Happy Mid-Autumn Festival!

Mid-Autumn FestivalIt's Mid-Autumn Festival today...

let's enjoy mooncakes with a cuppa hot tea, watch the lil' kids walking around the neighbourhood carrying lanterns (and maybe recall back the good ol' days when you were the one walking the neighbourhood :D), all while enjoying the beautiful moon in its full glory..

On mooncakes, there're all sorts of flavors out there nowadays. No more just the traditional lotus paste with yolk; now there's flavors like tiramisu, cappucino oreo, and dragonfruit even! LOL yup, my home happens to have the above flavors [gifts from ppl] but yet to try them so no reviews. But I am already doubting the dragonfruit mooncake..the combination sounds so weird, don't you think so? :S

Haagen-dazs also came out with ice-cream mooncakes for the occassion. There are 4 flavors; cookies & cream, macadamia nut, strawberry, and chocolate. They even have "egg yolks" inside made of mango sorbet. Innovative indeed and pricey too~~

Have you tried the Häagen Daz mooncakes before? Nice or not? =P

Catherine said...

yeah, I tried the strawberry and chocolate..taste just like ice-cream lo :P but with mango sorbet in the middle..

I prefer choc over strawberry, the strawberry's outer skin layer not so nice compared to choc's\

macadamia nut and cookies & cream still in the fridge :P
