When you’re bogged down by your responsibilities in school or work, have you ever craved the simpler, sweeter times in your childhood?

Or maybe you just have a hankering for the tidbits you remember snacking on except you don’t know where to get them now.

You’re in luck because there is a shop in Ang Mo Kio to take you on that trip and finally satisfy your cravings.

CookiesTalk

CookiesTalk (which sounds like it got inspiration from another shop about verbose loaves and buns), is located at one of the ground floor shops beside Yio Chu Kang Community Club.

And they have tins and tins of biscuits, chips, crackers and cookies that 80s kids would recognise, because guess what, the wholesaler who created this brand, Tat Lim Trading Company, was actually founded in 1980!

The Physical Store

You’ll have to search carefully because this place hides its wonderland of goodies.

Facebook Page Singapore Atrium Sale took a trip down to the store and this is what they posted on their Facebook page:

“Near Yio Chu Kang MRT station, beside Yio Chu Kang Community Club I came to know of this stall after my friend who owned a cafe told me he bought his stocks here. I thought it no longer exists when I reached this block because I expected a shop with many biscuits fronting the entrance but this shop looks humble from the front. The shop front looks small but they are filled with biscuits inside. The senior couple owners are very friendly.”

They’ve also confirmed that you can buy the snacks per 100g for those who just want a taste of their childhood and not a whole container of one snack.

(But if that’s exactly what you want to do, go ahead.)

The Goods

They have savoury snacks like Fishballs, Wheel Crackers and Julie’s Cheese Crackers, for prices like $1 to $2.

And sweeter treats like yam cookies, kueh bangkit and durian-flavoured cookies.

We’ve often waited for tomorrow for a meal with our family. But what if tomorrow never comes? Watch this and you'll understand:

Online Store

Guess what, you may not have guessed it from the retro and unassuming appearance of the store, but they actually have a neat store online where you can order their goods.

There, you can choose a range of quantities and packaging, starting from 0.5kg (a pack) to 3.6kg (a whole tin).
