JUNE 1ST’s EGG ROLL COOKIES
In modern China, the number ‘8’ is associated with wealth. ‘Eight’ in Chinese is pronounced ‘ba’ and sounds similar to ‘fa,’ meaning “well-off” or “getting rich in a short time.” This is why ‘8’ is said to invite great wealth. And what way can we invite great wealth by savouring cookies with an 8-shaped twist? Renowned Taiwanese brand June 1st delights with their patented figure 8-shaped cookies with original, sesame, and chocolate egg roll flavors.
Make sure to order this special June 1st Lunar New Year Egg Roll Cookie Gift Box, and receive it in time for the holiday to share this special treat with your loved ones.
