2016 Mid-Autumn Festivals' Mooncakes

Happy celebrating Hari Raya Korban and Mid-Autumn Festival, people!

As some of you already know, the Mid-Autumn or Lantern Festival is one of my favorite festivals of the year! And speaking of lantern festival, Mooncakes are a must have! This year I bought quite a number of mooncakes to try, mainly from Purple Cane and Tai Thong!

Purple Cane's Mooncakes

I got the Rose Tea Bamboo Charcoal Lotus Paste & White Tea Purple Potato Lotus Paste ones! They tasted really sweet but super good! Really love these!! Recommended to try, people!

Divided this mooncake into 12 pieces to share with my colleagues. I only had one tiny piece LOL.

I also got these three traditional mooncakes in the shape of Takoyakis. The packaging is so cute, though if I'm not mistaken Purple Cane's packaging is the same every year.

I thought they all tasted pretty normal and blend except the Green Tea one. The skin is thicker than the past too so that explains.

Tai Thong's Mooncake

 I have actually been wanting to try Tai Thong because the flavors look interesting so I got myself the Snow Skin Yam Paste Single Yolk, Snow Skin Black Sesame & Green Beans with Cheese and Sesame Paste Lotus Yolk.

I tries a slice of the Snow Skin Black Sesame & Green Beans with Cheese and started having this coughing frenzy. I didn't like it at all, the Green Bean with Cheese is a total failure and no, I totally didn't enjoy the snow skin yuckkk *thumbs down*

After that I was a bit hesitant to try the other snow skin yam one so I cut a tiny piece to try, definitely don't wanna give myself anoter bad surprise. Thankfully, this didn't taste as awful, the yam paste tasted mild and credit to the salted yolk too. Still don't like the snow skin, though.

The traditional lotus paste one tasted the most normal, not too sweet so I'm guessing our older generation would appreciate it.
