As much as I try to avoid being overly superstitious, it's hard not to feel a bit fearful towards this dreaded month every year where we're warned to avoid making big decisions, signing contracts, moving to a new home and of course, getting married or doing anything wedding related. It's also this month when Chinese all over the world would take extra pre-caution against accidents and sickness. Finally, it's over and it's time to celebrate!
Speaking of which, check out Crystal Jade Singapore's beautiful mooncake collection! We were so lucky to receive this pretty box filled with two Traditional Baked Mooncakes and four colorful delicate snowskin ones.
Take a close look at the Traditional Baked Mooncakes. We got two flavours to try namely the Low Sugar with White Lotus Paste with Single Yolk and the Mixed Nuts and Ham. The first one was pretty much the most popular kind which is also what we used to have a lot of in Manila. I love how the lotus paste wasn't too sweet allowing you to enjoy a bigger slice than usual. It's low sugar which I personally prefer over the no sugar type which could mean the addition of sugar substitutes.
However, the biggest surprise came from the Mixed Nuts and Ham. It consists of jinhua ham which gives a nice salty kick complementing the sweet lotus paste. Normally, when I get to try mixed nuts mooncakes, I would end up so disappointed with the lack of nuts inside but this one got nuts overlapped with nuts in every bite. It has a nice salty, sweet and nutty flavor which will surely be a hit this Mooncake season.
I got to say that I enjoyed all the Snowskin Mooncakes the most and I heard that stocks are quickly running out so better head over to the nearest Crystal Jade outlet near you to get your box. Hurry!
