5. Irvins Salted Egg Fish Skin 


We don’t know about you, but a lot of Singaporeans are obsessed with salted egg flavors. We’re not sure if it’s the creaminess or umami-rich nature or both, but whatever it is, our staff members here can all agree that it’s indeed irresistible. 

Fortunately, Irvin’s, a local snack brand, made it easy for the locals to feed on their addiction. Enter the salted egg fish skin, an indulgent and addicting treat that we love for its punchy flavors and crunchy bite. 

And in case you’re wondering, yes, it tastes a lot like salted egg, for sure! 

Other flavor choices include jalapeno cheese salmon skin, truffle potato chips, and black pepper salmon skin. 

Oh, and did we mention they also have a collaboration with Nissin? These noodle packets come in mala salted egg, salted egg, and spicy salted egg. 

6. Fupi’s Beancurd Skin Crisps 


Have you ever eaten at a hot pot and found yourself unable to resist munching on their beancurd skin? We think we’ve all had this problem once or twice (or all the time). 

Fortunately, Fupi comes to the rescue by making sure we can enjoy this snack anytime, anywhere, thanks to their beancurd skin crisps. 

We love its crunchiness and its perfect size, as if tailor-made for snacking. 

The best part is that you can choose from a variety of flavors, ensuring that you can satisfy your craving according to your palate. This includes Sichuan mala beancurd skin and hot pot tomato beancurd skin. 

Be forewarned: these are just as addicting as the ones you eat at hot pots, if not more! 

They also have beancurd skin sticks, which have a similar texture but are smaller in size. Another difference is the flavor availability, as this only comes in seaweed wasabi and green curry.
