What I like about Tai Thong when it comes to mooncakes is their consistency in coming out with quality well-loved traditional ones year after year and never fails in surprising us with a few new flavours too. For this year’s Mid Autumn Festival, Tai Thong’s Mooncake Master Chef Yiu has come up with 5 new flavours, from refreshing fruity tangs to the distinct taste of our King of Fruits.
The mooncakes are all visually pleasing and why not, since they are inspired by our colourful local fruits. The new flavours are:
Honey Grapefruit and Mixed Nuts
Refreshing honey grapefruit paste is perfectly paired with dried fruits, winter melon, almonds and sesame seeds.
Dragon fruit and Coconut Single Yolk
A novel blend of dragon fruit, aromatic coconut and salted egg yolk, this divine creation is a fruity sensation.
Snow Skin Honey Lemon Grapefruit
The sweet fragrance of honey grapefruit paste is offset by the zesty tinge of lemon – a delicious combination indeed.
Tai Thong’s wildly successful Imperial Musang King Royale mooncakes, launched last year remains on the list this year due to the great demand for their full bodied flavour and aroma.
This year, Tai Thong steps up their game by introducing two new editions to the Durian Mooncake range – D24 and Red Prawn, made from 100% premium grade durians, both with their own distinct taste and texture, aptly named the Premium Durian Duet.
“It was crucial for me to stay true to the flavours of these fantastic durians, as the aroma and essence of the fruits are precious and loved. We are careful to ensure the snow skin case that envelops the delicious durian filling complements the flavours of the durians perfectly,” said Master Chef Yiu.
Tai Thong’s Limited Edition Corporate Box (RM138 per box) makes for a stunning and refined gift for business associates, clients or other corporate partners. Featuring a spread of eight mini Tai Thong mooncakes, a mix of both traditional and new flavours, it is indeed an impressive and delicate gift for all.
