    Yeah! That's what i think too! The older brands tend not to try new flavours heheh.

    I love TA ZHONG GUO's mooncakes. Still the best and they keep their packaging the old style. We are paying for the mooncakes not the packaging but if we are talking about giving them to relatives or so, maybe a good packaging would be good. For my case and my family, the quality of the mooncake is more impt than the packaging.

    Raffles Hotel and others

    If you want to get the UOB discount, you're better off at Raffles Hotel. The Plaza Singapura stall will give you the discount too, but not the Taka one. I bought 4 boxes yesterday as a treat for relatives, colleagues and students: Champagne Truffles, XO Chestnut Truffles, Peach Melba, and Pandan Macadamia. Everyone them!

    Bought the Goodwood Park durian ones, but they go off pretty fast - you have to eat them almost immediately (though not as quickly as you'd have to eat the Marriott ones). I'm also looking forward to trying the chempedak ones from Meritus Mandarin tomorrow :wheee: Spent $50 this evening on mid-autumn specialities from Minamoto Kitchoan. I need to finish my mooncakes faster so that I can get another box from Conrad Golden Peony...

    I do think that the more expensive ones are tastier. Not quite so sugary and more delicately flavoured. I'm now looking for a decent "wu ren" mixed nuts mooncake. Most are far too sweet and I disliked those with ham.

    I just went to swensen's and bought 2 boxes of ice cream mooncakes!! i ought to be shot for commiting such a sin but oh well, it's once a year right? Actually wanted the chewy chocolate ones but they were all sold out throughout singapore so i ended up buying the mango,yam,durian and red bean ones

    yesterday went to giant at IMM and realise that the mooncake price range are very very reasonable! besides, the packaging and taste are rather okay too. i dont see any much difference from high end brands for the traditional mooncake. per box of double egg york and white lotus paste is ard $15. there are also well known brands like Xin Li Xiang.

    Hmm... how come the mooncakes can be priced so low? what is the reason behind it? it is the high end ones are fresher ( because Produce everyday ) than those in Giant (because mass produce and put lots of preservatives)?

    *Scratch head*

    just getting curious here.

    i know red beans, and kidney beans, and mung beans....


    still haven't gotten my salted egg yam paste mooncakes.

    um, its not quite silly. i have no idea where it came from either. i googled it though, and found that people made soup out of it.

    did that help? i didn't think so either.
