Trendy Nostalgic Singapore Snacks of the 90s!

August is a joyous month as Singapore celebrates its 57th birthday. With spirits high and the love for our young national state strong, we reminisce the good old days of Singapore's past and how far we've come.

Talking to your parents and grandparents while flipping through old black and white photos will show you that Singapore food was as big of a thing then as it is now. Those who grew up in the 90s will remember what used to be the best childhood snack or Singaporean Snack. When we think of Singapore traditional snacks, our memories immediately navigate towards the street style snacks like the Singapore candy, ding dang tang, dragon beard, corn cups, muah chee, kachang puteh among so many others. But in fact as kids, we spent our time after school in mama shops (or what it felt like Willy Wonka's factory) gushing and choosing snacks to eat on our bus ride home.

Did you know that old school snacks or nostalagia snacks are NOW trendy and a new term "newstalgia" has been coined. The question is - how do you introduce "newstalgia" snacks to your family and friends who have never seen, heard or tried these snacks. For those that have tried it, how do you help them bring back memories and their childhood filled with happy memories, mementos and personal reminders of times when they grew up?
