MOONCAKES are forever evolving. These days, they come in different shapes, sizes, and designs. Even their filling and the number of salted egg yolks that can be found in each mooncake differ to give customers a wide range of choices. More so with premium brands of mooncakes, such as Hong Kong MX Mooncake, because their mooncakes come in cans, and even the design of these cans change from year to year.
Here are Hong Kong MX’s offerings for Mid-Autumn Festival 2022:
Among the classic mooncakes available this year are the White Lotus Seed Paste Mooncake with 2 Egg Yolks and Lotus Seed Paste Mooncake with 2 Egg Yolks. Both are made with meticulously selected lotus seeds that are boiled and processed into the smooth and creamy treats loved all over the world.
Even the can which serves as the mooncakes’ packaging always bear the traditional Chinese myth characters of the Mid-Autumn Festival even as they change designs per year—Chang’e, the Chinese moon goddess; and the rabbit; among others.
LAVA CUSTARD MOONCAKES
The traditional lotus seed paste filling of Hong Kong MX Mooncakes sometimes gives way to a more innovative creamy lava custard filling and crispy crust. It is the result of a double baking technique using top quality savory egg yolks and premium ingredients to achieve the lava custard consistency.
Lava custard mooncakes promise an elevated experience when they are reheated in a microwave oven and cut in half to reveal the golden custard melting from the core.
The newest addition to the Hong Kong MX mooncake collection, released for this Mooncake Festival, is the Marvel – Spider-Man Tokachi Red Bean Mooncake in a special cylindrical gift box adorned with the face of Spider-Man. The can has a hidden mechanism in the lid that can project the face of Spider-Man, and—what do you know?—each of the four mooncakes in the can is embossed with the superhero icon!
