Blissful Delight is a sponge cake with brown sugar, dark rum, egg, prune paste and dried prunes. This special seasonal menu from BreadTalk is a light sponge cake that contains alcohol with visible chunks of dried prunes.
This cake is named as 枣到幸福 which is a pun using the Chinese character of prune. It translates to finding your other half soon or happiness. The amount of alcohol is not enough to make one tipsy. It might help to distract visiting relatives from popping nosy questions year after year like a broken record machine.

Besides the cakes, Breadtalk also have some cny breads that are inspired by the year of OX. For this year 2021, they have 5 types of CNY bread to turn the year around and make it better than 2020, as seen from their 5 bread slogan 牛转乾坤 again a pun on the word ox.
Prosperity Duo is a crusty almost biscuit like bread with a strong butter flavour. It comes in a set of two, one large and one small bread in the shape of ox horns.
These are great breakfast dip bread with a cup of hot kopi O to best enjoy the buttery flavour. Butter with coffee is one of the best combo.
Bak Kwa Delight is a soft type of milk bread with bites of barbequed pork, mayo, seaweed and the aroma of black and white sesame. Although BreadTalk is famous for its pork floss bread, this bak kwa delight seems to be quite a popular item too.
Bak kwa is one of the must eat finger snack during lunar new year. The display somehow reminds one of a herd of Oxes with the specially designed bread tag.
Best eaten with a cup of tea to cut the grease of the bak kwa but definitely feels festive with the addition of bak kwa to bread.
