Since i was a kid, pineapple cakes have always been my favorite CNY cookie. It also carries a deeper meaning as well, as it's a homonym for "prosperity arrives" according to taiwan culture.
Imagine my joy when I received a box of Gartien Pineapple Cakes for tasting & review from Criz. ;) I've heard a lot about Gartien (小田佳園) as a local pineapple cakes manufacturer in Penang. They're famous for their passion for good food & most of all, no preservatives are added in their pineapple cakes.
In conjunction with Chinese New Year, they've taken special steps and redesigned their packaging with the CNY 2014 theme of Peony (Mudan/牡丹) flowers.
