When I was growing up, there weren't as many snacks as there are today as Singapore imports back then were not as extensive.
Remember the prettiest snacks called iced gems ? They were plain and tiny little biscuits but what every kid loved was the icing on top. I used to bite off the icing first before crunching on the biscuit. The naughtiest kids even left the biscuit behind after cleaning off the top.
Haven't eaten these iced gems for a while but today, I saw them at the supermarket and just had to get them for old times sake. My younger kid was quite taken in by their colour and bit off the icing on top first before eating the biscuit. Just like mummy !
