Yong Hup delivers local snacks!
Are you a junk food junkie? What kind of snacks do you like? Me, all kinds. Two weeks ago, I revisited the website of local snack manufacturer Yong Hup which has been taking orders online and making deliveries islandwide for a few years now. Free delivery for orders of S$10 (each pack is S$2).
I took a chance, to see how well they would fare. So, late one Friday night, I keyed in my order, not expecting much. Wow, the very next day, I got calls from them confirming my order and that very Saturday afternoon, they delivered to my doorstep! That's literally fulfilment in less than 24 hours! I'm impressed! Some of the packs felt warm and freshly sealed too!
You may have tasted some of their snacks (used to be available at Watson's). Here's a quick review of each.
TOP ROW - LEFT TO RIGHT
Fish crackers - huge pack, but if you eat too much at one sitting, your tongue may go numb a little
Indonesian prawn crackers - nice, tasty
Surimi crackers - interesting, tastes a bit like crabmeat
Vegetable chips - light-tasting but a certain spiciness builds up as you eat
BOTTOM ROW - LEFT TO RIGHT
Prawn sticks - yuck, some sticks are tough and chewy, tastes more like fish too
Curry tapioca - delicious, although I've had better
Fish balls/sticks - dense and crunchy
Fine murukku - oh, addictive!
Chili tapioca - not bad, loaded with spicy sambal, peanuts and anchovies
Star murukku - not so nice, rather bland
And no, I didn't eat ALL of them at one go!
