难忘的台湾味

46年前,「先麦食品」原本是坐落于大甲镇澜宫旁三角街口的「合味香饼铺」,是一间专门制作中式喜饼、糕饼、婴儿点心及面包等产品的小店。有一年,大甲槟榔心芋滞销,先麦为了照顾芋农,同时也为迎合市场需求及通路型态改变,尝试以大甲槟榔心芋研发产品,并在民国87年制作出台湾第一颗芋头酥,其扎实的内馅与新鲜的口感,不仅让「先麦芋头酥」享誉全台,更带动大甲芋农们整体经济收益。

获选台湾 15大伴手礼

民国93年,先麦芋头酥被指名为国宴点心,从此成为代表「台湾味道」与「台湾记忆」的糕点,曾荣获经济部台湾具代表性15大伴手礼、德国IF设计大奖等殊荣,是游客必带伴手礼。目前共有9家连锁店,除了芋头酥外,还有收涎饼、小酥饼、星星小西饼、雪糕、冰淇淋等创意商品,十分值得一试!

 

推荐商品

芋头酥(35元∕个):是先麦最畅销的商品,选用大甲槟榔心芋、天然奶油及海藻糖制作,人工.制的面皮,以烘培取代油炸,皮酥馅Q,散发出芋头香味及淡淡乳香,还可吃到芋头粒。由于使用海藻糖,甜度较低,每颗芋头酥热量仅 147大卡,共有原味、地瓜 Q、抹茶 Q、蛋黄及麻糬 5种口味。

台湾金爱饼( 30元∕个):
取其台语谐音「真爱拼」,以台湾造型及台湾食材做为文创构思。饼上的纹路以台湾主要河流展现创意,其中有些表面裂口,是要让客人感受台湾土地意象,就连包装纸盒都是台湾渔船造型,象征台湾人民「不分族群、同舟共济、共同打拼」的深刻意涵,从产品到包装,皆以台湾本土精神来表现。尝起来酥皮松软,带有土凤梨独特的清香,口感酸甜,称得上是最能代表台湾特色的糕饼之一。

半口牛轧糖( 120元∕小罐、 200元∕大罐):采用仅3分甜的海藻糖制作,借以降低甜腻感,口感偏软,有芋头、地瓜、杏仁3种口味,一口就能吃完,完全不沾手。

伴口饼(40元∕个):外形像菊花花瓣,从外皮到内馅以3层口感来呈现。第 1层外皮是香浓起司味,第2层是凤梨酸甜味,第 3层则是在地咸鸭蛋黄的咸香味,入口时,咸甜香兼具,十分美味。

Unforgettable Taiwanese taste!

Taiwan Travel : Delicacy - Shan Mai Taro Cakei??TaiwanDay

46 years ago, Shan Mai Food was the Her Wey Xiang Bakery located at the triangle street corner next to the Dajia Jenn Lann Temple; it was a small store specialized in making products such as Taiwanese bride cakes, pastries, baby snacks and bread. One year, the betel nut taro in Dajia district was unsalable. To take care of taro farmers, cater to market needs, and change channel types, Shan Mai tried to develop its product using Dajia betel nut taro, and in 1998 it made the first taro cake. Its solid filling and fresh taste not only let a�?Shan Mai Taro Cakea�? become famous in Taiwan, but also promote the overall economic benefits of taro farmers in Dajia district.

Selected as the 15 best Taiwanese souvenirs

In 2004, Shan Mai taro cake was named for the snack of state banquet and since then has become a cake representative of a�?Taiwanese tastea�? and a�?Taiwanese memory.a�? It has received special awards such as the 15 best Taiwanese souvenirs by the Ministry of Economic Affairs and won iF design award from Germany. It really is a souvenir that tourists have to get. Shan Mai currently has 9 chain stores. Apart from taro cakes, it also has creative products such as slobber cookies, small crispy cakes, star shaped cookies, popsicles and ice cream. It is worth a try!

There are totally 5 flavors: original flavor, sweet potato chewy flavor, green tea chewy flavor, egg yolk flavor, and mochi flavor.

Taiwan love cake: The name of the cake is from its Taiwanese homonym a�?Tsin Ai Phinga�?, meaning that Taiwanese a�?really love working harda�?. It uses Taiwan shape and Taiwan ingredients as its creative inspiration. The lines on the cake are the main rivers in Taiwan to show creativity. Some surface cracks are designed to give customers the impression of land in Taiwan. Even the packaging carton has a Taiwanese fishing boat on it as a symbol that a�?Taiwanese people are in the same boat so need to assist each other and work together, regardless of ethnic groups.a�? The spirit of Taiwan has been shown from the product to its packaging. When tasting, you will find the crust crispy and soft, and the cake has a unique fragrance of local pineapple and a sour and sweet taste. It can be called as one of the best cakes to represent Taiwan.
