CNY 2022: Top Essentials

Canned Abalone

No reunion dinner is complete without a Four Seasons platter to usher in the Lunar New Year. Every family makes theirs differently but for those that want to add a little luxury to theirs, canned abalone is usually the piece de resistance. Have this ready on your shelves for when your customers come in to meet demand.

F&N Orange Soda

F&N orange is often the beverage of choice for CNY gatherings. Nothing tells us the new year is just around the corner more than seeing shoppers leaving the grocery store with cartons of this fizzy beverage. Restock your supply of this along with various other soft drink brands online at Dropee ahead of time.

Pineapple Tarts

Adored by both young and old, you’ll definitely find a home with an ample supply of this quintessential CNY pastry. Perfect for all-day snacking during the festive seasons, we’re certain that customers will be snapping these up to fill their snack trays. Be sure to have this in your store.

Ferrero Rocher

Ferrero Rocher isn’t a traditional CNY treat, but it made its mark for being a great addition to CNY hampers. These bite-sized chocolates are great post-reunion dinner treats and will surely be highly sought-after by customers doing their CNY 2022 shopping.


We’re all too familiar with the iconic Cap Tangan packaging and these shelled, salted peanuts are an elevated (and far more convenient) version of the original classic. Peanuts are a mainstay during the festivities and can be found in a variety of food items often associated with Chinese New Year such as peanut cookies, tong sui and lotus soup.


In Chinese cultures, longans are a symbol of family reunification and for many of us, this will be an especially meaningful theme after two years of enduring lockdowns and restricted movement controls. Boiled in a tea accompanied by red dates or peeled and eaten directly, dried longans are a must-have for many Chinese during the Lunar New Year. Have them in store and get ready to watch them fly off the shelves.

Red Dates

Another auspicious ingredient that is a Chinese New Year staple is none other than the red date. In Chinese cultures, red dates are symbolic of wealth, prosperity, and fertility. They are often added into desserts, used to sweeten soups or simply enjoyed on their own. We’re certain that customers will be stocking up on this ingredient so have them available on your shelves!

Tiger Beer [Non-Halal]

Here in Malaysia, Tiger Beer has become synonymous with this thanks to its infamous 2021 campaign. For non-Muslim Malaysians, Tiger Beer can be a great addition to your open house parties.

The sale of alcohol is strictly for non-Muslim individuals above the age of 21. By virtue of Section 19 (1) and Section 19 (2) of the Syariah Criminal Offences Act 1997, all Malaysian Muslims are forbidden from buying and imbibing alcohol. In accordance to the legal provisions above, Dropee.com will not sell any alcoholic products listed on its website to Malaysian Muslims.
