Borneo sweets / chocolates / biscuits etc.

Hey, I need some authentic nibbles to take home for my work colleagues. Don't want to do the usual airport type stuff. Can anyone recommend some good local goodies I can maybe purchase in KK?

Thanks

There is chocolate factory. It also has several retail outlets around the city.

Hi,

go to Filipino Market or Gaya Street Sunday market. Check out "Kuih Cincin"=Ring biscuit. Very yummy local bites that is stuffed with peanuts. It comes in small (RM2), Medium (RM5), and Big (RM10) pack.

Thanks both. I bought some boxes of Kuih Cincin. from Eati Biti. Mixed reviews from work colleagues (think some of them very trying to be polite, lol). Have another box for some friends I'm seeing this week so I'll see what they say. Thanks again for the suggestion!
