Garden Picks, The Dried Fruits & Nuts Company

One of hubby’s colleagues recently introduced us to Garden Picks which is a snack supplier that sells dried fruits, seeds, nuts and crisps.

Garden Picks

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.

Garden Picks

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!

Garden Picks

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.

But…

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? 😉

    Hi, I stumbled upon your blog by chance and really enjoyed your guide on where to get the cheapest nuts in Singapore. It seems like Albert center is the cheapest place for nuts. I would like to know how you find the 1lg options on gardenpicks. Only could see 500g.

    • Hi Elijah, there are no 1kg options on Garden Picks. The prices stated here were calculated based on 500g x 2 packets. Anyway, there has been an increase of price for the almonds since I published this. If you’re keen to get 1kg packs, I suggest you check out Mustafa Centre. They have a great range of different nuts. Very fresh and much cheaper too.

        Hi, Thanks for replying me! So in your experience you found that mustafa sells the cheapest nuts? Or is it just almonds. I am interested in buying cashews and pistachios

        • I haven’t bought pistachios from Albert Centre so can’t compare prices but I always get pistachios (both shelled & unshelled) from Mustafa anyway because they are always fresh & crisp. Good value for money. For almonds, cashews, walnuts, pecan, raisins and seeds like pumpkin & sunflower, Mustafa’s prices are very competitive. I highly recommend you go check them out. Whether or not they are the cheapest in the market, they are still very reasonably priced. Also, country of origin is always stated on the packaging so you know where the nuts are from. Been buying nuts from there for almost 2 years now – never disappointed. ? The thing about Albert Centre is, stock seems to get replenished most often only during peak season like CNY because of high demand so the nuts may not always be of the same consistent quality if you go during the rest of the year.

            I see thanks! Would like to know, by any chance you know where I can bulk buy cheap oyster mushrooms?

          • No prob ? for mushrooms, best place to check out is Pasir Panjang Wholesale Market – the source that supplies to most retailers and markets in SG. Depending on the quantity you want, you can negotiate price with the vegetable sellers. My tip is to explore a few stalls and find out the price/kg, see which is cheapest and then nego your way from there. Good luck!
