Favorite CNY snacks

*Thanks for the concern everyone, appreciate them. I am feeling better already =)*


This is interesting! I mean I know most CNY snacks are oily and fattening but I don't really know the actual calories for each of them.

Now, looking at this photo, which is your favorite CNY snacks? Mine will be nian gao fritters, love letters and peanut cookies! But gosh look at the calories!! :0

Speaking of CNY snacks, I'll love to bake some on my own, shall find the time to! Homemade snacks are always healthier, right?

Til then, wishing you guys a happy weekend!

  9. Hello Hayley,

    Good to know that you are feeling better. Thank you for the chart. Luckily I don't eat bakwa since the calories are so high per piece. My favourite snack is pineapple tarts, if they are not very sweet and sourish.

    Wishing you and your family have a good weekend too!
