I love YAN YAN

I'm sure most of Malaysians have come across this yummy and lip-smacking YAN YAN in their childhood.



It was my favourite, and still is! Whenever I go to the Asian grocery store, I would look for them and take some home.

When I was in Christchurch couple of months ago, I couldn't help going into Asian store for YAN YAN. It is commonly known that Asian grocery stores in Christchurch have much more varieties and at much cheaper prices as compared to those in Wellington. So, the search began, hoping to get a sight on the usual coco and strawberry ones.

My eyes almost popped out when I saw all these different flavours of YAN YANs on the rack, for the first time! It was not just like "seeing oasis in the desert" but "seeing an BIG oasis full of cokes, 7-ups, ribenas".

I couldn't help but grabbed them ALL!!!



Got Banana & Chocolate lar, Orange lar, Milk lar and even Green Tea! (0_0)!! They probably been around for ages, but me so "suaku" that I had never before seen!





I wonder...if there is anymore flavour out there....*search search search*

Doreen said...

winn:
Dunno LB leh, he probably slept through his childhood. Hehehe

keeyit:
So some of these flavours also not available in HK? I wonder if these Yan Yan are from China/Taiwan. Aiya, too late, I finished them all already. Can't check.

jayce:
Yeah, I guess most of us grow up with Yan Yan and I can see myself still licking that when I'm 80 years old. Muahahaha
