Number 1 butter brand in Singapore- SCS has launched its first ever social media platform today to better connect with their consumers. Hoping to reach out to the more tech-savvy and younger crowd, SCS Dairy has started its very own Facebook page @ https://www.facebook.com/SCSdairySG to spread the goodness of SCS products to more people.
I was extremely pleasantly surprised when the lovely PR girls from SCS Dairy personally delivered these pretty little cupcakes right to my doorstop. Made by Butter Studio, the bakery only uses SCS Butter for their baked goods. Which comes as no surprise, because I personally also only use SCS Butter for my own baking. Manufactured and produced in Australia, SCS products are premium quality and the difference is obvious in the final product, be it baking or cooking.

Snacking has always been the bad guy to blame when it comes to weight gain. Whenever we feel the pants getting a little tighter or the top becoming a tad too snug, we say it is probably because we have been snacking too much. So snacks and healthy are suitably, the last thing from being associated with each other.
But what if I told you that there was something in the market that is Certified Gluten Free, Non GMO, Certified 100% Whole Grain, Certified Kosher, and Low Sodium, made of SPROUTED INGREDIENTS that taste INCREDIBLY DELICIOUS and yes, satisfies all those post-lunch afternoon cravings.
Here’s introducing Way Better Chips made of real ingredients instead of those processed unhealthy stuff with tons of preservatives and salt. There are 6 flavors in the market currently: Simply Sunny Multi Grain, Simply Sweet Potato, Simply Beyond Black Beans, Simply Sweet Chili, Simply Unbeatable Blues and No Salt Naked Blues.
Bored of the usual baked variety of mooncakes or regular snowskin mooncakes? Then try something interestingly different this year! Iconic Teochew confectionery shop Thye Moh Chan rolls out an exquisite Mid-Autumn collection of traditional Teochew mooncakes for the first time and it has been a huge hit among their long-time customers.
I personally witnessed a bustling crowd at the store in Chinatown Point when I went down to collect my box. And as the mouthwatering pastries on display seem to be disappearing at top speed, I decided on the spot to buy an additional box. But not just because I was being kiasu, but also because the aroma of those freshly baked pastries coming out of the oven hits you as you are waiting in line and was simply irresistible.
Somewhat like your Tau Sar Piah, these mooncakes from Thye Moh Chan had a crisp buttery texture with a light flakiness that was truly unrivaled. The makers have after all, been conjuring handcrafted pastries for the past 3 decades since 1943 and judging from how popular they still are after all these years, is testament to how they have been delivering the ‘goods’.
There are 4 main fillings available to choose from: Sweet or Salty Tau Sar (single yolk), Yuan Yang and Double Delight. You can mix and match your selections and each box of 4 sells for $24.80. Incredibly affordable!! It is no wonder the boxes were flying off the racks like hot cakes! No pun intended of course.
