Sunnyhills pineapple cakes 凤梨酥

Chinese New Year is coming!! I am so excited, all that feasting, visiting, ang pows, feasting, feasting, feasting... Hahaha.

So, what is your favourite snack for the CNY festivities? For me, it is always the pineapple tarts. It is practically synonymous with CNY. I will wait impatiently and anxiously for CNY just so that I can enjoy my first taste of pineapple tarts (yes, even though some places sell pineapple tarts all year round, it just doesnt taste the same unless it's eaten during the right season. Same thing with durians, they taste best when you eat them during the right season.)

So, you can imagine my excitement when I saw these 2 boxes of my favourite CNY snack!

Don't they look inviting and delicious?? All hygenically packed and individually wrapped!

I was breathless with anticipation, waiting to unveil this golden nugget!

And there you go, a perfectly formed golden cake, filled with organic goodness.

Did I say organic? Yes I did. That's the dilemma I always experience. I love pineapple tarts and CNY goodies, but I am always worried about the kind of food that I am consuming. Transfats, carcinogens - all the things that take away the enjoyment from eating something delicious.

And that is why, to me, it is so important to source for something that is both healthy and delicious. Impossible you say? Well not anymore. These delicious pineapple cakes are made with ORGANIC Cayenne pineapples grown on Ba Gua mountains in the Nantou County of Taiwan. They use gourmet baking flour from Japan and pure New Zealand butter. They bake the cakes using traditional methods and proudly call these "Sunny Bites". A taste of sunshine in every bite. Yum. Although these cakes are made in Taiwan, they are airflown to Singapore, freshly made, every 3 days. Yes, these treats are now available in Singapore!

I liked everything about this pineapple cake. The crust was buttery crumbly delicious and the pineapple filling was a perfect combination of sweet and tangy (definitely not oversweet, which is my greatest fear). In particular, the filling had a nice texture, with sufficient bite to it. My Dear Mom (DM) who is a very fussy pineapple tart eater because she used to make them herself from scratch many years ago, has proclaimed these the best pineapple tarts she has ever had. What a resounding endorsement! She especially loves the filling, which is not too sweet and has a good home-made texture.

Here is a close-up of the yummy treat! doesn't it look tantalising? Well, in my humble opinion, this pineapple cake is really good value for money because it comes in a beautiful gift box (perfect for giving to important clients) and is individually wrapped, and is huge (at least 2-3 times the size of a normal pineapple tart).

What sort of exclusive deal are you refering to?
Anyone can easily get a "free" sample (that's why it is called sample in the first place) without having quote your name.

Hi Anon: is that right? This was what the shopowners informed me, that they would provide free samples to my blog readers. Are you taking issue with the fact that a sample by definition should be free (not really arguing with that, but I didnt want to deviate from the offer that I was sent) or that anyone was able to obtain a sample without quoting chocolate reindeer (which is also a good thing so no complaints there)?

Anyhows, chill. It's CNY.

Yup, agree with Chocolate Reindeer's reply to Anon... to chill and enjoy CNY, with or without free pineapple tart samples, with or without quoting the blogger.

Anyway, for the record, Choc Reindeer, I got a "free sample" at the store after quoting your name. Thanks so much! :)
