We got lost in this (almost) everything-for-$2 store and found plenty of food and drink to tide us over a zombie apocalypse. We are also giving away a hamper full of the Daiso eats we feature: it is packed with more than 30 goodies such as crackers, candies, green tea and more. [TO WIN] Spot the HungryGoWhere logo in this photo gallery and send us the link of the photo, your full name, contact details and IC or passport number to firstname.lastname@example.org. *Those take part must be Singapore residents.
CALORIE BALANCE BARS | It comes in "fruit", maple and chocolate flavours.
BANANA CHIPS IN BROWN SUGAR | Tastes a little stale-oil to us, but the banana flavouring is there. That said, we couldn’t stop.
STRAWBERRY MILK POPCORN | It comes in a pop-noodles container, and is filled with artificial strawberry flavouring. Hey, you get what you pay for, right?
CONSOMME CORN | We’re not sure what this means, but we suspect it is plain old popped corn.
SHRIMP CRACKERS | Flat disc-like shrimp crackers. You get three for $2
CUTTLEFISH RICE SNACKS | Say what you will about the strong cuttlefish aroma and the salty coating, but we’re addicted.
RICE CRACKERS | More crackers. These are sweet and spicy rice crackers.
SEAWEED FOR HANDROLLS | Seven pieces in each pack, perfect for that packed lunchbox. They sell rice here too, the individually-portioned (cooked) microwaveable kind.
MIXTURE OF SEVERAL KINDS OF BONITO FLAKES | Add this to your takeaway takopachi (octopus balls) from the Ion Food basement, or to top on your rice.
OTSUMAMI RUSK (CHEESE TASTE) | These are croutons, really. To add on to your salad leaves.
SOBA NOODLES | Two dollars for a packet, which will last you a couple of servings. The dipping sauce is just around the corner.
SEASONED DRIED FISH AND CUTTLEFISH | From their "premium range", these are dried fish sheets or "fish jerky"
KELP SOUP STOCK | A little bit of kelp adds a lot of flavour to any soup stock.
TOKYO NOODLES | On the back, it says these are “seasoned deep-fried instant Chinese noodles”. Comes in (left to right) kimchi, ebisio tonkotsu (prawns with a pork broth base) and chicken flavours.
GREEN TEA POWDER | Suitable for hot or cold drinks and for making dessert.
KOMBUCHA | Fermented kelp tea. It’s good for you.
LEMON JUICE | Flavouring, really.
CUPCAKE | True-blue cupcakes: these can be baked in the microwave, and in cups. Vanilla and chocolate flavours available.
COFFEE FLAVOUR COATED PEANUTS | It’s more sugar than coffee flavouring on these nuts. An alternative to kacang puteh (sugar-coated nuts sold traditionally by the nuts seller), for sure.
SEASONED TINNED FISH | This is like broiled Pacific saury and mackerel fish. Just open and consume as is. Or you might want to take them out of the tin can and heat them up first.
NATURAL CUT POTATO | Chips. Dry, crunchy chips that come in various seasonings.
CHOCO FLAKES | These come in packs of three. Good for portion control.
MILK CANDY | For when you need a tiny sugar rush.
ASSORTED MISO PASTES | When there is miso, make soup.
TOHATO CARAMEL CORN | We can’t stop popping these. Fortunately, these also come as (smaller) three-packs-in-one that lets you control your portions.
PAI-CRO | Croissants in a bag? These come in regular and chocolate flavours.
SALAD DRESSING | Shiso (green perilla) and onion dressings are among the limited selection.
ASSORTED CANDY | Japanese candies in every imaginable flavour.
PRETZELS, BLACK PEPPER TASTE | These are what they claim on the packaging.
BROWN RICE TEA | You’ll even find disposable, fill-them-yourself teabags to brew this.
