One of hubby’s colleagues recently introduced us to Garden Picks which is a snack supplier that sells dried fruits, seeds, nuts and crisps.
There is free delivery with purchase of S$50 & above so he combined purchase with the rest of the peeps in the office and ordered these two packs of crisps.
The Honey Mustard Soya Crisps (S$9.50/400g pack) were amazing! Shaped like miniature churros, these super addictive soya crisps were firm (like hard biscuits) yet crunchy. I loved the honey mustard powder that enveloped the crisps – sweet, salty and just so yummy. Though these were fried in oil, they didn’t feel greasy to the touch at all. Highly recommended product!
The BBQ Rice Crisps (S$4.50/200g pack) tasted exactly like Japanese style rice crackers with a deep shoyu flavour. Couldn’t really taste any hint of BBQ seasoning because the soy sauce was rather overpowering. I liked how crunchy these rice crisps were yet the inside remained light and puffy. A very decent treat!
In terms of pricing, Garden Pick’s products are generally 15-30% more expensive than what we could get at the wholesale centre. For example, USA Golden Raisins are sold at S$7/kg at the Albert Centre Wholesale Market and they are priced at S$9 per kg at Garden Picks. Raw almonds are about S$17/kg at Albert Centre and are sold at S$19.50/kg at Garden Picks.
One advantage of getting dried fruits and nuts via Garden Picks is the time and hassle it will save us when we need to restock our supply. Make use of the free delivery so our box of snacks can be delivered right to our doorstep within 3 working days. Besides that, there are also many other products that are not commonly sold elsewhere like Dry Roasted Green Soybeans, Mexican Salsa Cashews, Cinnamon Almonds, Tiramisu Almonds, Coconut Chips, Crispy Lotus Seeds and more. If you’re looking for healthy food products, they also have chia seeds, flaxseeds, quinoa and oats. Unless you’re buying in bulk (a kilogram or so), then obviously the wholesale centre is a better choice as they tend to reduce prices for bigger purchases. Otherwise, if you’re just thinking of getting a few smaller handy packs that you can snack on as and when at home or in the office, I think Garden Picks’ offerings are pretty value for money too compared with similar products from specialty shops or supermarkets.
Quality products, good variety, neat packaging with clear labels (country of origin is also stated), reasonable prices. What are you waiting for? 😉
