Satisfy Your Travel Cravings with Overseas Snacks

Our pre-pandemic trips were never complete without stopping by local stores to stock up our suitcases with unique snacks and pre-packaged food. It’s no secret that we’ve found ourselves dreaming of the coming days when we can start to travel and munch on delicious food again. As a response to the covid-19 pandemic and travel restrictions, people have found new ways to satisfy their travel fix. How? Through groupbuys specifically! Groupbuys have risen as a trend in Singapore and are increasing in popularity.

What is Group Buy?

​​For those of you who are new to this concept - estate group buys are consolidated community purchases for everything under the sun - from groceries, food to even snacks imported from across the borders. Shop On Pickupp started their own groupbuy last year with a variety of well-known bakeries such as Rich and Good Cake Shop, Bakery Brera, Hiap Joo Bakery’s Banana cakes from Malaysia & more. Learn more about how our groupbuy works and why we’re the top groupbuy host in Singapore. To address the demand for overseas products and snacks, along with our special connection and partnership with distributors and importers from all over the world, we’ve decided to import snacks to you on a regular basis so that you can have access to a large selection of authentic snacks without a hefty price tag. We started out by bringing in snacks and goodies from Taiwan such as Chia Te Bakery’s Pineapple Cakes, Saint Paul Q Cakes etc and the response was overwhelming. Since then, we’ve gotten numerous requests to bring in more products that you’ve been dying to lay your hands on from various countries… and now, your wish has been granted.
