Famous Amos has received its halal certification from the Islamic Religious Council of Singapore (Muis), the American cookie brand announced in an Instagram post on Tuesday (Nov 15). The post garnered more than 200 likes in less than an hour.
The announcement means that the Muslim community in Singapore can now enjoy its popular handmade cookies with confidence. It added that all 17 Famous Amos stores islandwide, such as the one in Northpoint City and Plaza Singapura, have received the halal certification.
Famous Amos has been in Singapore for almost four decades, since opening its first store in 1983. It’s known for its freshly baked, crunchy cookies that come in nine flavours, such as the original chocolate chip, chocolate chip and pecan, and white chocolate chip and macadamia.
Cookies are usually parcelled out by weight and packed in a bag. The brand also offers gift tins and gift boxes.
Over the years, Famous Amos — known for its distinct aroma — has also provided more variety in its menu, selling other baked goods such as muffins and brownies. You can also opt for personalised cookie and brownie cakes.
