Bite-sized, portable versions of Mala Xiang Guo
It's one of life's greatest mysteries why we love the things that hurt us. We still haven't found an explanation for our Mala mania. Even when our tongue burns, and we wish we could wash it down with the tears welling up in our eyes, we still stuff another mouthful of that spicy noodles. If you're like us, and often crave that fragrant explosion of flavours, good news! You can have Mala all day, every day, by munching on these unique Mala-flavoured snacks. Stock them up in your office and kitchen cupboard - you'll thank yourself when you wake up feeling hot at 3am.

2. Shihlin Taiwan Mala popcorn chicken
Warning: this one is not for the faint-hearted. Our favourite Taiwanese snacks brand Shihlin has come up with an extremely explosive Mala-flavoured pop chicken, it’s been dubbed Singapore’s HOTTEST chicken product. Indeed, it has defeated even those of us with high spice tolerance! Made with premium chicken thigh, the snack is tender and juicy. To keep the flavours fresh, the Mala powder is packed in a separate, individual sachet pack, for you to pour all over the popcorn chicken and shake it all together. Shihlin has even thoughtfully provided a bottle of Alkaline water, sold as a set with the chicken, for you to relieve the heat when you snack. And trust us, you’ll need it.
Hurry out and get the Mala popcorn chicken at your nearest Shihlin outlet – it’s available for a limited time only!
