Mooncakes: Mr Bean & Snaffle’s 

Mooncake festival is round the corner. Eio’s has been great supporter of Goodwood Park Hotel mooncakes for many years. This year, she is trying out different mooncakes for various reasons… 

Firstly, El can eat mooncake now so Mrs Eio needs to source for dairy-free mooncakes. Secondly, it’s time for a change. Lol. 

Yes. Mr Bean’s traditional mooncakes are made of soy flour. White Lotus is (2pcs@$19.80) and White Lotus with Double Egg Yolk is (2pcs@$21.80). 

  
 
Mrs Eio think they tastes pretty good. The crust doesn’t crack & crumbles when she cuts the mooncakes. There’s some nuts in the lotus paste which enhance the taste. 

   
Not to mention, Eio kids get the Mr bean lanterns… 

 

Mrs Eio comes across the Snaffle’s mooncakes at Bedok mall B2 & decides to give it a try. She remembers seeing it selling at a lower price Qoo10 ($21.90 as of today) so she purchased the e-ticket before getting her mooncake from the shop.   

The packaging is really pretty. It sure looks nice as gifts… but only for those who love cheesy stuff. 

 
Mrs Eio is very impressed with the packaging. She purchased the green tea & coconut flavoured mooncakes. 

  
 
The staff at Snaffle’s advised Mrs Eio to thaw the mooncakes for 3 hours before consumption but Mrs Eio starts cutting the mooncakes after thawing it for 1 hour. 

   
Since they are not totally thawed, the mooncake tastes a little like icecream cheese mooncakes (with matcha & coconut flavours). 

  
After eating the thawed ones, frankly speaking, Mrs Eio prefers the frozen ones because they taste less cheesy. Nevertheless, it’s really something different from the usual traditional or bing pi (snow skin) mooncake. If you like cheesy stuff, then try it!!
