HOW HEALTHY ARE CNY SNACKS?

#ICYMI, Internet-speak for in case you missed it, ST Food put together an interactive quiz last year on how healthy your favourite Chinese New Year snacks are.

Want to know how long it takes to burn off the calories from one pineapple tart? What about that delicious charred piece of honeyed bak kwa? The quiz also has information about the sugar and fat content of other goodies such as kueh bangkit and love letters. CNY snacks quiz: http://str.sg/oiAK

CHICKEN SKIN TREATS

The New Paper's Yeoh Wee Teck has put together a list of five places for cheap, crispy and crunchy chicken skin.

His recommendations include Mat Noh & Rose Chicken Rice at Whampoa Makan Place, where the chicken skin is marinated in hand-pounded ginger and garlic, then deep-fried. At Alter Ego, which is located at the Esplanade Mall, the chicken skin is spicy and crunchy.

Chicken skin may not be the healthiest of dishes, so please eat in moderation. Chicken skin fix: http://str.sg/owwi
