Working from home means not being able to access the office pantry filled with snacks and tidbits. For when mid-day hunger kicks in, or if you need of a pick-me-up to get through the work slump, turn to these convenient snack delivery options that’ll keep your belly happy… until it’s time for the next meal. An added bonus: most places stock up on healthier alternatives, which means you can indulge without the guilt.

The Swedish idea of ‘fredagsmys’ is something we can all easily get behind. The term loosely translates to ‘cosy Fridays’ – a Nordic concept where the usual crazy night out is replaced with a calmer, more intimate affair at home. And to get into the spirit of fredagsmys requires unwinding on the sofa while enjoying comfort food and some favourite snacks. 

Try Swedish, an export program that spotlights Swedish food and beverage products hopes to champion this softer approach of welcoming the weekend in Singapore – particularly so during this stay-home period. To plan for a cosy Friday of your own, head over to the Try Swedish Shop on Redmart. There, you will find a slew of products to help set a soothing scene: sip on the popular Oatly oat milk ($6.85) as you slice into a ready-to-eat Daim Chocolate Cake ($9.90). Those in a savoury mood can nibble on Wasa sandwich snack ($1.95), or smear Arla spiced cream cheese ($5.40) on some addictive rye crisps ($7), washed down with premium natural mineral water from Åre Water.

The nuts from homegrown brand Nötter are unlike the usual trail mix. Each batch comes baked at low temperature to retain all the natural health benefits and comes mixed with a slew of other superfoods. Try the Immunity Mix ($7.90), with freeze-dried pineapples, almonds, walnuts, pecans, and pumpkin seeds; or have the nuts tossed in ginger powder with the Nourish Mix ($7.90). Can’t choose? Get it in a specially curated bundle set (from $49), which comes thoughtfully packaged in a minimalist box that doubles up as an elegant and convenient gift option.

Breakfast might be the most important meal of the day, but there’s no reason why Amazin' Graze’s granola can’t be enjoyed in between meals as well. To make it more convenient to snack on, all-natural ingredients of rolled oats and honey are made into granola bites that you can sample in its variety box ($15.90). It comes in flavours of chocolate hazelnut, blueberry coconut, coconut kaya, and banana bread portioned into snack-sized servings. If you aren’t a fan of breakfast food, opt for its nut selection that comes plain ($4.90), or mixed with sweet chilli ($5.90), maple glaze ($5.90), and pandan coconut ($5.90).

ICC Kids

The Ice Cream and Cookie Co. Founder Natasha Chiam found out that most snacks for children are often laced with preservatives and come highly processed, so the mother started making her own healthy treats for her son instead. With that came ICC Kids, with wholesome snacks that are good and tasty enough for everyone in the family. Highlights include the vegan banana zucchini muffin ($22 for 12) and egg-free carrot cake muffin ($22 for 12). But our favourite is definitely the brownies ($22 for eight) – fudgy and decadent, but still chock full of healthy ingredients. It’s made with over 40 percent zucchini – a great way to sneak in some greens while snacking. There’s also the Kid’s Ice Cream range ($16.95), in flavours of vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry, which is made with organic fresh milk and reduced sugar.

And if you’re a serial snacker, consider building your own snack box ($9.90) that comes with five different options.

Even the nut butter comes jazzed up too, with lavender pistachio ($20.90), cinnamon pecan ($17.90), and rosemary almond ($13.90) that’s good enough to be enjoyed simply on its own.

Fupi

Fupi first crept into the local snack scene during the Chinese New Year period, and started making waves with its adorable packaging and unique beancurd skin crisps. Its two flavours of Sichuan Mala and Hot to Tomato are inspired by classic hotpot flavours, and were previously only available at its pop-up at Vivocity. It has since ramped up its online presence, so you can lay hands on this local snack via online platforms Shopee and Lazada. A bundle of four (with two flavours each) goes for $22.

With Love, Gretel

Compared to a regular bag of nuts, the cashews from With Love, Gretel are sprouted, kickstarting the germination process. It believes that this helps break down the nuts more quickly during digestion, resulting in better nutrient absorption. Try them plain (from $3.50 fro 50g), or dusted with Himalayan pink salt, or coated with sriracha ginger honey for a spicy kick.
