Kawaii Treats for Kids

Jolie and Nadine with goodie bag snacks
For Nadine's birthday last month, we assembled little goodie bags for her classmates at Rainbow Centre. Went to Yamakawa, the Japanese supermarket at Central (above Clarke Quay MRT, at Eu Tong Sen Street), where I knew I could get kawaii mini snack packs that kids love.

Kawaii mini-packs
Cheese sandwich biscuits, little senbei (rice crackers) and gummy candy. These are so delicious I don't think only kids should enjoy them! Even Ritz biscuits made in Japan taste a LOT better than local versions. S$3.50 to $4.80 per strip of 4-5 packs.

Some of the candy
They have so much candy there, many with unusual flavours. I'm not terribly in favour of giving young kids sweets but at least the kids in class are taught to brush their teeth after every meal.

How do I eat this...

Yamakawa Supermarket in basement of Central Shopping Centre
This is an old photo of Yamakawa Supermarket, taken when they newly opened some time ago. Brightly lit shelves stocked with a dazzling array of snacks, tidbits, candy and grocery items. They have expanded their range of goods and I hope they keep doing so! Yamakawa also supplies to other department stores and supermarkets.
