Load up on CNY goodies at Cheers, FairPrice Xpress
Festive essentials include large abalones, top-ranked pineapple cakes and sumptuous pen cai
With Chinese New Year a week away, Cheers and FairPrice Xpress have you covered when it comes to festive essentials.
Get ready for and level up your celebrations with a myriad of offerings at the local convenience store chain.
Abalone is one of the must-haves when it comes to CNY feasting.
So treat your family and friends to Cedmex Mexico Wild Abalone 454g, which is on promotion for $158 a can (usual price $173).
With Mexico being one of the last countries to allow fishing of wild large-sized green abalones, the North American nation-harvested abalone is considered a world premium due to its limited supply.
Cedmex Mexico Wild Abalone is sourced from Baja California in Mexico and deemed to be of superior quality compared with other abalones - it is firm to touch but the softest to bite and boasting an excellent aroma.
NO.1 PINEAPPLE CAKES
Another CNY classic to add to your shopping basket are pineapple cakes.
Ranked as Singapore's No.1 by 8 Days magazine last year, SunnyHills' signature Pineapple Cakes at Cheers go for $27.80 a box for 10 pieces.
Made from organic pineapples grown by family farmers in Taiwan and other 100 per cent natural ingredients - including the finest Japanese flour and butter from New Zealand grass-fed cows - each cake has a fragrant and buttery crust with a dense and rich pineapple centre.
Each cake is individually wrapped in special washi paper, which makes it an ideal gift for your loved ones.
Purchase yours from selected Cheers and FairPrice Xpress stores for a limited time only.
Also available at these outlets are something durian lovers cannot resist.
Do not miss out on the Forbidden D24 Love Letters ($12.50 a box of seven pieces), made with specially selected D24 durians from a plantation in Pahang by an award-winning Malaysian chef trained in French pastries.
Crunchy with a mild durian scent, these will fill your mouth with a tinge of sweetness in every bite.
