LOOKING for that perfect mooncake—beautiful as much as it is delicious—to give family and friends and enjoy on your own, too, this Mid-Autumn Festival?
Chinese communities in Asia, including Chinoys, honest to goodness believe that the best one is Hong Kong MX Mooncake, which, according to the 1998 to 2018 Nielsen Research Report on the Mooncake Market in Hong Kong, is the best-selling mooncake brand in Hong Kong for 21 consecutive years now.
Manufactured and distributed by Hong Kong Mei Xin, these premium mooncakes command quite a cult following. They need to be pre-ordered way before the Mid-Autumn Festival, also known as the Mooncake Festival. Some Chinoys even go to the extent of making a trip to Hong Kong just to buy their supply of Hong Kong MX Mooncakes to gift family and friends with.
This year, however, there is no need to do that, as Hong Kong MX Mooncakes make themselves more accessible to mooncake lovers in Metro Manila. They are available in pop-up stores in SM Mall of Asia and Uni-Mart Capitol Commons on a limited run, specifically until September 22, 2019. Many variants are available, including the Lotus Seed Paste Mooncake with 2 Yolks that has made Hong Kong MX famous the world over, as well as the brand’s reduced sugar series, mixed nuts series, yolk series, and lava and custard mooncake series.
What’s more: Those who buy mooncakes at Hong Kong MX’s pop-up store at SM Mall of Asia get to play the dice game at the booth, and those with a single receipt purchase amounting to P5,000 get to win a mini mooncake.
Hong Kong MX Mooncakes are also available for delivery through Lazada until September 22. Every single receipt purchase amounting to P5,000 entitles buyers to an additional mini mooncake.
