What's my Say!?
Salted Egg has been a popular flavor in Singapore for the past few years and many people would also get for snacks that include these flavors too such as the salted egg fish skin and others. Here, today I'm going to compare both Golden Duck (which is popular within my circle of friends) and Irvins Salted Egg fish skin (because it is one of the more popular local snacks in Singapore).

Comparing these two brand's salted egg fish skin, both have their very own value for their customer to decide on their purchase. I think TGD's version beats Irvins when it comes to the softness that is also crispy at the same time. Irvin's version is crispy but it's slightly harder and rough in terms of the texture. TGD wins over for letting elderly much its snacks! Irvin's packaging wins over TGD, not only because of it's professional dangerously addictive graphic but also the convenient and easy to peel packaging. Compare to TGD, we find it harder to open the packaging.

TGD taste a lot creamier than Irvins. Irvins curry leaves fragrance is alot richer than TGD. Which would you prefer? Creamier or more Curry leaf flavorings? Both of the brands are very well-made in terms of the oil control, it doesn't make us feel super oily or heatty.

Verdict: Both me and my friend Janice preferred the not so creamy taste one, Tadah! Irvins Salted Egg Fish Skin is our first and Best choice!!! It's a MUST TRY in Singapore!
