Goodwood Park Hotel Assorted Snowskin Mooncakes 2012

Every year at this time of the year, Chinese normally enjoy the Mid Autumn Festival with Mooncakes.

Over the years, the way this festival has evolved is quite interesting. In the olden days, people used to savour mooncakes and tea while gazing at the (round) moon. In addition, tradition Mooncakes itself has also evolved The filling inside used to be made from lotus paste with an egg yolk in the middle.

Today, even the crust has changed. There are Snowskin Mooncakes that comes in different flavours and must be chilled. The fillings made from paste from durian, banana, mango, chocolate, green tea and many others. There are also deep fried flaky Mooncakes with yam fillings, ice cream Mooncakes and more. We are so spoilt for choices on the type of Mooncakes to buy.

As for me, it is becoming a habit for me to go to Goodwood Park to buy its Snowskin Mooncakes.

There are different types of mooncakes to choose from. As usual, I ordered the Assorted Snowskin Mooncakes. 
Blood Orange with Banana Snowskin Mooncake
The Blood Orange with Banana Snowskin Mooncake is one of the two new creation by Goodwood Park Hotel. It is made from red orange pulp with banana. If you are wondering, the other creation is the Mao Shang Wang Snowskin Mooncake.
Mango with Pomelo Snowskin Moocake
D24 Durian Snowskin Mooncake
Cempedak Snowskin Mooncake
The Mango with Pomelo, D24 Durian and Cempedak Snowskin Mooncakes are a yearly feature due to their popularity. 

Overall, I still like Goodwood Park Hotel's Snowskin Mooncakes. Their Mooncakes are filled with not just rich creamy paste of the respective fruits but also chunks of the fruits to enhance the flavour and texture with each  bite. The different combination of fruity flavours provided a balance in taste, was refreshing. In addition, the snowskins (crust) are so soft.

Furthermore, the Snowskin Mooncakes are made with no preservatives and will need to be consumed within 3 days after purchase. They will need to be stored in the freezer after purchase.

This year, Goodwood Park Hotel has changed the tote thermal bag. It is still yellow colour as yellow has been the signature colour for the hotel's mooncake packaging since 2007. With this Tote Thermal Bag, the mooncakes will be kept cool for an hour after purchase. This is to ensure freshness and allow customers to bring it back home to store in their freezer. Also, these bags are re-usable.

  1. amazing, i like this very much, nice collection
    thanks for sharing

  2. Oooo this year KL also got the Musang King durian. I would love to go to Singapore and try all the mooncakes there. Hehe.

    1. Make a trip down to Singapore from 30th Aug to 30 Sept and visit Takashimaya. They have an annual Mid Autumn Festival there and features many restaurants and hotels' mooncakes.One of the most comprehensive around here.

  3. I have been discovering new types of mooncakes too, something different than the usual with red bean or lotus paste. I actually enjoy the fruity version as you have shared. In fact, these are not very sweet and taste better.

  4. Magnificent site. Lots of useful info here. I’m sending it to a few friends ans additionally sharing in delicious. And naturally, thanks on your effort!
