Hong Kong Mei-Xin Mooncakes 2016 – Lava Chocolate Mooncake is the new trend! (PLUS GIVEAWAY)
Mid-Autumn Festival is always the most anticipated festival for Chinese. Year after year, Hong Kong MX shares with you the most authentic tastes of Mid-Autumn Festival. Their mooncakes are made with a passion for time-honoured recipes and custom, lovingly prepared for your annual get-together of friends and family. Innovative new flavours may please the palate, but nothing comforts the heart as much as a slice of tradition. That’s why Hong Kong MX traditional mooncakes remain the festive goodies of choice for everyone.
Last year, everyone in Singapore went crazy on “Lava Custard Mooncake”. Good news is, Hong Kong MX is introducing a new addition to this series – the “Lava Chocolate Mooncake”. Using French Cacao Barry, each piece of dark chocolate mooncake is filled with a rich chocolate lava, making it an indulgent and decadent mooncake. Housed in an exquisite box, the 4-piece package has a sophisticated gold foil embossed design on an elegant dark box, making it a choice gift for all. For optimal enjoyment: Heat with microwave oven (1000 W) for 3- 5 seconds.
Of course, the “Lava Custard Mooncake” is back this year! Filled with a lava-custard filling which is made from crushed golden salted egg yolk, the creamy and aromatic mooncake brings you to a new level of sensation. The mooncake is made with premium butter and light cream from France, making it fragrant and creamy. It can be instantly enjoyed even without re-heating.
The “Lava Custard Mooncake” comes in a premium jade green box with gold foil embossing. The mooncakes come in a 8-piece package and are ideal for your own enjoyment and as gifts to your loved ones. *For optimal enjoyment: Heat with microwave oven (1000 W) for 3- 5 seconds.
White Lotus Seed Paste Mooncake美心纯正白莲蓉月饼 ($55/4pcs)
The traditional collection is one that all families cannot do without. The joy of sharing mooncakes and the serene moonlight during Mid-Autumn Festival is irreplaceable. For years, Hong Kong MX has been cultivating such joyous moments with mooncakes made in Hong Kong, and baked only with top quality ingredients. The Traditional Collection includes the much coveted “White Lotus Seed Paste Mooncake with 2 Egg Yolks” and “Lotus Seed Paste Mooncake with 2 Egg Yolks”, both made from the best selected lotus seeds and quality salted egg yolks for a silky and aromatic taste.
While the traditional white lotus paste mooncakes are their best-selling items, low sugar options are gaining popularity too. These low sugar mooncakes has a low glycaemic index as it is sweetened mainly with malitol – a sugar alcohol. It is the most natural low sugar option in town, hence it is a good option for elderly parents. The Low Sugar Mooncake Series include both “Low (Reduced) Sugar Mooncake with Pine Nut” and “Low (Reduced) Sugar Mooncake with Egg Yolk”, suitable for those who are health-conscious.

The newly launched “Mooncake Exclusive Selection” is in a packaging bearing a gold embossed design with various festive elements of Mid-Autumn Festival. My favourite flavour is Mei Xin’s “Mixed Nuts Mooncake” which uses quality almonds, walnuts, olive seeds, sesame, and melon seeds in the mixed nuts mooncake. The nuts were chopped coarsely allowing a crunchy texture and satisfied one’s nuts cravings. On the other hand, “Red Bean Paste Mooncake with Chestnut” is made with creamy and tasty red bean paste and top-graded chestnuts to give it a crunch. Both mooncakes will truly bring you the most traditional tastes of Mid-Autumn Festival.
The Premium Series makes the perfect corporate gift and is also the finest choice for your family and friends.

A new mooncake collection this year is “Star Wars Themed Mooncake Collection”. This exclusive Star Wars Set is a collaboration with Disney. The rich and aromatic Egg Custard (Storm Trooper) is made with premium butter from France and light cream and comes off as a great combination of a well-balanced recipe and quality ingredients.
