Durian white coffee, Musang King Tambun biscuits and other oddities

musang king tambun biscuit

This is probably one of the most interesting coffee I’ve ever had. It’s durian coffee and my dear got it for me on our trip to Penang last weekend. I’ve had kopi luwak (civet cat coffee) twice in Indonesia before but this 4-in-1 (the other being powdered durian) instant coffee appeals to me coz I love durians.

It comes in gold foil packaging and has a wonderful nose. It’s like nothing I’ve ever had. The durian taste and flavor is so intense you can practically taste it. I guess that’s the point, eh? Haha! I can easily drink two cups of this, a wonderful find by my better half.

We also got lots of Tambun biscuits (heong pneah) and tau sar pneah for relatives and friends and one of the more interesting finds was one filled with Musang King durians.

It comes in a pack of 12 and retails for RM 7.20. This is supposed to be the first ever in Malaysia – Tambun biscuits double filled with Musang King durian pulp. It tastes really good, if you like durians.

There’s also different flavored tau sar pneah (which I guess doesn’t make it tau sar pneah anymore, since “tau sar” translates to red bean). Coffee is one of my favorites. There’s a lot of manufacturers in Penang nowadays, the old school ones made with lard and the newer ones that’s halal to appeal to a broader market.

We made several trips to buy these and I pronounce them good! It’s been a while since we’ve had these! :)

    • I didn’t know until we went there too! :)

      It’s quite good, Musang King Penang style Tambun biscuits!

      I would go for the durian white coffee if you like durian too!

    • Nice! :)

      I’ll love to have durian tong yuen! I’ve never had that before.

      Haha! Yeah, it seems like people are putting durians into everything!

  1. Gotta salute these entrepreneurs, they can make a Musang King version of anything!

    Too bad I don’t drink coffee – gives me headaches. Wonder if there’s a Musang King flavored tea out there. LOL

    • Haha! Yeah, I agree with you mate! :)

      Musang King is in everything now, and it didn’t use to cost that much until the Macau casino magnate Stanley Ho started buying AAA Musang King and left us with the lower grade stuff.

      Seriously, unless you know a durian orchard owner, they export the triple A grade stuff coz they can make much more than from the local market.

      Musang King tea infusion. Hmm…sounds promising!

    • Yeah, and to think they only thought about it in 2013! :)

      It seems that people are putting good cultivar durians into everything! I know a dessert place that serves Trakka durian snow ice!
