Hari Raya Aidilfitri 2021 will be yet another challenge for all Muslims, given we’re still in the thick of a pandemic and we have only just started to return to our offices recently. This year, I believe, will be a challenge in balancing work and home life, especially when some of us are still working at home and are required to tend to our domestic responsibilities at the same time.
Even as we attempt to overcome these obstacles, it’s relieving to know that companies, such as SCS, are there to cushion the blow of time restraints and equip us with buttery cookies and pineapple tarts that’ll have your guests clamouring for more, when they drop by your house during Raya.
Now, there’s one less thing to stress about, especially when a crowd-favourite brand like SCS—celebrated for its velvety rich butter, spread, and cheeses—is offering delicious Raya goodies, exclusively available at NTUC FairPrice, FairPrice Finest, FairPrice Xtra and FairPrice Online.
What I tried
There’s no better way to start than with SCS Butter Cookies Original (S$14.90, 235g), dainty, crumbly swirls of melt-in-your-mouth goodness that’ll have you popping more than just a few at a time. What I revelled in most was the delicate dance of balancing rich butter and sweetness, that dissolved effortlessly on the palate.
Keep this tin close; it’ll likely be the target of prying eyes.
What’s Hari Raya without pineapple tarts? Back by popular demand, SCS Pineapple Tarts (S$18.90, 330g; S$22.90, 435g) makes a comeback to delight your senses. Encased in a buttery and flaky pastry, its core will greet you with a complex sweet-tart pineapple jam, ready to add joy and a burst of flavour to the celebration.
What I truly appreciate, however, is the ideal ratio of dough to pineapple jam—a precarious balance that many others have failed to achieve. One or the other doesn’t cancel each other out, so you’ll get the best of both worlds in every bite with SCS Pineapple Tarts.
For an extra treat for you and your guests, SCS is introducing a limited edition Butter Cornflake Cookies Red Velvet (S$14.90), which will only be available from 15 April to 30 May 2021 at the abovementioned FairPrice supermarkets, while stocks last. You’re in for a real surprise with this one, especially with its pleasant soft crumble and crunchy cornflake bits.
There’s a subtle earthy depth that differentiates it from regular butter cookies, making this a strong contender for those who prefer less saccharine cookies—but with all the same buttery goodness that SCS is renowned for.
Just when you thought you’d have to stress about finding time to bake your Hari Raya cookies this year, SCS is here to ease your worries. With three dependable cookies—at such wallet-friendly prices, might I add—they are a worthy delectable treat that your friends and family will enjoy.
Be sure to head down to your nearest NTUC FairPrice, FairPrice Finest, FairPrice Xtra or the FairPrice online platform to get your hands on a tin today. Also, remember, the Butter Cornflake Cookies Red Velvet will only be on sale for a limited time, so grab yours early!
Expected damage: From S$14.90 per tin
