Bakerzin Mooncakes

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).

Normally we will buy a box of mooncakes, on top of the walnut mooncakes. Usually we buy from Da Zhong Guo or Raffles Hotel. However, this year I’m attracted to Bakerzin.

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.

I chose the red bag!
