#1 Melt-In-Your-Mouth Pineapple Tarts (Ball)

They say to not judge a book by its cover but at first glance, you can already tell that Ding Bakery’s Melt-In-Your-Mouth Pineapple Tart Balls will be utterly delicious. Made from premium ingredients such as French butter and fresh pineapples, these golden morsels are the perfect combination of sweet and savoury. They have a non-crumbly texture but once you’ve taken a bite, they instantly melt into a delectably tangy mouthful that’s not overly sweet or cloying.

For those who prefer something savoury to snack on, be warned: these Hae Bee Hiam Prawn Rolls are seriously addictive. They may be petite but each roll is generously filled with dried shrimp that leaves a spicy kick. What’s more: they are freshly made without preservatives or additives so each bite delivers a satisfyingly crunchy outer layer and a soft filling with explosive flavours. 

Trust us when we say that it’ll take a lot of willpower not to finish this entire bottle in one sitting!

#3 Nyonya Pineapple Tarts


Pineapple tart connoisseurs often look for the perfect balance of sweet and sour. Ding Bakery’s award-winning Nyonya Pineapple Tarts certainly ticks all the right boxes. They have been voted the best pineapple tarts in Singapore for several years in a row – and for good reason. These traditional open-faced pineapple tarts boast an intensely rich buttery and flaky pastry topped with freshly-made pineapple jam – just like how Ah Ma used to make!

#4 Melt-In-Your-Mouth Kueh Bangkit

There’s something nostalgic about kueh bangkit that can bring up fond memories of Chinese New Year. Ding Bakery’s scrumptious Kueh Bangkit cookies have a subtle coconut and pandan flavour, and – like the name suggests – they quickly crumble into a fine, fragrant texture once you’ve popped one into your mouth. We predict the Kueh Bangkit will be a hit especially with older folks as they are just the right amount of sweetness.

#5 Melt-In-Your-Mouth Pineapple Tarts (French Butter)

Not all pineapple tarts are made equally. Ding Bakery offers a premium version for those who can appreciate quality ingredients. Made from only premium artisanal French butter, these Melt-In-Your-Mouth Pineapple Tarts have an incredibly smooth and creamy crust that cannot be replicated by regular butter. When paired with the tangy pineapple filling, these tarts will have you hooked from the very first bite.
