Goodness knows in this time-short lifestyle that I live, that I love the convenience of instant, but rarely do I come across ready-prepared foods (besides fruit in its own handy package) that I’d actually eat. Youmee Noodles however, are Malaysia’s first all-natural instant noodles, made solely from flour, salt, and water, then air-dried. They’re free from MSG, preservatives, food additives, colourings, and chemicals. Yippee for Youmee!
Volare is a homegrown artisanal ice cream made from local ingredients. With a focus on high quality natural components, the ice cream is so dense that they have to hand fill the containers manually! Serawa Durian, utilising the Musang King is a popular local flavour, but my sweet dream is the rich, creamy, dreamy Double Chocolate.
Selling raw, vegan, gluten-free desserts, Freaking Wholesome makes sweet treats guilt-free.
