All of the Malasadas are more dough the filling and some with little to no filling all covered in sugar.

 Guava Malasada

Guava Malasada

Guava : 

 

Th filling is rich in flavor and consultancy of the pink guava purée.

it is not overly sweet and has a slight bite to it in the back.

You can definitely know its guava but does have a grainy texture from the added sugar 

 


 Strawberry Malasada

Strawberry Malasada

Strawberry :

he filling is very sweet and has a good amount of cor surup makeing me believe its not made in house. A big disappointment to me.

There is not really any flavor of the strawberry in this at all just overly sweet and has an elasticity o it


 Haupia Malasada

Haupia Malasada

Haupia (Coconut) :

The filling is very frothy and has a constantly of marshmallow fluff.

It has a big flavor of the coconut and is probably made by whipping coconut milk and powdered sugar.

This by far is the best in flavor to the name but is so sweet and could have been cut down in sweetness my adding some citrus.
