Have you ever been in a situation where you are invited to a pot-luck party and you have no idea what to bring? You may not know how to cook, or not want to go to the trouble of cooking, and yet those who can’t cook have already choped the desserts. What do you do then? How about bringing something to jazz up the food that people are going to bring?

Run to the rescue The Golden Duck Salted Egg Yolk Potato Crisps and Fish Skin Crisps. Toss these salty and crispy morsels onto just about any dish you can think off and voila, you’ve added in a bit of extra excitement. I mean admit it, there are precious few people around who DON’T like something crispy, so this is a potentially winning idea! Anyway, even if you don’t eventually use these crisps, they still make good gifts for the host so you don’t end up coming empty handed.

Check out the following dishes for ideas on how to utilise The Golden Duck’s Salted Egg Yolk Potato Crisps and Fish Skin Crisps. During this Chinese New Year period, you can also get limited edition packaging in an auspicious colour complete with a festive saying aka Auspicious Blessings printed on the packet, such as 步步高升 and 身体健康.

Marks & Spencers Extremely Chocolatey Milk Chocolate Rounds

As much as the Partner thinks I love chocolate, and I do buy truckloads of chocolate back home to Singapore when I am overseas, chocolate doesn’t always hit the spot for me. I think I’m a carbo kind of person. When the cravings strike, it’s maggi mee and potato chips that I think of. Sometimes, I do feel like I need to eat a piece of chocolate, but I still feel as if I need/want something more.

Lately, I discovered a way to solve this problem. I was at Marks & Spencers and I saw they had this Extremely Chocolatey Milk Chocolate Rounds. It’s shortbread cookies covered in extremely thick and chocolatey milk chocolate. And when I say extremely thick, I do mean that. Don’t think I’ve come across any other brand in the supermarket that sells something like this. They even have a dark chocolate version. I had one earlier today and it tastes damn good. My mood was lifted instantly.

But I think the most ultimate snack for me would be the chocolate covered potato chips. I’ve only ever tried those at Royce once. They were damn good too, but not cheap. Now I regret even bringing up this topic because now I will most likely go buy some tomorrow at Raffles City.

I think I once read somewhere that men crave for salty snacks whereas women crave for sweet snacks. What sort of snacks do you crave?

By the way, try to avoid chocolate that doesn’t melt in your hand. Chocolate naturally melts at body temperature. If it doesn’t, it means that additives have been added to prevent it from doing so. Notice the chocolates you buy from Europe melt into a gooey mess if you leave it out in the open? Chocolates originating from tropical asia tend to have these additives so I avoid those chocolates whenever possible.
