Mid-Autumn Festival 2020 has just passed on 1 October 2020, last Thursday.
I didn’t use to pay much attention to this festival over the past years. I would usually anyhow pick up a few pieces of traditional mooncake from any shop on my way home.
I am so sick and tired of the same old lotus paste and salted egg yolk combination. This year I decided to get snowskin or durian mooncakes instead.
I originally wanted to get just 1-2 pieces since we are just a small family but all mooncakes come in 4 or 8 packaging.
I stumbled upon Bakerzin’s website and saw their new Fruit Series Snowskin Mooncake. They come in 8 -piece sets but the mooncakes are mini-sized, so it’s not too much.
There are 4 flavors:
- Orange Chia Seed Snowskin
- Honey Dew Chia Seed Snowkin
- Lychee Chia Seed Snowskin
- Strawberry Chia Seed Snowskin
One box costs S$46 which I think is still pretty affordable.
These mooncakes are so cute and dainty, I almost can’t bear to eat them. They are so small, each mooncake can be finished in 2 bites.
These snowskin mooncakes are not as sweet as the traditional lotus paste mooncakes. You can taste the different fruits and the chia seeds gives a nice crunchy texture.
I shall try Bakerzin’s Durian Snow Skin Mooncake next year.
