CNY 2016: [GIVEAWAY CLOSED] Garrett Popcorn makes the perfect snack this CNY!

Each year, I approach Chinese New Year with some apprehension. One reason? Rocketing prices of CNY goodies. Another reason? The lack of variety in goodies available.

There are after all only so many ways to present a pineapple tart, yes? I declared I was not going to stuff myself silly and queue myself nuts at CNY fairs jostling with a ton of people and paying an arm and leg just for those prized tins of snacks.

I mean why do we have to pay double or triple the usual prices when the snack remains the same?

So this year, I am going for unconventional CNY snacks. Garrett Popcorn first comes to mind because who doesn’t like having yummy finger-sized snacks? Perfect when having friends over for a cosy get together, and the kids (and the adults of course) during the annual family soiree will love you for it.


I have been a fan of these handcrafted kettle cooked gourmet Popcorn and never looked back. Plus, they are made fresh on the spot too! I kid you not when I prowl town indulging in that spot of retail therapy and a bag of Garrett’s Popcorn on the other. 

Personally, I love all of their flavours – 





Freshly melted, sharp cheddar cheese is the key ingredient in this savoury delight. Each time, I end up with daffodil yellow stained cheesy fingers and that lingering deliciosity – mamma mia!  

Don’t these fluffy kernels remind you of gold nuggets? A prosperous snack, indeed!


Chicago Mix


On days I feel like having savoury and sweet this is my best choice – a combination of cheesecorn and caramelcrisp. It is like treasure hunting, you never know what you will get next! 



Macadamia CaramelCrisp


Laced with brown sugar, a crème brulee crunch and chockfuls of macadamias, this specialty flavor is for the ultimate sweet tooth!


I can never stop at one, it’s always one kernel after another. 


Which flavor will win your heart this CNY?
