Make your Chinese New Year house visits and gift-giving the talk of the town with whimsical bak kwa gift packages from Hock Wong Foodstuff that make for great conversation starters.
The awesome Chinese New Year gift package comes with Hock Wong‘s brilliant new idea of putting together three-dimensional cut-out caricatures of Five mythological Chinese Gods of Luck — featuring the God of Blessing (福 Fu), God of Prosperity (禄 Lu), God of Longevity (寿 Shou), God of Happiness (喜 Xi), and God of Fortune (財 Cai).
Packed inside each of the eye-catching gift boxes is one of the most popular Lunar New Year treats for the season — Bak Kwa, or Chinese traditional pork jerky.
The leading Hock Wong brand, originating from Malaysia has more than a decade-long of history and experience in the bak kwa business. With presence in key cities of Malaysia include Kuala Lumpur and Johor Bahru, Hock Wong also runs a factory in Singapore and produces the original recipe of its traditional bak kwa to satisfy customers from all the world.
At Hock Wong, a rigorous process is followed from the selection of raw ingredients to the preparation and packaging of its bak kwa. Each slice of bak kwa is individually wrapped and vacuum-sealed as soon as the meat cools off from the grill, ensuring the moisture and flavour are locked in, while retaining the charred aroma.
This process preserves the freshness of the pork jerky — keeping it soft and succulent, while the handy packaging cut back on any oily fuss and muss.
Using a traditional and proprietary recipe, Hock Wong‘s bak kwa offerings are made with a fine balance of lean and fatty pork and a secret marinade of honey and various aromatics; and char-grilled for a subtle smoky flavour with a complete harmony of sweet and savoury.
Fans of the classic bak kwa should try the Minced Pork Bak Kwa ($33 per 600g / $49 per kg), while those looking for a more quintessential chew and extra indulgence can opt for the premium cut of Barbecued Bacon Bak Kwa ($48 per 600g / $72 per kg), available only in limited quantities and while stocks last.

What I liked most about Hock Wong‘s bak kwa is that the jerky is tender and succulent — it is also pre-cut into small slices which makes it easy to enjoy the delicious and indulgent treat!
The shelf life of Hong Wong‘s bak kwa can be kept up to two months from the date of production as listed on the packaging. If you are hopping on a plane for a holiday soon or visiting friends overseas, these delectable bak kwas are just what you need — perfect for snacking and gifting!
