This range has Sweet Corn, Pandan, Chocolate Mocha, Coconut, Durian, etc. The shape is oval with some chinese characters of 'Flower', 'Moon' and I couldn't remember the 3rd character :-P. The size is about W 4 cm x L 5.5 cm x 3.5 cm H... the weight? Goes in with just one gulp!
Here's how the Chocolate paste filling for the Mocha looked inside. Not as nice as the Traditional Mooncake with Salted Duck Egg yolk inside. The manufacturer firstly creates the base, add the filling and then fills up the mould with Agar-Agar - so the end result is like the pict! With this Agar-Agar mooncakes you need to consume them within 4 days, if not the product would turned stale or mouldy. So, it needs to be kept in refrigerator all time.
This is my new addition of mooncake containers. The outer cover is made of wood but the drawers were of thick boards. To stop the little drawers from falling out, a pair of longer than your usual chopsticks act as stopper. Cool eh? Overall, I like the unique Japanese concept for this year. I wanted to buy another set but it was no more available as the festival was coming to an end... :-( I wanted an extra because I'm thinking of converting the container into tea set keeper. Well, looks like I have to wait for next year then :-D
These are the drawers with the mooncakes inside. Since it's a limited edition, I can't choose mooncakes of my choice. Some edition comes with a container of chinese tea leaves - if not mistaken is oolong tea.
Well, until next year with another batch of new mooncakes. Now, I want to eat them before it's gone from the plate! I wonder if other foodie bloggers from other countries has such festival to honor the Moon? I would really love to know about it!
