Cake is hard to pass up if you have a craving for something sweet and satisfying. How do Mic’s Pineapple Cakes measure up?
Price and Availability
The inborn foodie in me loves to try out new recipes and products, preferably ones that are low in calories, saturated fat, sodium and sugars. When I came across Mic’s Pineapple Cakes from one of my local Asian supermarkets, I was intrigued and had to give this product a try. It cost just $1.49 for a 6-pack of cakes, which works out to around $0.25 per cake, which is a good deal.
Mic’s Pineapple Cakes comes in an exotic-looking 150g yellow box, decorated with flowers and with a close up picture of the pineapple cakes stacked up on top of each other. Mic’s Pineapple Cakes are a product of Taiwan and are distributed by Ming Chi Food Co., Ltd. I was intrigued with Mic’s Pineapple Cakes and was keen to give them a try. Each cake comes individually wrapped in a foil wrapper to help seal in the freshness.
The nutrition information is per 100g, rather than per serving, and contains 437kcal, 5.g protein, 19g total fat, 9.6g of which is saturated fat, no trans fats, 61g carbohydrates, 8g sugar and 73.7mg sodium. The calorie, fat and sugar content values are low when you work out the nutritional values per cake.
Mic’s Pineapple Cakes are small and come in little bite-size chunks, rather than a larger slice of cake, that you might have been expecting. The cakes are golden brown. When I first bit into the cake, I could taste the generous dollop of pineapple jam. Initially, I thought that I was actually biting into an actual chunk of pineapple, but it is a pineapple jam filling instead. I was disappointed with the taste of the cake, as the cake was too crumbly and the pineapple jam tasted a bit stale.
Mic’s Pineapple Cakes are well priced and come individually wrapped in small, bite-size pieces, but I was not overly impressed with the cakes. I am unlikely to but this product again and would not recommend it.
