At World of Snacks we are currently in the process of adding a selection of Mexican Snacks to our international snack store. Set to officially launch in just a few days, we’ve already add most of the snacks to our website. We just need to go back and add a few more details. What does that mean for you? Well, if you want to start buying Mexican Snacks online right now, you are more than welcome to. We are thrilled to be offering Mexican Snacks in our store because Mexico is home to some unique flavors and amazing treats. Our review tonight is one such snack, the Barritas Pina Pineapple Filled Cookies.
Just a few days ago we posted a review of the Gamesa Mini Mamut Cookies. We really enjoyed them so we are eager to try another foreign cookie. This is our first snack from Marinela. This Mexican baker initially got its start in 1954. The company specialized in offering birthday cakes packaged with matching birthday candles. They then progressed to selling individual cakes without packaging in paper cups. Today Marinela offers a range of snack cakes and cookies, including the Barritas Pina. Let’s take a closer look at this snack under review.
When we first received our package of Barritas Pina Pineapple Filled Cookies we thought they were cakes. We didn’t actually realize we had cookies to review until we closely read all the text on the package. These are massive cookies from Mexico! They are long and have a pineapple puree center filling. The cookie is similar to a cake. It’s very soft, but firm enough to be considered a cookie. The cookie flavor is a little bland, but it accents the sweet pineapple center. The pineapple is indeed sweet, but not too overpowering and packs a decently fruity punch. One of our testers mentioned it reminds them of the American Fig Newton Cookies. There are similarities but the Barritas Pina is unique snack of it’s own. Overall we really enjoyed the cookie and personally it’s the best pineapple flavored cookie I have yet to encounter.
If you are one of our many blog followers you know we generally finish our international snack reviews with a determination if we will or will not offer the reviewed snack in our store. Well this one is different; it’s already in our store. You can order Marinela Barritas Pina online right now! We also offer several other Cookies from Mexico, so check them out.
