Mid-autuman festival this year fall on the 30th September. So it’s about 2 weeks away. I’ve sampled a few mooncakes so far. Some good some bad.

Starbucks Mooncake

We decided to try mooncake from Starbucks this year. This set contains 2 mooncake @ RM34.80. The flavours are tiramisu and caramel macchiato. Love the macchiato one while the tiramisu one is very weak.

I like the wave-like design.

Oopss all finished liao. Hahaha

We’ve been Tong Kee mooncake enthusiast for the past 4 years. Why we (my family) favor this brand is because there is umph-ness and also the mooncake is not very sweet. Just nice.

Ahh… another year without charcoal flavour mooncake. Why why why? I missed it so much.

I’ve also sampled Oversea mooncake. While the regular one is nothing to be desired about, their ping-pei (snowskin) one is pretty yummy. No photo though.

Ya know how mooncakes prices have increase in recent years right? Here’s a tip on where to buy cheap mooncakes from reputable brands. Mooncakes like Tong Kee, Kam Lun Tai, Tai Thong, Casahana, Bee’s, Baker’s Cottage, Macau Hong Kong, etc… if you buy ‘em at AEON Jusco, you’ll get 10% off as AEON members and best of all most if not all will have this Buy 4 Free 1 promotion. So our Tong Kee mooncake (4 pieces) + 1 piece free total to around RM11 per piece only. CHEAP right? Just thought I’ll share this great deal with you all.

Oh Tong Kee moon cakes are nice? I have never eaten before! So Jusco has 10% discount for members? That’s good! Thanks for the info : )

Ya 10% discount and most of the brands I mentioned above has the Buy 4 Free 1 deal. What a bargain!

Premium brands like Haagen Dazs and Dragon-i does not offer this deal though.

What mooncake do you usually buy?

I love the Tong Kee box, so so pretty. The first time I ever saw these mooncake boxes was last year at my mom’s home…she collected them and I brought 1 home with me. Over here, they are still in those metal boxes….4 for $38+ all from HK.

Actually I prefer metal boxes coz they last longer and I can keep ‘em. If I don’t convert, $38+ is okay I guess.

What!? Starbucks mooncake made by Baker’s Cottage? Do you think it’s worth RM38? Considering to buy but it’s quite expensive!

Ya lor I was shocked too when I learned the maker of Starbucks mooncake.

That’s why we bought a box to try… to see it’s worth it or not. Verdict? Not bad but forgettable lo and for that price, not worth it.

I think the packaging interests me more than the mooncake itself, haha!
