Starbucks Malaysia: Pineapple Tarts

Happy Chinese New Year to all my friends and readers! 🙂

I’m not a particular fan of pineapple tarts, but when a friend of mine in Kluang told me that he found the Starbucks pineapple tarts to be quite palatable, I was instantly curious.

Like really? Starbucks + pineapple tarts?

So I sneaked a look at the box one day when I was in Starbucks.

Wow, so they’ve got chocolate and green tea ones too. Not bad.

I managed to resist buying them for a month, since I figured that I wasn’t curious enough, and I had quite a number of cookies (specifically pineapple tarts) at home.

Today being the eve of the Lunar New Year, I found myself at Starbucks for a respite after shopping.
And there are the silver boxes of pineapple tarts, stacked up and tempting me.

In the festive mood (shopping mood to be exact), I thought “Ah, what the hell, let’s try it.”

So I got myself a box, RM42 for 8 tarts, and crossed my fingers and toes that I won’t regret it.

Starbucks Malaysia: Pineapple Tarts:
1. Chocolate Strawberry – (rich chocolate crust, strawberry flavoured pineapple paste)
2. Green Tea Blueberry – (matcha/green tea crust, blueberry flavoured pineapple paste)
3. Classic – (buttery crust, tangy pineapple paste)

Overall verdict: I like the novelty flavours of the paste but found them all too sweet.
However, the paste does have a nice tang to it thus I bet it would have been nicer if it was less saccharine.
In fact, this has just given me an idea; instead of flavoured crust, flavoured pineapple paste sounds very viable!
Maybe I’ll explore this for 2016 CNY. 🙂
As for the crust I felt it was so-so; crumbly but a bit dry.

    so cute … and very creative, the different flavoured crusts for the pineapple tarts. i just munched on five tarts yesterday brought from malacca … i prefer the traditional open-face sort, but even then, the prices have increased, and it’s now 80 sen per tart…

      Sigh.. price increase is everywhere Sean!
      Gong Xi Fa Cai!! Hope the year of the Ram brings the best for your work, health, wealth and happiness dear Sean *hugs *
      Oh, I love such creative combinations – there will always be the traditional, but some unique ones are a “breathe of fresh air ” to what is avail in the markets 😛
