Depending on which part of the island you live in, there are a few places. You can visit a Chinese medicinal hall near you, they usually carry them.

Otherwise, you can go to Teck Leong Lee Kee if you stay around the east side. The shop is a paradise for old school snack.
Address: Blk 122 Bedok North Street 2 #01-112
Opening Hours: 10am – 2pm (Mon – Sun)

Lastly, try shopee or q10. Several sellers sell them as well - search under Ling Mong Tablets.

Wah! Thanks, bro!
Never had thought they are selling this online!
BTW, it's actually the recent craze over the Himalayan Salted candy that reminded me of this old school fav.

Saw NEX's Isetan selling these sweets somewhere last week. They have a section near the toys dept selling all the old school titbits and toys. Brought back a lot of childhood memories.

You'll be surprised ! :smile: Prices are quite marked up .

I saw them selling these biscuits at $4.50 per pack while places like Shengsiong around $2.30.
