unique chinese new year goodies

Chinese New Year (CNY) is right around the corner, and now’s the perfect time to start preparing for visits. Of course, other than hanging up decorations and preparing lohei, there’s one more thing you can’t forget: CNY snacks.

Grand Mercure Singapore Roxy’s CNY Goodies are just what’s missing from your snack tables. To usher in the Lunar New Year, they’ve released a lineup of CNY snacks with a modern touch.

A twist on traditional snacks

This year, they’ve added a refreshing twist on some of the best-loved classics, such as the pineapple tart — exactly what you need to freshen up in the middle of your next mahjong game. 

The Prune Lapis Roll ($18) was just right — not too rich, not too moist, not too soft. The roll was fragrant and had a good balance between sweet and savoury. The prunes added a refreshing layer of taste to the roll too. Even my mother, who claimed she wasn’t a fan of lapis rolls, couldn’t get enough of this one.

The presentation of the roll was beautiful too; the little sugared chun lian is the cherry on top. To top it off, the lapis roll came in a cute red box with a zhao cai mao (lucky cat) on it! 

For just $16, you get to experience the amazing feeling of blueberry melting in your mouth. 

The sweet and tangy flavours of blueberry and pineapple in the Blueberry Pineapple Tart integrated so well together, neither of them overpowered the other. I really enjoyed the buttery, crumbly texture of the tarts too… They were so good, I couldn’t stop popping them into my mouth.

These Chinese New Year Goodies are available for takeaway until 5 February 2023. Grand Mercure Singapore Roxy’s CNY goodies also include Golden Pineapple Tart ($16), Citrus Kueh Bahulu ($15) and Almond Cookies ($16).
