Mid-autumn festival is coming and it is a tradition to eat mooncake on that day. As usual, we went to the Takashimaya Basement 2 to try out and purchase mooncakes.
Well, due to inflation, prices of the mooncakes have increased. The prices are getting steeper. I went around searching for the sugar free walnut mooncake and tried out different brands of mooncakes. This event will end on 8 September which is the day of mid-autumn festival (lunar calendar 15 August).
As we all know, bakerzin is famous for the desserts and cakes. However, I bought their traditional mooncakes due to the following reasons:
1) They are not very sweet.
2) The 2 egg yolks are spread throughout the Mooncake and everyone will get to eat the yolk.
3) It comes in a nice red box with 2 rabbits on it.
4) There are origami papers in the box with instructions. (I didn’t know till I went home and checked them out.)
5) It comes with a free bag (I also didn’t know until we were asked to choose from a red bag or a silver & green bag.) which makes carrying the box of mooncakes so much easier. And it looks good if you are giving it as a gift!
6) It comes with a complimentary massage or facial at Mary Chia on a rabbit design coupon tied to the bag.
The box of 4 mooncakes with 2 egg yolks in each mooncake costs S$66 per box, excludes GST. If you have OCBC or HSBC credit card, you get 15% discount. Takashimaya cardholders get 10% discount.
