And we’ve reached another month of delicious snacks. If you’re thinking ‘SNACKS’, no, I can’t have those. They’re really unhealthy and fattening. I’m on a diet. STOP.
Because snacks aren’t unhealthy. It depends on the KIND of snacks you choose. And with Boxgreen, you’re able to snack guilt-free with their range of nutritious yet yummy options.

CHENG TNG (NO ICE)
‘Literally clear soup, here’s our own spin on this Chinese dessert. Ready to eat out of the bag, no need for the hassle of boiling and ice.’
Dried Longan, Goji Berry, Crispy Lotus Seeds
Cheng Tng is a dessert that Singaporeans are all familiar with, especially suitable to enjoy on hot days to cool ourselves down. With its refreshing sweet broth and various nutritious ingredients like longan, white fungus and lotus seeds, it’s versatile and can be eaten both hot and cold. Boxgreen’s dry version is equally good, with 3 main dried ingredients, you can now have Cheng Tng on the go!
Both the dried longan and goji berry provides a taste of sweetness while the crispy lotus seeds offers texture. With both chewiness and crunchiness within one packet, the combination of 2 opposite bite experiences merge to surprise my taste palette. It’s not necessarily one of the snacks that I reach out for, but I definitely do not mind munching on it while watching YouTube on my laptop.
‘Figs may look a little strange and fancy to some, but take a bite and enjoy the gooey sweetness that lie beneath its brown exterior. Good things await!.’
I’ve had this before in previous Boxgreen boxes and am glad that I received it again. These dried fruits have the most extreme textures mixed into one little fruit yet the surprising combination is such a joy! It’s chewy yet the edible seeds are crunchy while the whole snack is sweet. This serves as an appetiser and a dessert, depending when you rather have them; before or after your main. But one thing for sure is that I couldn’t just stop at 1!
SHITAKE MUSHROOM CHIPS
‘These mushrooms may not look as pretty as those Sunshine Chips but gosh they sure are pretty addictive!’
Air Fried Shitake Mushroom Chips
Another favourite of mine is this air fried Shitake mushroom chips. Even before finishing this post, I have already munched on the whole pack. It’s gone! And oh so good. Even though it’s air fried, the chips still withheld their full flavor and delivered quite the perfect snack for pretty much any time of the day. Just like the figs, one is never enough! And they’re considered pretty healthy right? I mean, the only ingredient is Shitake Mushroom which is essentially a vegetable.
PEANUT PRETZEL MUDDY BITES
‘Something salty, something crunchy, something sweet. With a dash of chocolate chips, a handful of cashews, peanut and everything pretzel, it’s the perfect snack on-the-go!.’
Pretzels, Chocolate Chips, Peanuts, Cashews
Saving the newest snack for the last, I have rather high hopes for this. With a mix of semi-sweet chocolate chips, salty pretzels and crunchy nuts, the combination sounds like music to my ears. I thought it sounds good, but did it taste good? You bet it did! The sweetness from the chocolate paired perfectly with the salty pretzels. While you’re savouring the salty-sweet merge of both flavors, suddenly there’s a crunch from the nuts. It’s like a party in your mouth!
