Asian Snacks Haul


I love to snack. I also love finding new things to try so the other day I paid a visit to Wingyip. Wingyip is an Asian cash and carry that sell food and snacks from Asia. I always get attracted to cute packaging hence why these came back with me! So here's a run through of what I bought and their rating ^^



Meiji Yan Yan Creamy Vanilla/Stawberry flavoured dip biscuit snack

Aren't these the cutest?! If you get sweet cravings then this will definitely satisfy your sweet tooth. These cute tubs contain 2 sections, one contains a handful of finger like biscuits that are sweet but not overly sweet. The other section is filled with a flavoured dip, there is definitely enough to dip all of the biscuits. I don't have a particular favourite. I love both equally but for photographing purposes I would choose the pink one. Surprise surprise. This is perfect if you want something sweet but don't want to go overboard with sweet treats. I would rate this 10/10 for the cute packaging, taste and overall sweetness.


Oishi Soft Milk Candy

What I love about asian sweets is their obsession with milk flavoured things and I personally LOVE it. We don't have enough of it in western brands. This definitely caught my eye when I was browsing and the packaging is just so pleasing to look at. The candies come individually wrapped and they are so divine! It's actually hard to stop at just one. These are so chewy and flavoured just right, not overly sweet and really do taste milky. I would definitely repurchase these and they're great for on the go too. 10/10 because these are awesome!!



IMEI Wafer Roll Milk Flavoured

I don't really eat or like wafers but this product definitely changed my mind. It was the packaging and the flavour that made me pick this up. When you open the packet, you'll find a tray of wafer rolls and the milk filling was insane! They definitely put enough filling for the flavour to come through. It was hard to eat just a few and boy! These were lovely with a cup of tea. These were a bit on the sweeter side though so maybe after 4 or 5 it would be enough. I will have to see if there are any other flavoured because I really liked this. 8/10 because of the level of sweetness.


Nongshim Sweet Potato Snack

I guess it was the pink that made me pick this up and my curiosity too haha! I have never tried any sweet potato snacks before so this was completely new to me. I think I will give these a miss next time. The actual snacks were potato but they had a sweet sugar coated glaze with black sesame seeds sprinkled on top. I don't think these were actually made out of sweet potatoes, it was made out of pumpkin powder and wheat powder not actual sweet potatoes like the packaging suggests weird! If you are into the whole savoury and sweet flavours mixed together then you might really like these. 3/10 for the cute packaging and sweet flavour but not for me.


Meiji Hello Panda Fun Filled Biscuit Treats
Now this has been a firm favourite of mine since I tried it for the very first time. The packaging gets top marks from me straightaway and the flavour truly is spot on. I have three favourites: Milk, Strawberry and Coconut (NEW) which I bought last week. These small biscuits have a illustration printed on them with a sweet filling. There is just the right amount of filling in each biscuit and believe me, you could easily finish the whole box. 10/10 definitely will continue to purchase these!

Have you tried any of these popular Asian sweet treats before? Comment below!
