Today I would like to introduce another Taiwanese specialty, pineapple cake. Here’s what the packaging looks like.
The outside is alot like a fig newton. I’ve never really thought about comparing it with something else until today, even though I’ve been eating it since I was a small kid.
But it’s fair to say that a fig newton is probably the best comparison.
The inside is filled with a hard jelly, that tastes nothing like pineapple.
In fact, the whole thing doesn’t really taste anything like pineapple. If I were to hand you this without saying it’s pineapple cake, then you would never have guessed that’s what it’s called.
It’s incredibly good though, and it is really a childhood memory for me, along with many Taiwanese.
Thanks for reading!
