MoFoods Puff Puff & Buns

This Puff-Puff Mix Brings The Sweet Taste of Nigeria To The UK

Omolara Tayo-Sobajo launched the original Nigerian flavour MoFoods Puff-puff mix and Buns mix range in 2018 after seeing a huge demand for her ready made puff puff in her catering business. Puff-puff are a type of dough ball; comparative to what The West would call a “Doughnut” and are extremely popular across Nigeria and many other parts of Africa (under different names).  Buns use the similar ingredients as puff-puff but are thicker and not as fluffy.

Mofoods puff puff mixPuff-puff and Buns are popular snacks in Nigeria, fried and sold on road sides and served as starters in parties and at special occasions. As popular as puff-puff is, it requires some skill as ingredients must be in the right proportion to achieve the right fluffy texture, taste and aroma. By giving consumers an easy way to recreate these popular snacks at home the MoFoods range of mixes will bring an authentic taste of Nigeria to UK homes.
