis to tutu kueh cookies, here are 10 places where you can stock up on these updated CNY snacks!

1. Ollella

updated cny snacks - OLLELLA OLLELLA

It is hard for anyone to not love kueh lapis but if you want to further impress your family and friends, try Ollella’s Salted Egg Yolk Kue Lapis (from $24 for 350g) or Nutella Kue Lapis (from $24 for 350g). The former hides chunky bits of salted egg yolk while the latter is made of layers of Nutella sandwiched between the cake! My favourite from Ollella is their Almond Cookies ($6 for 10, $20 for 25 pieces). These vegan and dairy-free cookies are made using almonds and canola oil. Beside almond cookies, they also have Pineapple Pillows ($8 for eight, $22 for 25 pieces) and Butter Cookies ($6 for 12, $18 for 30 pieces)
