Traditional celebrations such as the annual Mid-Autumn Festival are great excuses for family to get together. There are the lanterns and there are laughter, stories and…yes, food – mooncakes to be precise. This year, BreadTalk’s extensive mooncake collection will complement rich family moments as loved ones gather over traditional yummy mooncakes along with the ‘hip and happening’ contemporary ones with delectable delicious fillings that will fit any tastebuds.
Centred on the theme of ‘花好月圆, 家节团圆‘ – Home, Light Up my World’, BreadTalk hopes to bring everyone together to celebrate this joyous festival over a delightful box of mooncakes. To commemorate the Singapore Botanic Gardens attaining UNESCO World Heritage Site status, BreadTalk’s 2015 mooncakes come in exquisitely designed boxes inspired by Singapore’s national flower, the Vanda Miss Joaquim. Let’s take a look:
PRESTIGE (S$47.05-S$54.05 for 4 pieces)
Prestige is a timeless collection of BreadTalk’s well-loved classic flavours: Lotus with Yolk Blend, Lotus with Melon Seeds, and Wu Ren mixed nut paste, the most traditional of all mooncakes. Crafted with premium preservative-free natural white lotus paste, the special yolk blend variety also promises a generous bite of smooth egg yolk evenly-distributed through every slice. Each Prestige box features a distinctive Chinese character: Blossoms (花), Goodness (好), Moon (月), and Reunion (圆). Collect all four boxes to complete a family pack that forms the auspicious Mid-Autumn Festival idiom “花好月圆”, which means to be in a state of joy and bliss together.
JOYOUS A (S$69.45 for 8 pieces) Mao Shan Wang Durian Snowskin Mooncakes
The Joyous series will bring joy to snowskin mooncake lovers (like me) with its light and refreshingly chewy snowskin dough. Joyous A presents the new Mao Shan Wang Durian snowskin mooncakes made with only the best Mao Shan Wang durians.
JOYOUS B (S$51.05 for 8 pieces) Alcoholic Snowskin Mooncakes
Joyous B showcases eight mini snowskin mooncakes, each enveloping a Valrhona truffle imported from France, with an exciting medley of four flavours: Coffee Baileys Truffle, 12 years Macallan Whiskey Truffle, and the new Cherry Brandy Truffle and Lychee Martini Truffle.
ROYAL (S$95.05 for 10 pieces)
The elegant Vanda Miss Joaquim, set against a backdrop of royal orange symbolising luxury and success, is a picture of quiet sophistication. The open box lid, reminiscent of an eagle spreading its wings in flight, lends an air of elegance and prestige to the occasion. This generous selection is presented with 10 regular and mini traditional mooncakes including the new Green Tea Azuki, Mini Chocolate Brownie, Mini Yuzu Lotus, Mini Jasmine Tea, and Mini Black Sesame, bringing much joy to everyone this festive period.
HELLO KITTY (S$59.80 for 4 pieces)
Undeniably the cutest mooncake in town this year – the Hello Kitty character series mooncakes, which are exclusive to BreadTalk. Packaged in an adorable, trademark red Hello Kitty makeup toolbox with a built-in mirror. This limited-edition set consists of two pieces each of the Lotus with Macadamia, Lotus with Cranberries, and BreadTalk-exclusive Lotus with Yolk Blend mooncakes – “purrfect” for those who appreciate all things bright and beautiful! It comes with its own set of cutesy cutleries too!
