Snacks That Are Only Available During CNY

My mil went to the market in SS2 last week and bought some CNY snacks - nin koa and unshelled roasted almonds. These are my favorites and I can only eat them once a year. I've been nibbling on these roasted almonds everyday ever since.

I love the nin koa steamed and sprinkled / coated with freshly grated young coconut with a pinch of salt. This morning, I went to the sundry shop to grab a packet of grated coconut to eat with the steamed nin koa. The most I can eat are only a few spoonfuls coz they are really sweet and I will feel really 'zhai' and 'lau' if too much is eaten.
How do you like your nin koa eaten?
