There are many brands of pineapple pastry in Taiwan. I have tried many of those but this is my favorite as they are semisweet. If you cannot make it to the store, they have their products in 7-11.

Which pineapple cake tastes better? Chia Te or Sunny Hills?

Response fromTravelIndulges|
Hi, Both are great. Go for sunny hills if u prefer a richer pineapple taste. As for.Chiate, there's winter melon added, not as rich as Sunny but still good. Sunny is more expensive.
