It’s Sunflower season! We made our signature traditional Thai dessert ‘Allure’ into this summer flower, aiming to make you smile.
“Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see the shadow. It’s what sunflowers do.” – Helen Keller
With this you can have your own little sunflower field at home to brighten up your days, bring to the picnic and share with your loved ones or as a thoughtful gift those special to you.
Allure was first introduced by Portuguese-Japanese-Bengali Lady Maria Guyomar de Pinha who is known for bringing new dessert recipes into Thai cuisine during the Ayutthaya Kingdom (1350 to 1767).
It is made from plain wheat flour, coconut milk, sugar and an essence of jasmine flower. Allure is traditionally made in a twirled shape in bright colours. Today, it can be seen in various styles, especially floral.
There are different ways to make Allure last longer, including sun-drying, dehydrating and oven baking.
For the final process making of our Allure, we use slow baking for about 12 hours in our dehydrator machine. It creates the perfect traditional chewy texture, with a little crispy outside and soft gummy inside.
Our Sunflower Allure is very vegan friendly and dairy free and with its positive meaning of attraction, it will bring a happy surprise to those who receive them. We deliver our Allure in new PRANSUK’s special design packaging.
They are a pleasurable addition to your favourite afternoon tea with its subtle sweetness. Believe it or not they work very well with a few glass of Champagne or sparkling Prosecco whenever you are in the mood for small celebrations. And they are very photogenic that will create a buzz at your gathering.
Our ‘Sunflower’ desserts are the perfect treats for the Summertime. Out of all our Allure treats, the ‘Sunflower’ Allure treats are the only ones that are vegan and dairy-free. If you have been wanting to try our Allure desserts but couldn’t because of allergies or you are vegan, then our ‘sunflower’ treats are the perfect opportunity for you to try.
The sunflower has many meanings from all over the world. In some cultures, sunflowers mean positivity and strength and in others can mean admiration and loyalty.
Sunflowers symbolise the summertime. They are one of the most loved flowers with their bright, yellow petals. Sunflowers tend to be used as a sign of happiness and congratulations. The sunflower meanings include focus, healing and warmth. In Chinese culture, sunflowers mean good luck and lasting happiness which is why they are often given out when someone succeeds at something in their life.
A bit of history, the ancient Greeks believed that sunflowers turned towards the sun because the nymph Clytie adored Apollo, the God of the Sun.
A fun fact about sunflowers is that they are a part of the Asteraceae family which is in the same family as daisies.
With the Sunflower’s wholesome symbolism, these would be the perfect gifts or desserts to congratulate someone on their graduation, passing their driving test, passing their exams, getting into university. Are you extremely proud of someone in your life? Treat them to our ‘Sunflower’ Allure treats.
