We know, we know – irkotta and piżelli pastizzi are iconic, legendary, taste amazing, and should remain with us until infinity, and beyond.
But it is 2019 – and the guys over at Sphinx Pastizzeria believe – nay, know – that is is time for a whole new flavour to hit the island. And not just any flavour – but, specifically, a flavour of the summer.
The mad scientists over at Sphinx have come up with six entirely new pastizzi flavours – and they need your help to decide which one of the fillings will go into production all around the Maltese islands!
Sphinx created six new, amazing and slightly insane flavours
And here they are in their full glory!
1. The pina colada pastizz (alcohol-free)
2. The banoffee pastizz
3. The pistachio pastizz
4. The pink lamington pastizz
5. The Maltese sausage and sundried tomatoes pastizz
6. The tuna pastizz
We even headed out with Sphinx to the streets of Valletta to get some feedback on what y’all thought of the new flavours
The people have spoken… and we now have two final contestants going head-to-head
The pistachio and Maltese sausage flavours were the clear winners, so they’ve now been put to a public vote on Lovin Malta’s Facebook page for you to decide which flavour you’d like to see in stores.
Are you a smooth yet nutty pistachio type of person, or are you as Maltese as they come, with sundried tomato blood in your veins?
Vote now by clicking on this link and help choose Malta’s new pastizz!
