Thriftiest Baked Treat

Five Mini Pineapple Custard Buns for $1.70 at Napoleon Super Bakery

0

Want to bring in some baked goods for the office, but tired of the usual donuts or bagels? Breathe some fresh life into the office treat rotation by bringing in a pink cardboard box full of mini pineapple custard buns from Napoleon Super Bakery. Despite their name, the baked buns don’t actually contain any pineapple — the buns’ cracked butter-sugar topping merely resembles the fruit. Inside, you’ll find a generous helping of dense yellow eggy custard that’s just a tad bit sweet. Versions stuffed with red bean paste, barbecue pork, or without filling are also available. Hint: while most of the bakery’s goods are self-serve, you’ll find these babies behind the counter.
