Nasty Cookie – Actually quite good and not as sweet as it looks!

I wanted to do a shoutout on Nasty Cookie simply because I tried it recently and enjoyed it. Nasty Cookie has been around since October 2018, and opened their first brick-and-mortar store at Funan SG last year. You might seem to have heard about it recently, and that’s because they just opened their flagship outlet just outside Kaki Bukit MRT Station.

So what is Nasty Cookie. Okay aside from jokes on their name, they offer New York inspired (Levain cookie) gourmet jumbo cookies. Imagine the size of Mrs Field’s cookies but on steroids, ie puffed up and not flat. They claim that they are the only ones offering such NY inspired cookies, but given the proliferation of home bakers after the Circuit Breaker, I know I’ve seen many similar cookies.

[CNY 2014] BreadTalk Horseperity Cookies & Pineapple Tarts

Next up, my review of BreadTalk’s Hosperity Cookie Set! The kind people from BreadTalk presented to me their unique 3-in-1 Horseperity Cookies Set ($33) that includes an assortment of almond cookies, sweet potato sesame cookies and prawn samosa. They also threw in a box of tasty Pineapple Tarts ($22) for an extra dose of good luck!

BreadTalk Horseperity Cookies Set ($33) (5)

The 3-in-1 cookie set is really very festive looking, to the extent that they have used the boxes as decorations at their BreadTalk store! When I went to the BreadTalk at Bedok Mall to collect my loot, I totally walked past their CNY cookie display on the shelves because I had assumed that the shelves had been decked up in their CNY finery. It was only upon closer inspection that I realised that the boxes were the boxes from the Hosperity cookie set.

[CNY 2014] PrimaDeli Chinese New Year Cookies

Chinese New Year is in less than 2 weeks! Have you bought all your new clothes and Chinese New Year goodies yet? Fret not if you haven’t bought those Chinese New Year goodies because I’ll be reviewing several brands and giving you the low down on the best CNY cookies to buy.

Prima Deli Cheese Pineapple Tarts and Pillow Pineapple Tarts (2)

First up for review are PrimaDeli’s range of Chinese New Year cookies. The PrimaDéli Chinese New Year collection 2014 features a treasure trove of good ol’ traditional treats ranging from everyone’s favourite pineapple tarts, to love letters and melt-in-your-mouth Kueh Bangkit. In addition to these delights, there are also new unique treats with a twist such as the Cheese Pineapple Tarts, Orange Butter Cake and three new cookies – Sesame, Walnut Sugee and Pistachio Cookies.

Cheese Pineapple Tarts and Pillow Pineapple Tarts $16.80 / tin

Pineapple tarts are always a perennial favourite for me, and it just ain’t Chinese New Year if I don’t eat a ton of these goodies. I like my pineapple tarts bursting with sweet pineapple. You will like the pillow pineapple tarts if you have a sweet tooth like me. Couldn’t resist stealing a few of those mouthwatering pillows before I could take a picture. The cheese pineapple tarts are for those who are looking for a more mellow and less sweet pineapple tart. The parmesan cheese flavour is rather light, you might miss it if you’re not paying attention, but it does lend a touch of savouriness / nuttiness to the pineapple filling.

And at the end of all the feasting, you get to reuse the pretty containers to keep some other food stuff! Sure looks like the Chinese New Year cookie boxes are going the way of the Mooncake boxes. Mark my words, you heard it here on 365days2play first!

Marks & Spencer British Goodies

I don’t know about you, but I have a soft spot for all things British! I love the country, I love London, I love the quaint countryside, I love the British cooks  (Nigella, Jamie, Hugh Fearnley). Three times I’ve been to the UK for holidays, and I still yearn to go back again. I have also been to New Zealand 3 times, and next week will be the 4th trip. But I always tell the kiwi Partner that the grass in England is greener. Serious!

Did you manage to catch the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee on TV? My parents were glued to the TV even until past midnight! Such is the fascination for the British Royal family, who aren’t related to us in any way! The Partner likes to tell me that he has royal blood, but what’s the use of that if he can’t show me my room in the castle?

Anyway, one place in Singapore you can indulge in a bit of British is at Marks & Spencer. I love it when it’s Easter and Christmas. All their goodies are packaged so nicely and always so festive looking. This time round, thanks to the Queen’s Jubilee and the upcoming London Olympics, Marks & Spencer has also churned out quite a few new British treats.

Marks & Spencer - Family Biscuits for Tea (2)

These Family biscuits for tea were going at $37. My GUY friend was lusting over these tins for the last 1 week and he finally succumbed to buying one today. It certainly is a pretty tin but is it worth $37?

Marks & Spencer - Milk Chocolate Rosette Lollipops

Something cheaper if you still want to buy something. Milk Chocolate Rosette Lollipops. Great fun for wearing too. Like so.
