Cheap! Cheap!

Saturday, August 10, 2013

For a long time now, I have not bought Ferrero Rocher chocolates because I refuse to pay 40c or more per piece. Today, I went on a rampage:

My precious!

Price: S$ 4.80 for 5 packets (3 pieces per packet). 32c a piece! Cheap!

This is a National Day deal at The Cocoa Tree.

If you have a weakness for chocolates like I have, must be fast hands fast legs hor. ;p

(Not an advertorial but it is a fantastic deal!)

too sweet for me now.. haha..
too bad they never have promotion for the rondnoir (the dark choc version)

Hi pero,

I actually like dark chocolate more but not the ones by Ferrero. Not so nice. Don't ask me why. Taste is very personal. ;)

You are too young to stop liking sweet stuff lah. ;p

Wah lau , you confirmed will not buy a piece of macaroon for $3++...I bought a box of 7 the other day from Laduree.

so the taking stock of my austerity drive at end of 4 weeks $1k plus went to discretionary shopping....bad came to 2k....imagine if I have not enforce control via daily monitoring .,....tsk tsk...I need more discipline like u.

Hi Garfield,

I only had Macarons once in my life and they were not even "cheap". You might want to see this: Tea with AK71: Macarons.

LOL. ;p

I am not suitable for chocolates. Pimples will always pop out like volcanoes even chewing on a small piece of chocolate. :(

Hi AK,

A box of 36 costs $9.90 or $10.90 when it is on sale in NTUC or Guardian, I think. That would work out to $0.275 or $0.303 per pc. :P

Anyway, I'm no longer a Rocher fan after tasting something better when I was in Vienna last year. It's manufactured by the same company but can't recall what the name was. I brought home a dozen packs and ate in instalments like 1 pc a day so that they didn't run out too quickly and I wouldn't put on too much weight. LOL~

But thanks for flagging out a good deal and nice to see you indulging yourself in something sooooo expensive! :P

Hi INVS 2.0,

Oh, I know what you mean. Not for young and promising men like you. ;p

Actually, chocolates are bad for me too. My tummy pops out (but not like volcanoes thankfully). :(

Hi Endrene,

Eeeeks! Are you sure? NTUC Fairprice and Guardian selling at $9.90 or $10.90 for a box of 36?

Actually, I have seen boxes of 16, 24, 30, 32 and even 48 but I have never seen a box of 36. What does it look like?

I was just in NTUC Fairprice recently and was still telling my sis that the Ferrero Rocher is not cheap enough. This is traumatising. :(

I have two big weaknesses when it comes to food: chocolates and ice cream. When there are super discounts, they become even more irresistible. ;p

Er... by same manufacturer? Giotto? I am not a Ferrero Rocher fan per se but I do enjoy it. :)

EY said...

Hi AK,

o.Oh, I could have mistaken the 30s pack for 36s? I remember there are 6 rows and the box is squarish. So maybe it's 30 pcs but I know once in a while it is sold for $9.90 at NTUC. Currently the Old Gold dark chocolate by Cadbury is sold at $9.95 for 2 packs instead of $6.80each. :)

Hey, thanks for the reminder. Yes, it's Ferrero Giotto! You know where to get it in Singapore? This one ranks No.1 on my chocolate list. I'm in chocolate heaven! :D


AK71 said...

Hi Endrene,

I have not seen any worthwhile special offer for Ferrero Rocher at NTUC Fairprice in a long time. ;p

Where to get Giotto? You have asked the right person. LOL. Candy Empire stocks it. I think the one in the basement of Vivo City might be convenient for you.

I used to go to Candy Empire at Vivo City very often when I was staying in D3. I went again recently and got my Hanuta fix. I don't know if you have tried Hanuta. I love it. ;p

Garfield75 said...


Yah not cheap that is why I said you will not buy it lol....I got my colleagues to buy from France before Laduree was available in is heavenly if it is stored well and made with good ingredients.

I spent hundreds of dollars on ingredients and cookbooks trying to perfect it, though I have succeeded it, I think buying off the shelf is still much easier ;) .....this was once my indiscretional behavior once which caused over spending....hahaha. 五分钟热情。

I saw your post...all smashed up....what a pity!

AK71 said...

Hi Garfield,

All smashed up. TNT = Take N Throw. LOL.

Free. Didn't cost me anything. Cannot complain.

Even smashed up, they were really yummy. I am sure these things are really high calorie yum yums.

I had 6 Ferrero Rochers, 1 mooncake and half a tube of Pringles today. I am satisfied. ;p

Garfield75 said...

Wah you need to add a pouch to your avatar;) mooncake? I thought the seventh month just started?

Calories r not an issue for me...cos I am an exercise freak and i am obsessed with looking good....haha...going to the gym will also help to curb excessive shopping;)

AK71 said...

Hi Garfield,

A pouch? Like a kangaroo? ;p

I always tell people I am old, fat and ugly. People don't believe me. :(

The avatar was an idealised me. LOL.
