The Simpler Times | Nostalgic Malaysian Childhood Snacks

Oh, those were the days. We can talk for a long time every time we walk down memory lane to relive our childhood. It is, for the most part, one of the best days of our lives.

What are your strongest childhood memories? For Cik Min, it is spending my wang saku on delicious snacks after school.

Favorite Childhood Snacks

These old-time snacks were a big part of why our adolescent years were filled with fun and happy memories. Here are some of Cik Min’s personal favorites:

  • Ice Pops

This 90s childhood favorite is becoming increasingly difficult to find these days. However, ice pops are simple to make in long plastic bags. Just pour in flavored drinks such as Milo, sour plum, and orange and pop them into your fridge.

  • Lemon tablets

Lemon tablets are citrusy, sweet tablets that melt in your mouth. These tablets are flavored with lemons and licorice and made from Chinese medicine. They are similar to preserved tangerine peels in some ways.

  • Chocolate coins

These round confectionaries are popular among children. So, while a bar of chocolate is relatively easy to obtain nowadays, these were our go-to chocolate back in the day. 

  • Candy White Rabbit

Milky and creamy. This is a snack that can be eaten with the thinly veiled rice wrapper around the candy or without it. For Cik Min, I prefer it with the wrapper for the full White Rabbit experience!

  • Ice Gems Biscuit

This list would be incomplete without these multicolored ice gems biscuits. But the real question is, do you bite the biscuit or the icing first? Or are you one of those people who only eats the icing and throws away the biscuit?
