This is an invited tasting
There are two things about Chinese New Year that I remember as a kid. One, the angbaos that I get by being nice and smiley to all relatives and friends (Come on, who doesn't?) and second, the massive pile of goodies on the living room coffee table that make sure you will never ever go hungry.
Pineapple tarts, hae bee hiam spring rolls, bak kwa and melon seeds. Started shopping for them yet? PrimaDeli might have just what you need.
Fortune Pineapple Tarts ($1.60 each)
I had the opportunity to taste some of the new goodies that PrimaDeli has lined up for the year of the snake. The first one is the traditional pineapple tarts with a slight twist in terms of looks; shaping after a real pineapple. Pretty good to compliment that pair of mandarin oranges during visits!
Taste-wise, I rather like the moist filling and its shredded texture, though I would prefer the crust to be more buttery and rich.
Golden Orange Cookies ($14.80 per tin)
The other creation was a fusion between the usual chocolate chip cookies and the auspicious-meaning orange. Good for those who like the citrus fruit's flavour, though I personally felt that the taste of orange essence was a tad overpowering.
With less than three weeks to go, its time to fill up that coffee table soon!
Special thanks to Celina of Foreword Communications for the delivery!
