I’ve rounded up these delicious small bites that Singaporeans commonly snack on during the festive seasons.
Best Chinese New Year Snacks

Most Singaporeans and Malaysians grew up eating the White Rabbit milk-flavored candy. Carefully peel open the White Rabbit candy wrapper and pop the chewy goodness into your mouth. The transparent rice paper is edible and what makes the candy so interesting.

But why not kick start your day with a handful of healthy snacks? The apple and cinnamon add an extra texture and unique flavors to the classic whole grain oats granola.
Ferrero Rocher took the world by storm with its refined packaging and ground-breaking advertising campaigns since 1982. When was the last time you ate a Rocher? Can you still recall that creamy chocolate filling, crunchy wafer and the delicious hazelnut in the center? Better grab one now!
