NUTS AND ABALONE NIBBLES
Local brand Nibbles has combined two things we love during this festive season - macadamia nuts and abalone.
You can buy these from the Nibbles e-store (farmgrocer.sg) or at the Chinese New Year Bazaar 2020 at Temple Street till Jan 24. The nuts go for $25 a bag. Use the code "nibbles" for 20 per cent off and free shipping if you spend above $100.
Keep sugar consumption down this festive season with Marigold Less Sugar Jasmine Green Tea ($2.50 for six 250ml packs). It has 40 per cent less sugar and an aromatic scent of jasmine with freshly brewed premium real tea leaves.
