This traditional snack should be no stranger to the average Singaporean or Asian. Crunchy, crisp and spicy, these chilli prawn crackers are an essential part of Kacang Puteh and almost always present at every ethnic celebration - bringing as much spice as we need in life.

This mamee noodle like snack, has redefined addiction for me. I just can't stop eating this one. Shaped like noodles and crispy as it should be, these Chicken Spicy Crackers have a satisfying crunch and a mild spicy kick that leaves you craving more. If you love your mamee noodle snacks, you will love this.

This crispy traditional snack, also known as Murukku, is a classic favourite for its addictive spice and crunch that leaves you only craving more. It's an essential at almost every festive occasion, and I absolutely love my murukku. It sometimes comes mixed with peas and nuts. Are you "team mixed" or "team original"?
(4) Murukku Mix

This mixed version of the murukku snack comprises an added mix of peas and sometimes peanuts to give a more wholesome flavour. Some prefer this to the original murukku. Are you "team mixed" or "team original"?
(5) Murukku Spiral

What goes around comes around, and this is true for Murukku. If you're looking for something classic, this is the Murukku snack for you. These beautiful spiral crisps are too pretty to eat, I have left them aside just to decorate my personal pantry. Could this be the one for you?
(6) Vegetable Chilli Crackers

Spice is something we all need and love in life. These vegetable crackers are a nostalgic classic snack we absolutely love. While available in the original flavour, we would be doing our Asian roots injustice if we don't love this more than the original version. Definitely saved the best for the last on this one.

Where to buy Deepavali Snacks in Singapore?
We love our snacks as much as you do. However, it is really hard to find classic snacks we love today, mostly because there are so many modern brands with chips, biscuits and snacks that are popularised with wild flavours. Hence, finding them at individual stores tend to be a whole hassle.
From google searching for mama shops or suppliers all the way to heading down to industrial "ulu" places to check for availability and prices, it gets messy and frustrating since most of the suppliers today supply mostly in bulk.
That's why we do what we do here at WAI. With a growing variety of over 70 snacks, we pride ourselves very much in bringing Singapore's Best Snacks in one place. All the snacks you see above are available for islandwide snack delivery on WAI.
Gifting is more than just the gift itself. Above all else, the intention behind the great wonders is what truly matters. To send a feeling and gift an experience, is why we do what we do. With gifts for every feeling and occasion, we put the emotions into gifts like never before. Beyond the wonders, lies intention. With Wonder and Intention hand in hand, we recreate the magic we crave by always starting with WAI.
