[UPDATED, Sept 13]

$1 MYSTERY FLAVOUR XLB AT PLQ'S PARADISE DYNASTY

The new PLQ (Paya Lebar Quarter) mall has a slew of opening promotions, and if you're a big fan of xiao long baos (XLBs), be sure to head down this weekend.

That's because Paradise Dynasty will be unveiling a limited-edition mystery XLB flavour exclusively available at PLQ from September 14 to October 13.

According to online reviews, the dumplings are said to taste "as iconic as 101" (whatever that means) and be "savoury and slightly sweet".

If you'd like to hazard a guess at what that flavour is, try a basket of five pieces for a nominal fee of $1 (U.P: $7.80) while it's still available.

All you'll have to do is share a photo of the mystery XLB on Facebook or Instagram (set to public) and include the hashtags #paradisegrpsg, #paradisedynasty and #plqmysteryxlb.

Where: Paradise Dynastry, 10 Paya Lebar, Paya Lebar Quarter Mall #03-08, Singapore 409057

UNICORN CEREAL, CRISPY RENDANG AND CURRY PUFF FLAVOUR CHIPS

If you're a sucker for the latest food fads, you might want to check out these three new items that just hit our streets.

Want to add a little unicorn magic to your breakfast game? If you have a sweet tooth, Kellogg's limited edition Unicorn Froot Loops have been spotted in Chinatown's FairPrice.

Retailing for $8.50, they supposedly taste like "magic cupcakes" and might just give you the sugar-rush needed to start your day.

If you're the type to choose savoury over sweet, local snack brand F.east just made crispy rendang a reality with their latest potato chip flavour.

The lemak Beef Rendang will be retailing in 70g packets at 7-Eleven outlets and online at Redmart for $3.

Previous hawker food-inspired flavours that have been released include Egg Prata & Fish Curry, Hainanese Chicken Rice and Laksa.

A snack within a snack, Old Chang Kee has launched their first ever potato chips flavoured with the same spices used to make their famous Curry'Os.
