Kacang means “bean” but the kacang vendors usually sell groundnuts as well as other nuts, such cashew nuts or other varieties. It is often called kacang, which literally means white bean, or white nut. It is most likely that the correct name for it is ‘kacang puteh’.

Reminiscing about fond memories is usually enjoyable, especially when it comes to many things that are slowly fading into obscurity.

Back in the 1950s and 1960s, they could be found in droves, frequently making their presence known in football stadiums, movie theaters, and amusement parks. Their numbers dwindled as the years passed.

Most of the sellers of Kacang Puteh were of Indian origins in Malaysia. This must have been a common business within your community. At least one kacang puteh seller would be present in every cinema. You also could find people selling products on a bicycle and shouting with the bell rather than drawing customers.

They sell more than just white beans. They also offer a variety of roasted nuts, crackers and other snacks. Some go one step further and add recently acquired delights like the steam cones to their selections. The nuts/crackers/beans then get hand-rolled wrappers in funnel form.

Back then, each portion was about 5 cents. Now it is an astonishing $1 to $1.50 . The investment is worthwhile for a taste of the past.

These sellers of kacang puteh gradually disappeared over time, although in some supermarkets you still could find these products.
