This blog post will start with a product and brand introduction with a first-look review, then it will end with the final verdict.
This little IG shop was introduced to me by an acquaintance of mine who wanted me to try and gave her some feedback in the form of a blog post. At first, she didn’t let me know what it is and I wasn’t thinking too much of it. Upon receiving, I was delighted at the sight of them. They look so cute, so pretty, and so yummy!
The first thing I took out was these cute “Mini Misu” cakes. Basically, cakes in yogurt-like cream made of fresh ingredients and mascarpone cheese. There are no preservatives in them so it’s best to eat them within 3 days from receival. Right now, three minis are RM60-RM75 a set, depending on the flavours. She gave me four flavors in total: Strawberry, Mango, Oreo, and Tiramisu. By the way, these are definitely better to eat when they are cold!
Out of all the items she had given me, my favourites are the fruit series Mini Misu’s. They taste so fresh in the mouth. The flavoured cream and the fruits matched really well too. There weren’t any artificial tastes to it. These are dangerously delicious, I could almost eat one every single day! The fruits are freshly cut and they are not processed.
Personally, I am not a fan of the regular Tiramisu because of the bitterness. However, these are rather easier to eat and it is more on the sweeter side. I’m surprised that there are crunchy round beads inside the Tiramisu flavored one. It added some textures to it, making it taste more like Milo. The Oreo on the other hand is really well made. It has the richness of the Oreo flavour without feeling overwhelmed by the sweetness. Swirling the Orea flavoured cream in the mouth was a different experience from the other three flavours, in the good way.
Oh! If you think the minis are too small for you, they have the larger versions, basically the same flavours but more content! It was absolutely an amazing time when indulging it. Each large tubs are RM23-28, depending on the flavour.
The last set of items are these Snowball Daifukus. They are different from the Korean/Japanese daifuku where the skin is stiffer and the fillings are cream instead of thick bean pastes. Depending on the flavour, they cost RM18-23 per set with 4 pieces. In August 2021, they will have Musang King flavours available as well. She gave me a strawberry flavour for this round.
As the skin is different, these are easier to cut through with a regular knife. They wrap the skin around the cream that has a full piece of strawberry within. I find that this type of daifuku is very much a Chinese-style dessert as there are similar desserts made with similar skin and filling, just in a different shape (rectangles). Personally, I am more towards the Korean style where they used glutinous skin with a chewy texture, and I am not used to it. However, the overall taste is pretty good. I wish the skin would be thinner though. These are also better when they are cold.
This was a genuinely good experience. I personally think that it could be a little less sweet since they can get a little overwhelming as they get warmer. When eating at the right temperature and right amount, they are simply amazing. Also, don’t leave it out without covering the container. These dry out rather quickly. It is better to keep them in a container and eat them as soon as possible. Price point-wise, I think it is justifiable since they do take a lot of effort to make. If you want something to snack on during these stressful months, go ahead and give it a try! They have free delivery within certain areas and you can check with them for more information. Would I recommend you to try it? Absolutely, as long as you’re not against sweet food (and don’t have diabetes because I don’t wish to worsen your condition).
