If you want to buy snack food, candies, biscuits, chocolates, kacang putih, preserved and pickled food (jeruk), crisps, etc, you can buy from a snack and light food wholesaler and supplier instead of from department stores or hypermarkets.
The price from these suppliers are usually cheaper compared to the usual hypermarkets and grocery stores. These are 2 food suppliers located in PJ Old Town that you may want to check out if you are near the vicinity.
They sell sweets, candies, chocolates like Cadbury and endless varieties.
Most of the shops selling sweets would source from these suppliers.
Above are some preserved food like sour plum which are sold in larger packets. For Chinese New Year they also sell items like almond biscuits, fortune cookies (where from a biscuit you get a message on a piece of paper), walnut candies and other types of dry food that are suitable to be presented to hosts when visiting their homes. One can also buy some of the items from here to be used as gift hampers.
I myself bought some preserved plums, chocolates, seaweed snack and marjerin from the shop because it is cheaper than Giant and some of the things like preserved plums are more fresh from here.
