Best CNY Goodies 2020 – Poon Confectionary

Just after Christmas, shops all around have shifted their gears to welcome the Chinese Lunar New Year. In this season of festivity and feasting, my family and I decided to start looking for the most recommended Chinese New Year goodies – after all, there’s just so much we should eat, and we should make those calories worth it. 

This year, my family and I chanced upon Poon Confectionary while reading a recommended post on Chinese New Year goodies and we decided to give it a shot. Instead of heading down to the physical shop in Guillemard Road where you can actually try out the products, we placed our order online at www.cnydelivery.com (the address is pretty self-explanatory). Our order included the two containers each of the following:  Homemade Peanut Butter Kuih Kapit (SGD $14.90), Award Winning Premium Hae Bee Hiam Prawn Roll (SGD $14.90), and Premium Golf Ball Pineapple Tarts (SGD $22.90). Delivery is free if you purchase >SGD $100 or a small fee of SGD $6.90 if your order falls below that!

I was really impressed by the speed of delivery. We placed our order on a Friday and received our order the next day!

But here’s the verdict of the products – 

Homemade Peanut Butter Kuih Kapit aka The Show Stealer

Peanut Butter Kuih Kapit

Wrapped in love-letter-like biscuit, the peanut butter was thick and creamy, and very very rich. Item tasted very fresh and light, and does not taste like a mass-produced product (if you know what I mean). This is also a pretty unique product (in my opinion) considering that I’ve not seen this product sold in many places elsewhere. If you like peanut butter and love-letters, this IS the go-to Chinese New Year goodie for you this year. 

Hae Bee Hiam Prawn Roll aka CNY Must-Have Spicy Staple

Hae Bee Hiam Prawn Roll

Poon Confectionary won the Vulcan Post’s top prawn roll category and think they deserved it. Each piece of prawn roll had a decent amount of spicy prawn paste wrapped in a thin spring-roll skin. According to Poon Confectionary, fresh shrimps are caught from their village (company originates from Malaysia) and products are only made upon being ordered! These prawn rolls are seriously addictive because of its freshness and spiciness. 

Premium Golf Ball Pineapple Tarts aka CNY Must-Have Sweet Staple

Golf Ball Pineapple Tarts

These melt-in-the-mouth pineapple tarts were very buttery, with a good amount of pineapple filling in them. The pastry was sufficiently firm when holding yet melts so nicely in the mouth. Unlike factory-made pineapple jam that tends to be hard and overly sweet, the pineapple filling of these tarts tasted very fresh, soft, and had a very tangy flavour. Do note that these golf ball pineapple tarts looked like ordinary pineapple tarts and I wouldn’t consider them big by any means (compared to the Le Cafe Confectionary and Pastry golf-ball pineapple tarts).

Thoughts

Poon Confectionary’s products did not disappoint, and we were amazed by the quality and value of the products. While the prawn roll and pineapple tarts were really good, my family and I felt that the homemade peanut butter kuih kapit was the best in this order because of its uniqueness and quality. Let’s just say that we placed a second order on the same day our first order arrived – ten containers of homemade peanut butter kuih kapit, two containers of prawn rolls, and two containers of the premium golf ball pineapple tarts 😉 That’s another 14 containers of goodies to enjoy this festive season!
