One of the local food staples we're obsessed with has gotta be kaya butter toast, right? Mmmmmmm.

Usually found in kopitiams, kaya butter toast consists of warm toasted crispy bread generously slathered with creamy kaya and melted butter, yum! In fact, the traditional kopitiam snack is still one of the local food staples Malaysians just can't get enough of. 

Whether we have it for breakfast with soft boiled eggs, as a quick afternoon snack with a cup of hot coffee, or sometimes as a suppertime treat, kaya butter toast makes a delightful bite that can be enjoyed any time, anywhere. :9

Like, look at this image of crusty toasted bread slabbed with plenty of kaya and butter, amaigaaaaaddd.

Well, guess what? Twisties recently added their all-new Kaya Butter Toast flavour to the family, which means the popular kopitiam delicacy we're obsessed with can now be enjoyed in the flavourful form of corn snacks, yassssss! :D

Wanting to pay homage to local food, while offering Malaysians a truly different and unique taste that's irresistible, the new Kaya Butter Toast flavour will definitely leave you wanting more. It's a local favourite and many are obsessed with the familiar comforting taste.

Coconut-y as well as buttery, Kaya Butter Toast is the first ever sweet Twisties corn snack, different from other Twisties snacks previously released. So, you definitely gotta #EmbraceYourObsession and give this one-of-a-kind flavour a try. ;P

In fact, we managed to get our hands on the new flavour. Here's our verdict:

Upon opening the packet, we were greeted with a strong enticing waft of kaya — similar to the smell of a fresh bottle of kaya you often get from kopitiams. That got us hungry immediately, not gonna lie.

Appearance wise, the crisps look like the typical Twisties corn snacks, except that they don't seem to have much flavouring powder on.

But, what matters most is the flavour. We expected a strong taste of kaya, but surprisingly, the taste leaned more towards a savoury buttery flavour, with just a slight hint of coconut-y sweetness. The crunch though, reminded us of biting a piece of crunchy toast coated with lots of butter, yum!

Overall, do the corn snacks pay tribute to kaya butter toast? Yep, it does. If you're looking for a familiar yummy snack that boasts your favourite kopitiam delicacy, you'll love the Twisties Kaya Butter Toast! And after trying it, we are now obsessed with the flavour. Must have moreeeeeeee.
