White Pro is located in Taipei's Neihu
District and claims to be the first flan specialty shop
in Taiwan. As a shop that only makes flan, they sell
a remarkable 1,500 flans every day. The process of making
flan is long and laborious. The fresh flan sold at White
Pro consists of 80 percent fresh milk and weighs about
180 grams apiece with between 200 and 250 calories.
Owner Ricky Hsia is not only health conscious but also
finicky about the ingredients he uses. For instance,
the chestnut cream in his chestnut flan is made by grinding
up whole chestnuts in order to get the right nutty chestnut
taste; their blueberry flan is primarily made from frozen
blueberries to give a tangy flavor that differs from
those made with canned blueberries. Currently, White
Pro has a total of nine different flavors. In addition
to the most popular tangy Mango and the Red Bean Sesame
flavors, they have also added three new flavors to their
fall menu--Red Wine Cherry, Strawberry, and Milk Tea.
Red Wine Cherry is especially recommended for women.
There are also other flavors such as Original, Chocolate,
Milk Tea, Green Tea, and Carrot. It is recommended that
flan be eaten within three days after purchase for the
best taste. For in-store orders of a dozen or more,
the price averages to about NT$42 per flan.
