[Volume 8 Issue 5, #1724]
某日無意中喺某便利店見到呢一盒零食, 七十後或八十後嘅朋友, 你哋應該都有印象啩?? 我仲以為已經唔存在咗添, 所以突然間有一股莫名嘅好奇, 好想知道裡頭究竟會送咩盞鬼玩具咁呢?? 而且一盒都只不過係賣RM0.90, 記得三十年前都好似係RM0.60一盒, 以三十年來嘅通脹率嚟到計算, 都算係平啦!! 滿心歡喜又帶點好奇之下, 買咗一盒..
saw this sold in a convenience store the other day, those born in the 70s or 80s should remember this i believe?? i thought we won't see this anymore, hence i was rather intrigued out of a sudden, what could be the free toy inside the box now?? anyway it's just sold at RM0.90 a box, i still remember it was like RM0.60 a box 30 years ago, with the inflations (after inflations) all these years, that would be considered as cheap huh?? and so, i happily and curiously bought one box..

    4. Last time my school canteen sells this. Mostly I buy it's one friday coz friday school bus comes late. so got time to lepak at the school and canteen. That was in primary school lo.

  5. No wonder it is selling at RM0.90, the content gets shrink, LOL! But I'm disappointed to learn that the chocolate biscuits is replaced with sweet. How pathetic... they ought to retain their signature-round-cheapo chocolate balls~

    1. Was it sold at RM0.60 back then? I thought it was RM0.50?

      Anyway, kids nowadays are so spoiled they don't even bother to have Ding Dang chocolate anymore. They'll choose branded chocolate from the hypermarket.

      Delete
    2. Well time has changed and people get more innovative & competitive to create better products to make parents pay by luring the children!! The kids will see latest offers on TV and newspapers!

    3. I love to see all the food, snacks and toys being made available for today's younger generations! Good ideas, hygienic, better quality and great tastes too. I never had such nice toys and snacks at my kiddo age but anay still survived lah. Ha ha!

      Delete
    4. I made toys myself from paper and the trees & padang was my playground! When pasar malam became a hit, my toys came from there! It was my Toys R' Us!

      Delete
    2. RM0.90cents to compare with RM4.50... which quality is better?

      Nowadays, if you want better quality,we have to pay more.

      Delete
    3. Even toys RM10 one you can only play one time - broken. The kids not even to bother to play anymore, so bored with it.

      Unlike Lego, Transformers, Ben10, Kamen Rider, Fisher Price toys - costing me hundreds of dollars.

    1. Yea I definitely remember this! Used to buy very often when I was a kid, there was this old time convenient store just few shops next to my house! Cannot remember the price but it was way cheap that time!

      Delete
    2. And the things inside are so cool back then! Now, like you said, I am sure its a great disappointment. Things are getting expensive, so I am sure the stuff inside won't be as good as last time already.

      Delete
    3. So I am not surprise that you were disappointed la! Anyway, old stuff is still the best huh? We don't get what we got last time, but at least we got a good memory in our mind, right? Those were the days.......

      Delete
    4. The candies inside, you can eat... But what about the yoyo? I think you're too old to play with it already, haha! May be can give to some kids you know?

      Delete
    5. I used to buy lots of toys for my kids. But they were all thrown or given away.

      Delete
    6. I used to buy this too but now i forgot the toy that i got from it...can recall slight toy with rubber bad and swings ones....something like lastik. The rest I cant recall. But only vivid memory is using the box as a whistle/trumpet

    2. What u say is right. I dun think kids nowadays will even give a look at this box which were our treasures many years ago.

      Delete
    3. It depends. Some kids would be amazed with tiny stuff.

    4. Recently, i found the bubble which in a tube and u need to blow with a mini straw-like stick. Only 10 cents n the kids were so happy.

      Delete
    5. 90 cents for this box is quite pricey considering the quality of the item included. hmm.......

      Delete
    6. LOL.....ya lor...nowadays kids also know quality. Lauyar things they wont like.

      Delete
  14. They are taking advantage of the human psyche, primarily the emotional aspect. There is this element of surprise and excitement as to the unknown inside the box. You, my dear, fell for it but what can I say! You are normal. haha..

  15. Good morning, SK and all! I might have seen this kind before. But not now. We don't sell it. What's that? A small yoyo? Maybe it's just meant for small kids with small fingers. :)

  17. Luckily you shared here, I will ban this type of snack. I am not going to buy this for my girls. What a waste of RM090 eh!

    5. When they were still toddler, I spent a bit of money on toys. Now, I spend on buying books. Luckily my two girls value books more than toys at this stage. I am a very blessed mom.

    6. I just had lunch with my accountant and told him that I often heard horror stories from my wife about how her students' parents brought them up. They spent money in most sinful ways and their families also got wrecked with rotten kids & broken marriages.

      My conclusion: They have NO WISDOM!!!!

    7. Hot Mama has much Wisdom and knows how to make the best out of every dollar spent. I must also learn to shop my underwears and clothes online!
