Gartien Pineapple Cakes

Time flies… really really fast. In just a few days’ time, it will be Christmas, New Year and then Chinese New Year! It’s time to shop for CNY snacks not only for family and I, but also for relatives as gifts. Every year, pineapple tarts are a must-buy snack for CNY because it’s one of the most common ones and signifies “Ong Lai” (“Prosperity comes” in Hokkien dialect).

But this year, I decided to buy something else for a change – Pineapple Cakes from Gartien (小田佳園)! And they arrived at my doorstep 2 days ago…

For their CNY 2014 theme, Gartien Pineapple Cakes were packaged in an elegant bright red box with golden embossed Peony/Mudan Flower (牡丹) and text that says “迎春” which means “Welcome Spring”. A similar patterned paper bag was also provided, perfect for gifting purpose.

Gartien Pineapple Cakes are 100% local product as their pineapples are sourced from Nibong Tebal, Penang. After handpicking the best ones, the cakes were handmade in Georgetown, Penang. What I like most about Gartien’s Pineapple Cakes is the fact that they don’t add preservatives and artificial flavoring =)

Please ignore my naked face, I just wanna nom the pineapple cake!

Taste wise, I totally love it because to be honest, I prefer cake more than biscuit as it is not so dry. The pineapple fillings had a different and better texture compared to pineapple tarts they use brunoised instead of puree. The freshly handmade buttery pineapple cake tastes heavenly with the accompaniment of quality Chinese tea.
