Ready, set, dig in! Arm yourself with these CNY cookies and cakes for a good old feast. We’re spotlighting tiger-themed treats and traditional crowd pleasers.
Chinese New Year is all about reunion gatherings and feasting merry to our hearts’ content. Can’t wait to start stocking up on CNY cookies? We totally hear you! Get off to a roaring start this year with Polar Puffs & Cakes, which has rolled out a drool-worthy range of snacks. Here are the highlights…
Perks: place your order from now until 16 January to enjoy a 25% early bird special discount. This promotion is valid for all products except for the Prosperity Set and Tokidoki fortune cake. From 17 to 31 January, Polaris members can also enjoy 15% off.
Dig into crumbly almond cookies ($19.80), or try the new dark chocolate sea salt cookies ($19.80). Otherwise, wow your guests with the striking tiger-striped CNY cookies ($19.80) which, like the name suggests, are aesthetic to boot. These buttery shortcrust cookies are patterned with cocoa stripes – photo-worthy and delicious!
When visiting other homes, it’s an unspoken rule to never go empty-handed. Other than arming yourself with the customary oranges, Polar has introduced a spiffy Prosperity Set that’ll make the perfect gift. Priced at $23.80, it won’t even break the bank! The set contains two of Polar’s bestsellers – shrimp rolls and pineapple pillows – on top of dark chocolate sea salt cookies.
Looking for something a little more substantial? Grab a Fortune Cake in various flavours such as orange butter ($21.80) or butter ($20.80). If you have little ones in the family, they’ll love the butter fortune cake that comes with an adorable Tokidoki design ($23.80).
Of course, what would Chinese New Year be without popular and well-loved snacks? Pop one – or as many as you want! – into your mouth. You can burn those calories off later. Take your pick from glistening pineapple pillows ($20.80), spicy shrimp rolls ($19.80), or the melt-in-your mouth kueh bangkit ($20.80).
Other selections include traditional love letters ($23.80), salted egg palmiers ($20.80), a unique nian gao cake ($6.90), or an aromatic kueh lapis ($49.80).
The best part? Get your hands on Polar’s physical CNY brochure to make your own origami tiger from its pages. There’s an easy-to-follow step-by-step instruction manual, as well as a tutorial video, so you don’t have to worry about messing up. Take a picture of the process or your end product, and tag Polar on Facebook or Instagram (@polarpuffs_cakes) for a chance to be featured. How cute is that!
Do note that all pre-orders should be placed three days in advance, excluding day of delivery or order, as well as public holidays and eves, at any Polar retail outlets or online. Mark your calendars, ‘cos 27 January is the last day for pre-orders.
