Sunnyhills Pineapple Cakes 凤梨酥 from Taiwan

[These Pineapple Cakes were taste samples courtesy of Sunnyhills]

A few days ago, I got a box of Pineapple Cakes 凤梨酥 from Sunnyhills, Taiwan. It came when everyone in the office was so busy and needed a sweet treat to cheer everyone up.

Since a few of us in the office who ate it liked it, so I thought it deserves some airtime here. ;-)

We do receive brown boxes in our office. But the brown boxes are usually IT hardware or software delievered in brown carton boxes, and plastered with courier company's airbill.

This brown box above is different. It is made from nicer and smoother brown paper box and comes with a bright orange sticker and a nice little band to give is a nice classy gift look.

Examining the box before opening, I spotted on one corner, 3 chinese words: 奶蛋素 which translate to ovo-lacto vegetarianism. In lay man terms, it's suitable for vegetarian who is willing to take dairy and egg products.

So if you are ovo-lacto vegetarian, you can consume this.

When I opened the box, there was a nice gift card message. The little packages of delight were covered with a nice dark brown jagged paper. Nice packaging.

It certainly pleased my female colleague in the office. She loves pretty packaging.

For my background as a techie, we sometimes explain things or tell others how big something is by referring to things we normally see. When I say the piece of pineapple cake is big compared to the usual pineapple tarts, you can't really compare.

So here's a pack resting on top of the mouse! Hope that helps. You can see that this piece of pineapple cake is quite big.

I posted a photo on Facebook earlier and I have friends who say that they have their favourite brand of pineapple cakes to try from Taiwan. I should try those instead.

My colleagues and I think this brand is not bad. Amongst us a few have been to Taiwan and have tasted different kinds of pineapple cakes. I personally can't remember how other taste like even if I have eaten them. Colleague told me, this one is quite good.

The pineapple cake's golden crust you see above is made from quality ingredients. The flour is from Japan, butter is from New Zealand and they use free range eggs.

Some people like their pineapple jam very sweet, there are some who do not like things too sweet. If you don't like things too sweet, this might be for you. The jam is made from organic pineapples from Taiwan.

One colleague commented that he likes the filling because there is some 'bite' in the jam. You can feel some tiny pieces of pineapple which gives it a slight crunch when you have it.

For those calorie counting folks (like my sister). Each one has whopping 221 Kcal!

If you want to try these pineapple cakes yourself, you can head down to Funan IT Mall to sample them! They will be there from 17 - 31 January 2011.

They are sold in 3 sizes:
6 pcs box (300 grams) for $13.80 / 10 pcs box (500 grams) for $23.00 / 20 pcs box (1 kg) for $46.00

Before the opening of their physical store in Singapore later this year, they now provide delivery service. You can call +65 8522 9605 or email them at to place your orders.
