Where to buy Old School Singaporean Snacks
1. Munch Munch
With a name like Munch Munch, you can expect to chow down on old school Singaporean snacks, just like during your carefree school days.

We recommend consolidating your orders as you get free delivery for orders above $100. Munch Munch charges a $10 delivery fee if your order is below $100.

2. Nineties Candy Society
The 3 young founders of Nineties Candy Society set up the shop with the goal of bringing back fond memories and helping the less fortunate by employing them.
Besides selling old school Singaporean snacks, Nineties Candy Society is also able to provide goodie bags, candy buffets, and mascot rental for events.
In terms of delivery, Nineties Candy Shop charges $18 for purchases $201 and below, which is rather steep if you are buying a small quantity. Delivery is free for purchases $201 and above, so buying in bulk is the way to go!
3. Teck Leong Lee Kee
The name of this shop hints its age!
Teck Leong Lee Kee has been established since 1968. They specialise in wholesale chocolate and candies!
Enter the shop and you will find rows and rows of snacks! It is literally an old school Singaporean snack fan’s paradise.
Like the other two shops above, Teck Leong Lee Kee also sells other popular old school playthings such as sparklers and styrofoam paper planes!
What we love most about Teck Leong Lee Kee is that they are open 7 days of the week! This means you can get your snack fix anytime you want.
4. The Biscuit Shop
Iced gem biscuits, lemon biscuits, bun biscuits, chocolate wafers… you name it, The Biscuit Shop has it.
The Biscuit Shop has a crazy assortment of old school Singaporean biscuits which they sell in tins and in small quantities (0.5kg).
