3 Ways To Get The Best Mooncake Deals In Town

Alright, let’s get straight to the point – who thinks mooncakes are expensive?

The thing here is, some would say mooncakes are expensive, but if you count in the effort and time used to make mooncakes, perhaps the price is not that pricey after all.

Anyway, we are not here to argue about that. What we want to do is to share how can you get the best mooncake deal in town! Want to know more? Read on!

1. Buy During Promotion

It’s not rocket science really. Buying anything during promotion is by far the easiest way to get the best deal. How do you spot them? Well, some mooncake manufacturers run a month-long promotion selling their mooncakes at promotional booths. You can easily find them in shopping malls or Mid-Autumn fairs. There are even mooncake manufacturers that offer discount codes or cashbacks when you purchase a certain number of mooncakes or do online purchases.

2. Buy After The Mooncake Season

The whole idea of buying mooncakes is for you to enjoy them during the mooncake season. But you can still enjoy mooncakes after the Mid-Autumn festival too. Mooncake prices can drop up to 30% and more once the season is over! Considering the fact that mooncakes have a long shelf life, if you love mooncakes and don’t mind having them after the season, then this is the best way for you to enjoy as many mooncake flavours as you want at a fraction of its original price! Take note that popular flavours may not be available anymore.

3. Buy From Home Bakers

This is a bit tricky. The prices for mass-produced mooncakes can be cheaper than home bakers. However, without the brand name, expensive ingredients and fancy packaging, the price of home bakers mooncakes can be significantly cheaper. You’ll need to scout around for the best prices though. On the plus point, if you choose to buy from home bakers, think of it that you are supporting their dream to someday become one of the big brands too, or that you’re encouraging someone to go after his/her passion. You can’t get a better deal than that, can you?

Come to think of it, we still have 2 mooncakes in the fridge. Off to cut and enjoy a slice!

Top 5 Mooncake Flavours According To Our Tummy

Do you know how many mooncake flavours are there in the market? If your answer is yes, we take our hats off you!

We’re not sure about other countries but here in Malaysia, new mooncake flavours are introduced to the market annually. That makes a lot of sense because mooncakes are highly versatile. They can be filled with all sorts of filling – sweet or savoury!

So how do you choose which filling to buy? In our case, we like to stick to the classics. Go with traditional flavours, something you’re familiar with. Once you’ve gotten a hang of it, move on to non-traditional flavours.

Let’s cut to the chase and see the top 5 flavours according to our tummy.

1. Mixed Nuts Mooncake 五仁月饼

This mooncake flavour is commonly found in K’s home town. It’s a pretty healthy mooncake since it has five kinds of nuts or kernels such as walnuts, almonds, sesame seeds, melon seeds, red beans and etc. Naturally, the mooncake has a nutty and sweet flavour because of the fillings. We love this particular mooncake flavour to bits mainly because it reminds us of his home town.

2. Red Bean Mooncake 豆沙月饼

The classic sweet red bean mooncake flavour never goes wrong. The smooth and rich taste of sweet bean paste always brings back our childhood memories of eating bread and pastries filled with sweet bean paste. There’s just something comforting about biting into a piece of your childhood.

3. White Lotus Mooncake 莲蓉月饼

Ooohh, and here’s another one of our favourites! The lotus mooncake is filled with silky smooth white lotus paste. We absolutely adore this flavour and make an effort to find the less sweeter option for family and friends.

4. Salted Egg Yolk Mooncake 蛋黄月饼

Let’s get this straight, the entire mooncake is not filled with salted egg yolk. Rather, the mooncake is filled with white lotus or any other flavours and at the very centre of the mooncake, you’ll find 1 or 2 salted egg yokes. Sounds crazy to put something salty with something sweet but it works! This odd combination is what makes this mooncake so popular. Just try it!

5. Green Tea Mooncake 茶叶月饼

Okay, so we’re taking a huge risk with this. Green tea flavoured mooncakes are undeniably not one of our top favourites, but considering the fact that they’re pretty healthy and not as sweet compared to other mooncake fillings, we thought, hey, let’s just put it in the list. Don’t get us wrong, we love green tea. But green tea mooncakes? Hey, if we love green tea, surely we can learn to love green tea mooncakes too. For health!

There you have it, our top 5 mooncake flavours! The best thing about these flavours are you can find them easily. The only difference would be the textures, sweetness and smoothness levels.

Let us know if you love any of these flavours too!

10 Popular Mooncake Types You Should Try

The Mooncake festival, Lantern festival or Mid-Autumn festival, whichever you choose to call it, the festival is almost here!

We’re super blessed because halal mooncakes are common in Malaysia. You can get it in supermarkets, bakeries, hotel restaurants, even homemade ones! The choices are limitless!

If you’re new to mooncakes, then you’ve come to the right place to learn more about these delightful bite-sized delicacies synonymous with the Mid-Autumn.

Do take note that we are writing about the popular mooncake types, including non-halal types. At any rate, we encourage you to inquire from the sellers and confirm with them about the halal status of their mooncakes.

The Mooncake Types

Cantonese Mooncakes

Originally from Southern China, the classic Cantonese mooncake comes encased in a thin brown-coloured skin, usually filled with lotus paste with either one or two salted duck egg yokes. It comes with other fillings too, like red bean, nuts, even preserved meats. This is by far the most commonly found mooncake in Malaysia and Singapore, and yes, it happens to be our favourite mooncake type too.

Halal versions available. Popular brands include Tai Thong, Oversea and Baker’s Cottage.

Shanghai Mooncakes

Shanghai mooncakes are baked using short crust pastry, so you will have that buttery, crumbly texture. The filling is a rich lotus paste and a salted duck egg yolk. These mooncakes look like large scones and you can sometimes find sesame seeds being sprinkled on top.

Halal versions available. We found it on Shoppee!

Suzhou Mooncakes

Also known as Su-style mooncakes, the skins of these mooncakes are soft, sweet, and flaky. Suzhou mooncakes are savoury and usually stuffed with minced pork meat. The mooncakes are also stamped with edible red ink.

Teochew Mooncakes

Usually filled with yam paste and a salted duck egg yolk, Teochew mooncakes also come in other flavours, such as red bean paste or mung bean paste. The spiral-like flaky crust wraps around the sweet filling, giving you that mesmerizing exterior.

Beijing Mooncakes

Crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. It uses a lot of sesame oil.

Hokkien Mooncakes

These particular mooncakes were once known as ‘Scholar Cakes’ as they were given to those sitting for the Imperial Examination. These white-coloured mooncakes are often filled with melon seeds, tangerine peel and winter melon. Also available are savoury options stuffed with minced meat.

Snow Skin Mooncakes

Originating from Hong Kong, snow skin mooncakes are not baked. The skin is made from glutinous rice flour and the texture is similar to mochi – elastic, chewy and soft. Fillings come in various kinds such as red bean paste or lotus paste. Best taken cold.

Halal versions available. Popular brands include Tai Thong, Oversea and Baker’s Cottage.

Ice Cream Mooncakes

The modern twist to the traditional mooncake types, ice cream mooncakes like how the name describes it are literally made of ice cream!

Halal versions available.

Jelly Mooncakes

Yes! An entire mooncake made out of jelly! Or in our part of the world, agar-agar! They come in all sorts of flavours and colours, and get this, they even come with a jelly version of the salted duck egg yolk!

Halal versions available.

Chocolate Mooncakes

The chocolate mooncake is another modern twist. The crust is made from chocolate and the filling can Nutella, chocolate chip, oats, berries, peanut butter, the works!

Halal versions available.

Bonus!

So you think we’ve concluded our mooncake types post? Think again! But rather than make an elaborate post, we’ll just give you the names. Be on the lookout for coffee, tiramisu and caramel macchiato type mooncakes. These are great for all those coffee lovers out there.
