It’s that time of the year again! All the malls are decked with Chinese New Year decorations and goodies, and although we don’t celebrate the festival, we have family and friends that do celebrate it. We’re thinking of getting gifts for them, so we’ve been looking at things on Shopee Malaysia.
Here are the ones that caught our eyes. We broke it into sections, making it easier for you to browse through.
Cookies & Biscuits
[Halal] 27 Type CNY Cookies/Biscuits (27款年饼)
Special Kuih Kapit, Pineapple Roll, Honeycomb, Peanut Cookie, and Salted Cashew Nut are just some of the things they have in their store. Like these happen to be our favourite biscuits and snacks too! We don’t know about you lot, but besides buying for friends and family we’d probably get a couple for our own consumption too.
PREORDER🔥老字号新年年饼🔥开运年饼 HALAL Traditional CNY Lucky Cookies Popular Chinese New Year Cookies
Here’s another store that sells a selection of halal traditional Chinese New Year cookies. We love Almond Cookies, Peanut Cookies, Sugee Cashew Cookies, & Kuih Bangkit! Gah, by the looks of it we might get a bottle or two from them too!
Yong Sheng CNY Cookies~ [Ready Stock] Prosperity Gift Pack 百福臻礼包 （2tins CNY Cookies 2罐年饼）Halal
We have a bit of a confession here—we have a thing for food that come in tins. There’s just a nostalgia feeling to it. When we were kids, we often get sweets, biscuits, and cookies in tins, and we loved how beautiful the tins looked. Until now, we still have some of those tins at home. (filled with sewing materials, etc.)
Their selection include Almond Cookies, Cashew Nut Cookies, Coconut Crispy Roll, Green Pea Cookies, Carnival Pineapple, Pineapple Jam Filled Cookies (Pandan), Salted Egg Yolk Cookies, Walnut Cookies, and Cranberry Butter Cookies.
Nuts & Snacks
MAHNAZ FOOD – NUTS PROMOTION Pistachio/Cashew Nut/Brazil Nut/Walnut/Charcoal/Hazelnut (500g)
Wanna go nuts over nuts? We love to snack on nuts, regardless of the time of the year. Our top favourite? Roasted and lightly salted cashews! We’ve bought food items from Mahnaz Food before and felt satisfied with it. It’s just that we never bought it online. The reviews are great though.
[Halal] Dried Vegetable Snack Chips & Crisps Healthy Snacks Food Diet 蔬菜干 Okra Shiitake Garlic Lotus Seed Potato Radish
How about getting something healthy for this Chinese New Year? Some of the dried vegetable snack chips & crisps they have in their store include Shiitake Mushroom, Okra, Purple Potato, Red Radish, Yam, Garlic Lotus Seed, Crunchy Garlic, and Tempura Eggplant.
CNY Biscuit 年饼 Dried Shrimp Curry Puff 虾米咖喱角/ Udang Kering Curry Puff (HALAL) [Homemade] 250gm++
We grew up eating Dried Shrimp Curry Puffs and have always thought these are just one of the best snacks ever made! Melodramatic, much? Maybe. But this is one of the things you’ve got to try if you’ve never tried it. Finding good ones are hard these days, and we really hope these would turn out good.
Meats & Cuts
新年 CNY Original Mushroom Snack (HALAL) －Bak Kwa 香菇肉干 200g
Oh hey, it’s another seller on Shopee Malaysia selling halal bakkwa! We don’t think we’ve included them in The Ultimate Halal Bakkwa List blog post. Could probably give this a try. They have Original, Spicy & Black Pepper bakkwa flavours, plus the feedback looks good.
HALAL Bakkwa Ayam Salai Dried Meat Manis Madu Chinese New Year CNY Food Dishes 300g
And there’s another seller selling halal bak kwa!! In the We Tried Halal Chinese Sausages! blog post, we tried their halal Chinese sausages and felt those were pretty good. Now they’ve come up with halal bakkwa too.
Ikea BBQ Chicken Dried Meat <CNY Pack> 500g (Original) HALAL
Ikea has done it again! They came up with their own version of halal bakkwa! We read about it like a couple of years ago, yet we never got the chance to try it. Perhaps this is a sign. Gotta buy ’em all!
So there we have our list of halal Chinese New Year biscuits, snacks, and food you can buy on Shopee Malaysia! We still haven’t decided what to buy. Let us know if you have any recommendations for us.
