From the a slew of makeshift booths adorned with tacky decorations of Lanterns, moons and the Lunar Diva Chang-E, you would have realized that Mid-Autumn Festival is just about a month away.
And when it comes to Mid-Autumn Festival, nothing quite brings up the festivity of this 15th Day of the 8th Lunar Month than Mooncakes…or rather at least to most of us Singaporeans.
If you’re looking to impress, satisfy and indulge, keep your appetite open for Peony Jade’s selection of Mooncakes. Because this year, other than bringing back the old favorites, they have introduced four new flavors that aims to impress.
The 4 Heavenly Flavors
Bringing together ingredients and fruits from around the world, the chefs at Peony Jade created the 4 Heavenly Flavors that will impress those who seek fruity flavors
Made from a combination for Mulberries, Blueberries, Blackberries, Strawberries and Blackcurrants, this mini delight is probably one of the healthiest Mooncakes I’ve had. Its pretty much choked full of Antioxidants and Vitamin C. The Mini Snowskin Power Berries Berries Mooncake (S$55 for 8) is limited to 500 boxes only.
Of the 4 new flavors, the Mini Snowskin Cream Cheese Mango Mooncake (S$50 for 8) was my favorite. I liked how it is not overpowering in sweetness and flavor, its very enjoyable, especially with those cubes of mangoes.
If you’re like the traditional, I do highly recommend their Teochew Mooncake (Double Yolk, S$35 for 2, S$62 for 4). I’ve had this in 2010, and I’ve had it ever since. The buttery flaky skin, the luscious smooth yam paste filling and the savory salted egg yolk all impeccably combined into one delicious mooncake….mmmm, need I say more?
For the Durian Fanatics
For all you fanatics who crave for the supple flesh of the King of Fruits, take delight in Peony Jade’s classic and highly-sought after Mao Shan Wang Durian Mooncake in Organic Pandan snowskin (S$42 for 2, S$74 for 4). Indulge in 100% premium bittersweet Mao Shan Wang with every single bite.
Other than the Mao Shan Wang Mooncake, Peony Jade brings back the other favorite Durian Mooncake – Mini Bamboo Ash Snowskin Mooncake with Premium Golden Phoenix Durian (S$74 for 8).
