Let me tell you more about the individual flavours:
1) CharGold Bak Kwa Pineapple Tart (S$28.80 / 10 pieces)
For one thing, it doesn't look like your typical pineapple tart. Covered in charcoal powder which is said to help ease digestion, take a closer look and you'll see tiny gold specks for that touch of class too. Inside is a generous serving of bak kwa slices and pineapple jam which is interestingly yummy. If you like salty sweet combination then you'll surely love this. I surely did!
This was definitely our favorite flavor among the four! We both love the combination of coconut bits with the citrus-y pineapple filling. It reminds me of a coconut macaroons with a very Chinese feel.
3) Yuzu Pineapple Tart (S$24.80 / 10 pieces)
A year ago, Yuzu seemed like the flavor of the season! Holiday log cakes, mooncakes, cookies, candies and ice cream were all yuzu flavored! I'm so glad it's making a comeback and this combination made perfect sense especially for those who wants the strong citrus taste.
4) Rose Pineapple Tart (S$24.80 / 10 pieces)
I got to admit that I was really hesitant to try this as I never really liked rose or anthing that tastes like fragrant stationary. However, Paul convinced me to just give it a try and I was quite pleased that it has a lychee-like taste and not much of the stationary-tasting/smelling one.
