This year, I am making it a point to only talk about interesting and unique moon cakes. As you can well imagine, we have so many moon cake brands out there. This used to be the bastion of hotels, but now, everyone, like EVERYONE, including SIA is jumping on the bandwagon.
Well, to each his own, but if you’re looking for something a bit different this year, maybe you can consider these moon cakes.
Häagen-Dazs Ice-cream Mooncakes
Featuring 4 of Häagen-Dazs’s most favoured flavours – Macadamia Nut, Strawberry, Cookies and Cream, and Chocolate, each ice-cream mooncake comes with a unique layer of chocolate printed with designs that represent the blossoms under the full moon, wishing for a blissful and tranquil life. For the “yolk”, a bright amber ball of mango sorbet is nestled within the ice cream centre, symbolising the wholeness of the full moon. To add crunch and texture, a peanut-butter chocolate malt ball base or sweet meal base greets you.
I could eat these any time of the year!

Marina Bay Sands Sweet Spot Snowskin Mooncakes
These are snowskin mooncakes with a slight difference. The Eco Jade is a snow skin mooncake featuring sustainable Javanese chocolate, caramelised bananas and cashew nuts wraped within a soft and fragrant snow skin made from Pandan leaves. Or you could choose the Salted Caramel Almond Crunch mooncake, filled with a velvety blend of salted caramel and chocolate. The Dark Chocolate Orange Grand Marnier with rich dark chocolate ganache and a touch of tanginess from the orange liqueur does seem to transform what we know of moon cakes into a fine dining
