Chinese New Year comes with an exuberant mix of colours, sounds and taste. To help you start your CNY celebrations with some shopping therapy, here are some of the CNY collections that are definitely worth your angpow money.
1. Goodies from Taiwan 7-Eleven
Prepare to put on a few kilograms this CNY because we will be introducing amazing CNY goodies! Stored in a Hello Kitty metal tin, these egg rolls may become your favourite lunar new year snack. Made of healthy ingredients like eggs, wheat, vegetable oil, sugar, sesame and salt, Serena Foods Egg Rolls will keep you reaching into the tin for your second serving!
Be sure to keep the limited edition Hello Kitty tin after gobbling down every bit of egg roll.
Besides the adorable metal tins, you can also choose to purchase your egg rolls in the Hello Kitty shaped bag at NTD$390.
Not a fan of egg rolls? Don’t worry, you won’t be missing out much with equally attractive 7-11’s cookie tins! You can enjoy butter cookies available in Mickey, Hello Kitty, Tsum Tsum, Rilakkuma, Toy Story and Pooh designs. Be sure to keep them away from the kids if you don’t want your precious cookies to be gobbled down in a few minutes 😉
2. Kuai Che Rou Gan from Taiwan
If you have not heard of Kuai Che’s Bak kwa, you have not lived life to the fullest. The Taiwanese brand is most well known for its Almond crispy pork paper. Yes, you heard that right, almond and paper! Kuai Che has completely revolutionised Bak kwa, making them into extremely thin paper-like slices. Your guests would be so busy eating they won’t have time to bother you with their nosy and invasive questions! 🙂
3. Kingsley Desserts & Gourmet 2017 CNY collection (Hong Kong)
Taiwanese brand Kingsley Desserts & Gourmet has released their own Little Twin Stars Collection in preparation for the CNY festivities. Consisting of 2 layers, the first layer brings a wave of nostalgia with our childhood favourite, chocolate gold coins! The box also contains a popular street snack in Hong Kong – mini dumplings!
4. Starbucks Hong Kong CNY Series
One thing is for sure, this year’s CNY series look nothing like the classic Starbucks mugs! The Year of the Rooster mug is clearly made for the unabashed red and vibrant Lunar New Year festival; Decorated with eye-catching Golden Roosters, and with auspicious red and gold colours, these Starbucks HK mugs will be a great way to welcome the new year.
5. Starbucks Taiwan CNY edition
Starbucks Taiwan has not let us down either. It has cuter additions of Rooster themed mugs this lunar new year! It seems like we are all going to have a hard time deciding between the New Year’s Eve Garden Rooster mug and Golden Rooster Golden Egg Cup Set!
