Review: Not Your Typical CNY Goodies

Here comes the time of the year again.
The time that I've always been looking forward to annually, feeling sinful but yet not guilty. 
And I believe it's the favourite season for most foodies and mouth-itchy people too. 

I AM TALKING ABOUT CNY GOODIES, LAH!

Yes, and I am referring to egg rolls, shrimp rolls, pineapple tarts, etc. 

I remembered shopping for CNY goodies with my dad when I was a kid, and it was one of the most enjoyable activities ever.  

BUT ONE THING I HATED MOST WAS THE CROWD AND SQUEEZING. 
With everyone being so kiasu during the festive season, it's not easy to checkout the items in peace.

So imagine my surprise when CNY Delivery delivered some goodies to my doorstep..

It had me wondering.
Will the goodies really taste as good as the ones I purchase physically?
Only opening them and tasting them will tell.

AND THAT IS WHAT I AM GONNA DO!




Unwrapping my all-time favourite CNY snack, the ...

PINEAPPLE TARTS!!




To be honest, the smell of fresh pineapple tarts flowed immediately when I unscrewed the cap.

SOOOOOO GOLDEN!




I was squealing in delight as I held one in my hand before taking this photo. 
It felt crispy as the exterior crumbled easily.  (It's not the hard skin type and that's a bonus!)


As I placed one in my mouth, I stopped in my tracks. 
Not trying to be exaggerating, but I was taken aback by the texture of the tarts. The exterior was as crispy as I had expected, and the insides are really soft! I was overwhelmed by the rich pineapple flavour as it flooded my mouth. I somehow got carried away and ate a few more pieces before I had to stop myself. 
And honestly, I can say that they do SMELL and TASTE fresh, as though they are straight out from the oven.
I wouldn't mind ordering this again and again!!

Cashew Nut Cookies



I admit I may not be a cashew nut lover, but I do find it pleasing! (Interestingly enough!)



The cashew nut has fully blended in with the cookie, and I like it how the nut isn't that hard to chew on.



Hmmm..



Kinda' looks cute here, isn't it? Haha.
Although it doesn't have a filling like the pineapple tarts, but it tastes surprisingly nice and crunchy with a tinge of saltiness!
 I never thought I would like this, but I eventually did!

And the BONUS of it all?

The cashew nut cookies are made with PREMIUM butter and all NATURAL ingredients, hence this make them a healthier choice in CNY cookies.

Now here comes another exciting one...

OMG! The fragrance as I removed the cap....


Every single piece looking really crunchy.


I placed one to the test and I have to say it really DOES taste as crunchy as it looks. However, I have to admit that it is quite spicy (I am not sure if it is my own threshold that has somehow degraded or it is indeed that spicy)

BUT I still love the fresh taste nonetheless! The shrimps do not smell stale in any way. 
(I know there are some that are not fresh being sold in some places)

One warning about this though, it can be quite addictive. You will definitely NOT stop at just one piece. HAHAHA.


(Pssst, this is one of their BESTSELLERS! Do grab fast if you don't wanna miss it)

And here's the next... 

If you have always loved the taste of traditional love letters, then this is bound to catch your interest as well. The mixture of butter and pandan taste is a perfect combination for your taste buds. (I am a pandan lover, so this is a YES for me. Hahaha)



In my personal opinion, I would prefer this shape over the traditional egg roll shape that may crumble easily. 


Recommended? Yes!

 KUEH BANGKIT


Powdery white Kueh Bangkit that literally melts upon the touch of your tongue! 
I often feel full after eating a number of them, but this is another that makes it to the top of my list in terms of taste and crunchiness.


Purposely take this close-up to make you guys salivate. *evil*

All in all, the CNY goodies have passed the test - and the idea of not having to go out to shop but yet having them delivered to my doorstep thrills me.
Can you imagine technology has advanced to such a stage that all you need to do is to click some virtual buttons?

There are many other goodies as well that can be found on their official website - Since CNY is just around the corner, I guess it's high time to get your fingers clicking away! Whether it is for your family, loved ones or friends, I am sure you won't go wrong with the CNY products from Poon Confectionary.

Something about Poon Confectionary:
All their goodies are FRESHLY made before delivery. In other words, they are not stored! The ingredients that are used are wholesome and nutritious ones, so much that you won't really feel as 'sinful' after consumption. Hahaha.

In addition, they are HOMEMADE. So you can be assured of its quality - Mai play play!!

Still not convinced? Then head over to their website to find out more information (and place your orders). I
 am sure you will not be able to resist them....
