Snack: Bao Gong Numb & Sore Flavour Peanuts

So the last time I posted about my favourite Huang Fei Hong Spicy Peanuts, which I’ve only seen selling in Singapore at Yue Hwa and another small shop in Yishun.

This time, I found another mala peanuts at NTUC Yishun!

Not Huang Fei Hong, but also another historical character, Justice Bao (Bao Gong 包公)!

I guess it’s because this product is from Henan’s City of Kaifeng (河南开封), where Justice Bao was appointed at.
