[CNY 2019] Poon Confectionary – Literally homemade Chinese New Year goodies (plus a giveaway!)

Chinese New Year is just over a week away. Have you decided on where or which brand of CNY goodies to purchase? I know some will simply go to the Chinese New Year Bazaar in Chinatown to grab discounted deals, while some will go for the big brands.

You may not have heard of Poon Confectionary but if you like the idea of homemade goodies, you may just want to consider Poon Confectionary. They are one of the very few brands selling homemade goodies from Malaysia. These goodies are literally homemade! That is, they are made in the homes of families from the same village with more than 20-30 years of baking, as opposed to making them in a commercial kitchen.

Very importantly, these Chinese New Year goodies do not contain any preservatives, added flavourings nor MSG. The pricing is also pretty attractive, plus there’s a 7% discount on the rack prices you see! If you shop around, you will know. Scroll down to see more pictures of the some of the goodies I tried as well as the pricing.

Cuttlefish Snack $17.90
Kueh Lapis $45
Love Letters $14.50
Golden Pillow Pineapple Tarts $16.90
Almond Cookies $15.50

The above are the goodies that I tried. I must say they do taste quite different from say Bengawan Solo goodies (which I am more familiar with). They are more artisan looking and I definitely like the idea that they do not contain any additives. I mean you’re already going to ingest so many calories, so any healthful help is much appreciated!

The love letters are a little inconsistent in colour, as compared to a more even brown. The taste though is pretty mild, and would please those who do not have a sweet tooth.

Pardon me for the extra number of kueh lapis pictures. I had great fun slicing them up and taking pictures of them with various decorations. They have a pretty mild flavour and does not leave a greasy taste even after several pieces.
