Melvados – Singapore’s Hidden Find. Gourmet Food at Wholesale Prices
My friends from Republic Poly would frequently recommend Foodedge Gourmet at Woodlands Terrace to purchase Melvados items, selling many party foods from Brownies, Cheesecakes, Lava Cakes, Ice Creams, Sorbets, Breads to Ready Meals.
For those who have not heard of Woodlands Terrace, this is where many food factory outlets are located. It is not uncommon to see cars or the occasional bus diving groups of people making their way down for discounted buys. All items sold around here are at wholesale factory prices.
Cheap, budget, affordable, discounted, yet of the same quality as what you would get in the retails stores.
Melvados is the retail brand of Foodedge Gourmet which supplies to clients from airlines, restaurants, five star hotels, country clubs, to supermarkets.
I remember the very first time I went there was because I needed some ice cream to bring to a weekend gathering.
Flavours sold include Pistachio (love love), Durian (some would really like this because it does taste like the real D24), Salty Caramel, Chocolate Symphony, Chocolate Brownie, and my personal favourite – Triple Chocolate. Sorbets such as Mango, Lychee, Wild Berries, Soursop and Yuzu are also available, all costing… Between $8 and $9.90 per tub.
In fact, most tubs cost the basic $8, so so much cheaper than what it would cost outside. I initially wanted to get 2 tubs, but left with 5!
How much would it cost you to buy a whole tray of cake? $50? $80? $100 or more?
An entire tray of 1kg Double Chocolate Brownie from Melvados, pre-cut to 10 pieces is at $27.00! Each slice would only cost $2.70. Suitable for busy people, all you need to do is heat it up in the oven, and perhaps top it up with a big scoop of creamy ice cream for a more delectable treat.
Other than the usual classic rich and deep walnut brownie, those with toppings such as Macadamia Brownie ($30), Mixed Nut Fudge Brownie ($27.00), Opera ($30), Apple Crumble ($27.00), Red Velvet ($28.00), Mango Cheesecake ($28.00), and the popular Oreo Cheesecake ($30.00) are available. Prices for 1kg, pre-cut to 10 pieces.
The most crowd-pleasing dessert you may bring to a party are the Chocolate Lava Cakes ($20 for 8 pieces) which oozes (after some heating over the microwave) and in fact taste more moist than what some cafes offer.
Just when I thought that was all, Calzones ($10 for 5 pieces), Multigrain bread ($8 for 2 loaves), Pre-packed Soups such as Chowder ($12 for 5 portions), Tortilla Meat Wraps ($12 for 4), American Beef Pies ($12 for 4), Quiche ($12 for 4), and dips such as Sundried Tomato ($5.50) and Basil Pesto ($5.50) are also sold.
The products are fully cooked, and simply require heating for instant gratification. My friends who frequently organise weekend parties, potlucks and BBQs said knowing about the products from Melvados were a life-saver!
