SINGAPORE - KiKi noodles from Taiwan, which have become an online hit with foodies in Singapore, will now be available at selected Buzz kiosks.

SPH Buzz Convenience Stores will be the first retail shop here to carry these noodles by Taiwanese restaurant chain KiKi, which specialises in Sichuan dishes.

Previously, the noodles were only available through the restaurant's local partner KiKi Fine Goods Singapore, an online retailer.

The noodles caught the attention of consumers in East Asia, from Hong Kong to Singapore, last year (2017) after it was made popular on social media by Taiwanese actress Shu Qi.

The noodles, which will hit the shelves on Thursday (Feb 1), will be available in two flavours - Aromatic Scallion and Sichuan Pepper.

A pack of five will retail at $13.70.

They will be up for grabs, while stocks last, at three Buzz outlets in Sim Lim Square, Marina Bay Link Mall and Block 5, Upper Boon Keng Road.

The noodles have been touted as a healthier alternative because they are sun-dried, unlike many other types of instant noodles, which are fried.
