CNY Delivery - Poon Confectionary

Poon Confectionary is one of the oldest makers of homemade tidbits and Chinese New Year Goodies in the market. They came from a long line of family bakers, and were famous for Muah Chee and Pineapple Tarts, long before 1971. The Poon Family baked goods from home and sold them at hawker stalls in the streets of Malaysia.  

Poon expanded to Singapore in 2018. Keeping in line with the trend of buying goods online in today’s times, they have decided to launch operations online for the convenience of shopping and gifting. If you have tried them before you will know what to come back for, if not, hop down to their location for a time of free tasting!

We say food tastes its best being homemade and handmade. Made with natural ingredients without preservative or artificial flavours. As the years went by, many traditional bakers turned to automation and machinery to increase the volume of their goods. Poon knew that the taste of each cookie is maintained and upheld by their family tradition of hand-making each cookie by hand, with only light machinery used.

And here are some mouth watering goodies Poon Confectionary had sent us.




Needless to say, we had a prelude to CNY feasting even before the actual. And here's our verdict of the cookies.


1. Golden Pillow Pineapple Tarts ($15.72)
These pineapple tarts melt in your mouth. Soft, buttery and not overly sweet. They are lovingly shaped to bite sized without being messy. I am usually one who would always opt for an opened face tarts over closed, but I realised this is not a bad option too.

2. Hae Bee Hiam Sambal Prawn Roll (虾米条) ($14.41)
This is our all time favourite! Almost hard to stop the moment you start. Sambal Prawn Roll, also known as Shrimp Roll, is spicy but filled with astonishing goodness. Each bite crunches in your mouth and fills your taste buds with awesome tasting shrimp. I find this slightly more spicy than the commercial ones. It was not too bad for me, but it sent the kids jumping up and down. If you had like something richer in spice level, this is definitely the choice.

As a side note, their prawn roll is made with shrimp but it is more commonly called a prawn roll. Most prawn rolls are also made with shrimp.

3. Green Pea Cookies (青豆饼) ($14.41)
An alternative for those who do not like almond cookies, green pea cookies are equally good. Being green pea, they are sometimes an acquired taste. I find them great tasting, but not the kids. Oh well, they remove the peas from their fried rice all the time. No surprise.

Poon confectionary assures that there is no better green pea cookie out there in Singapore! Fragrant and crunchy with a light, buttery aftertaste of green pea. This delightful cookie’s recipe was one of the first in their family tradition. It has since been perfected many times, resulting in the splendid Green Pea Cookie.

4. Salted Egg Chips (咸蛋薯片) ($14.41)
This is a must-try for salted egg lovers. It is flavourful, but we felt that it lacked some crunch and crisp. Or perhaps, we have not eaten enough salted egg chips for compare.



5. Kuih Kapit Love Letters (Peanut Butter Filling) (花生鸡蛋卷) ($14.41)
Love Letters with delicious peanut butter fillings. This was our best and most well liked at home! And you won't believe that the peanut butter is 100% Homemade by Poon, with a slightly salty, not-so-sweet taste. Soooo good!

Each love letter has been folded and baked to be buttery, slightly sweet and deliciously tasty. The peanut butter filling makes it all the more glorious. And though it looks thickly filled, it is not at all jerlat. You won't get sick of it.
