How To Snack Healthier And Live For More Years!


Sometimes it seems the greatest conflict stems from wanting to snack out but also desiring to see your toes when you look down.

Wanting to snack is human nature but so is the desire to keep healthy. And  you know what? That’s fine, you should be able to have your cake and eat it too (provided that the cake in question is served in reasonable slices).

These two wants are not mutually exclusive, and here at Shopback, we’ve teamed up with Boxgreen to provide you a healthy alternative to your late night snacking.

Macritchie Midnight instead of Rocky Road

I know the temptation is unbearable, you want to feel the chunk of frozen dairy swirl it’s way into delectable dollops of dewy chocolate that slithers its way down your throat, coating it with a satisfyingly creamy sheen of chocolatey paint.

Resist the urge! Think of the next day, when you wake up with a tub of ice cream lying smugly at your side, hardening crumbs of ice cream guiltily clinging onto the sides of your mouth, your pants just a tad tighter.

Avoid the morning after lethargy by protecting yourself with a bowl of Macritchie Midnight.

Consisting a scrumptious blend of dark chocolate nibs, whole hazenuts, dried cranberries and pumpkin seeds, The Macritchie Midnight fills your palette with a sinewy smoothness of dark chocolate while you munch down on wildly differing infusions of taste from hazelnuts, cranberries and pumpkin seeds.

Sit back and relax as deliciousness ensues.

Cheng Tng (No Ice) instead of regular Cheng Tng

It’s SG50 and you might be driven into a nostalgia fueled pursuit of traditional Singaporean food. Cheng Tng, a sweet desert that definitely falls under the jurisdiction of Singapore’s past is a great snack while watching a midnight marathon of Chinese matinees.

But not only is Cheng Tng delicious, it is hassleicious (not a real word) as well. You have to get all the ingredients together, boil it, stew for a bit then add ice to the whole kerfuffle. Ah, redundant much?

Enjoy a healthier and minimalist version of your favourite cold snack with Cheng Tng (No Ice).

As the parenthesis suggests, a noticeable departure from the traditional snack comes in the form of removing ice… and water and boiling.

A refreshing mix of dried longan, crispy lotus seed and goji berry, carefully pieced together to offer a unique but equally delicious variant of the well known snack.

It’s healthier than its predecessor as well, being high in antioxidants, low in cholesterol and having absolutely no preservatives at all.

Pina Okinawa instead of a bowl of assorted nuts

Nuts are one of nature’s most sneakiest food groups, they have that warm inviting aura about them. You know what i mean, that “shovel as much of my brethren as you can fit inside your mouth” vibe that they give out.

We get taken in by their facade too, scooping up handfuls of them at one go, what’s the harm right? And just like that, the Macadamia nut has taken a vice grip on your diet.

Why not try a benevolent helping of Pina Okinawa instead?

An intriguing mix of Edomame and dices of pineapples, the Pina Okinawa meshes the lightness of the edomame with a back current of sweetness from the dashes of pineapple.

As addictive as any assortment of nuts but without the calories and baggage that comes along with its salty compatriot. The Pina Okinawa is the perfect snack to munch on without feeling any pang of guilt.

Soya Crisps instead of Chips

Chips have done a marvelous job infiltrating the snack tables of any and every family from here to Timbuktu.

We all know the problems with excessive snacking on chips, the salty residue left behind our fingertips a stern reminder of our transgressions, evidence which we dourly lick up for fear of judgement,

There just hasn’t been a clear alternative to snacking culture for chips… until now

How about a packet of Soya Crisps to satiate your nerves from that doozy of a cliffhanger?

Made with Soya and seasoned with a heavenly combination of chives, garlic and soy sauce power. Relish in the taste rivaling any chips on the market while staying healthy throughout the feast of crisps.
