The culture of gift-giving in Asia is deeply ingrained and one particularly beloved choice for both informal and formal occasions is none other than Asian snacks. They come in various forms, some perfectly suited for gifting, while others are meant for indulgent personal enjoyment. Most snacks are typically enjoyed alone as they have seasoning and flavours and others can be enjoyed alongside something else.
Taiwanese Pineapple Cake or its alternatives like Green Tea cake or Mango Cake is the perfect gift for any occasion. The sweet, crumbly crust envelops a sumptuous pineapple filling, creating a harmonious blend of flavours and textures that's hard to resist. Another snack commonly given as a gift is Mochi and in Taiwan, it is as a symbol of well-wishing during weddings, New Year celebrations, or as a token of appreciation to friends and family.
Food-based snacks are often eaten as snacks throughout the day and are perfect for when you are in the mood for something light that is crunchy and flavourful. These snacks come with various seasonings whether it's the Longan and Jujube or Caramel sunflower seeds or peas with spicy, wasabi, mustard or garlic flavour. Whether you're at your desk, on a picnic, or simply relaxing at home, these snacks can satisfy your crunchy cravings.

We offer several Seafood snacks such as Fried Tuna Fibre, Shredded and Rolled Squid, Pollock fish snacks and Grilled Squid strips. The Fried Tuna Fibre, also known as Tuna floss, has a delicate texture and is often compared to cotton candy. It can be eaten alone as a sweet and savoury treat but is commonly used to incorporate or sprinkle on top of dishes such as rice, congee and noodles. When it comes to our other seafood snacks, they are typically enjoyed just as they are. Here is a secret tip for the Pollock fish snack– give it a quick whirl in the microwave and you will get a hot and crispy experience that adds an extra layer of satisfaction to your snacking routine.

We offer a range of snacks with seaweed flavours such as Seaweed crackers, Konjac Brown Rice Roll, Oatcake, Corn Roll, Wheat Crackers and Rice crackers. Our new Seaweed Crisps are perfect for a quick flavourful and nutritious addition to your food when you are on the go.

With this, you can easily add a flavourful crunch to your sandwich, salads or soups or if you are feeling adventurous, you can even make your own seaweed-flavoured rice balls!
What differs Asian snacks from other snacks on the market
One significant distinction lies in the range of flavours that Asian snacks offer, with a particular emphasis on many fruit flavours like grape, strawberry, passionfruit, and lychee. What sets Asian snacks apart is their ability to provide a single product with a multitude of flavours; for instance, mochi boasts an impressive array of 23 delectable options, while Seed snacks come in 6 distinctive seasoning flavours.
Asian snacks ingeniously transform a variety of ingredients and vegetables into new and exciting forms. Seaweed and beans are examples that undergo a delicious transformation, resulting in snacks like crispy seaweed sheets and crunchy roasted broad beans. Meanwhile, dried fruits, vegetables, and salted variations offer an unconventional twist to traditional snacking. In contrast, Western snacks often lean towards chocolate and pastries, with fewer ventures into vegetable-based varieties.
Many Asian snacks are tailored to meet specific dietary needs, with options catering to vegetarian and gluten-free preferences. These choices are not only delicious but also align with a health-conscious lifestyle.
