With so many CNY goodies to choose from, why not choose one best-suited for your Zodiac personality?
Chinese New Year is almost upon us! I don’t know about you, but one of my favourite things about the season is the awesome snacks. Because these snacks are typically only available for several months in a year, that makes them even more treasured. But with such a wide variety of goodies available, how do you decide? Let our zodiac personality chart and the folks at Yang Yang Cookies help!
You are a … Rat
Personality traits: Quick-witted, charming, and persuasive but can be easily agitated or grouchy
Try: Yang Yang Premium Dark Chocolate Cookies, $17.80. For the high-strung or easily stressed out, what can be a better remedy than chocolate? The cookies from Yang Yang uses premium dark chocolate imported from Japan!
You are an … Ox
Personality traits: Patient, dependable, and methodical. However, “Ox” personalities tend to hold grudges for a long time.
Try: Yang Yang Premium Kueh Lapis (Original), $52 for whole cake. For something that is reliably delicious, look no further than Yang Yang’s kueh lapis. Tip: While most people like eating their kueh lapis immediately, it’s better to give it a day or two as the flavours of kueh lapis continue to develop even after it’s been baked. When you’re ready to eat, take a few slices from the fridge and let it thaw for 10 minutes. Y-U-M.
You are a … Tiger
Personality traits: Rebellious, vivacious, and adventurous. They may have large egos, but are usually very romantic.
Try: Yang Yang Prawn Rolls, $11. For those who like a bit of sass and spice in their food, these prawn rolls don’t disappoint with their aromatic hae bee hiam (spicy dried shrimp) filling.
You are a … Rabbit
Personality traits: Reserved, elegant, and self-assured but can be conniving or even ruthless.
Try: Yang Yang Premium Kueh Bangkit, $17.80. This is another CNY staple – the version from Yang Yang is incredibly light and smooth, dissolving into a creamy, coconut-flavoured paste in your mouth.
You are a … Dragon
Personality traits: Brimming with positive energy, “Dragon” personalities can be egocentric and demanding, but never without a loyal band of followers.
Try: Yang Yang Premium Green Pea Cookies, $18.80. Despite its unusual main ingredient, this is Yang Yang Cookies’ bestselling item – definitely fit for a winning Dragon-like personality!
You are a … Snake
Personality traits: Graceful, intelligent, and sophisticated, but tends to be skeptical of others.
Try: Yang Yang Blueberry Cookies, $15.80. With its shiny and juicy blueberry filling, these cookies not only taste great – they look great as well!
You are a … Horse
Personality traits: Cheerful, popular, and warm-hearted, but is often easily distracted.
Try: Yang Yang Sugee (almond), $15.80. On its own, sugee is already a crowd pleaser, but when paired with the subtle flavours of almond, these cookies are out-of-this-world amazing.
You are a … Goat
Personality traits: While sincere, well-mannered, and compassionate, “Goat” personalities also tend to be worriers.
Try: Yang Yang Kueh Lapis (prune), $55 for whole cake. If you’re looking for something not too sweet, this prune-filled concoction will certainly satisfy.
You are a … Monkey
Personality traits: Spunky, sociable, and confident, the “Monkey” can occasionally be a tad too self-absorbed.
Try: Yang Yang Premium Pineapple Tarts, $28. These handmade treasures are a loving and painstaking work of art — a sweet, moist pineapple filling is encased within a buttery ball of goodness — and is perfect for party-loving “Monkeys”.
You are a … Rooster
Personality traits: The “Rooster” is often known for being neat, meticulous, and decisive, but some may dismiss these traits as old-fashioned or inflexible.
Try: Yang Yang Egg Rolls, $22. Better known as “love letters”, these fragrant wafer-thin snacks are a must-have Chinese New Year snack! A consistently yummy snack for a person who thrives on consistency!
You are a … Dog
Personality traits: Honest, loyal, and amiable, “Dog” personalities are usually well-loved but they may sometimes lack self-motivation.
Try: Yang Yang Coconut Cookies, $15.80. Bursting with rich aromas of coconut, these cookies will remind you of an idyllic beachside holiday with a piña colada in one hand, and a breezy summer novella in the other.
You are a … Boar
Personality traits: “Boar” personalities may come across as rough or unpolished but they’re often thoughtful, courageous, and unpretentious.
Try: Yang Yang Premium Oat Raisin Cookies, $17.80. This is another familiar favourite and can be enjoyed all year round, not just during CNY.
