Vegetarian Gummy Bears- YES Natural Retail Store at Geylang

After getting the baked goodies from the bakery, we hopped next door again to YES Natural retail shop! It was slightly bigger than the one at Clementi and we saw new items that fascinated us!

OMG! Finally we found tahini $9.50 in Singapore. I’ve been roasting and blending tahini at home and always wished for some instant store bought ones but to no avail even after searching high and low in all the upmarket super markets in Singapore.

We also found a great substitute for sugar and honey, I have always wondered where to buy this in Singapore after seeing it countless times on vegan baking blogs. Agave Nectar– (pronounced ah-GAH-vay) is best recognized as the plant from which tequila is made, it has also been used for thousands of years as an ingredient in food. The nectar made from the plant is known in Mexico as aguamiel, or “honey water” and we would like to call it plant honey.

Agave nectar (sometimes called agave syrup) is most often produced from the Blue Agaves that thrive in the volcanic soils of Southern Mexico. Agaves are large, spikey plants that resemble cactus or yuccas in both form and habitat, but they are actually succulents similar to the familiar Aloe Vera.

The taste of agave nectar is comparable, though not identical, to honey. Many people who do not like the taste of honey find agave a more palatable choice. It also has none of the bitter aftertaste associated with artificial sweeteners.

Hubby Ro spotted this and I immediately associated it with the chewy gummy bears we used to eat. The sad part is most gummy bears sold contains gelatin. The truth about gelatin rhymes with skeleton—because that’s exactly what it is—animal bones (along with animal skin, hooves, tendons, ligaments, and cartilage all boiled together into a goo that’s added to all kinds of candy and baked goods). Thankfully there are better alternatives that brings no harm to animals. And this vegetarian gummy bear $29.90 is not only free of this but is packed with vitamins too.

The last item we spotted were a series of fun noodles $5.20 for each packet! We found the mushroom noodles very interesting. In the pack, it was divided into shiitake mushroom, brazil mushroom, oyster mushroom and black fungus noodles and they each have a different colour. While the fruit noodles had strawberry, black currant, elderberry and raspberry flavour. The noodles are free from colouring, synthetic flavourings, sugar or preservatives, Non- GMO and made of sea salt, filtered water, and powder from each fruit!

We can shop for these items at their store or on their online shop!

    • Hi There!

      Thank you for dropping by our blog and for letting us know about Nature’s Glory! Definitely going to check that out soon. Are there any products there you have bought before that is suitable for vegans?

      Cheers,
      Roland & Priscilla

      • You can take a look at their website, but some items may not be available at their store. Some of the items that I have bought include wheat berries, beans, flax seed, black strap molasses, honey and carrots for juicing.

      • Cool! We are definitely going to stock up on flax seed and wheat berries! Sounds yummy and we cannot wait to start baking some vegan goodies too. Thanks again for your input.
