2016 Mooncakes by Conrad Centennial Singapore!

Upping my game from the annual Malaysian mooncakes research, I will be focusing on the mooncake varieties from the Lion City – Singapore this year!

And just for Conrad, I’ll be offering complimentary (yes, no charges) hand-carry service from SG to KL.
Just because I love Conrad that much. 🙂

As you know I travel to SG often so if you are serious about getting your hands on these exquisite mooncakes, drop me a message on fb.com/RebeccaSawBlog and I’ll let you know my schedule.
You would have to pick up from TTDI as I won’t be able to deliver to anyone directly. You can opt to use NeonRunner (use my codeNEONS9M5” for RM20 off!) or GoGet if you can’t pick them up personally.

So, here goes, the varieties that I’ve tasted from Conrad.

I’ll highlight the snowskin range first as these are the ones that I felt were out-of-the-ordinary from the snowskin variants offered here in KL.

I have come to realize over the years that alcoholic mooncakes are much sought-after.
One was due to the fact that many hotels (which forms the bulk of the mooncakes sale with their pretty packaging) are halal-certified and pork/alcohol free.
Likewise other independent mooncake suppliers and makers are steer away from liquor variety to in hopes to secure better sales, as being pork/alcohol-free is a big factor in Malaysia.

But there are some of us who love alcohol in anything, mooncakes included.
So other than a limited number of outlets to buy alcoholic mooncakes from, you can be like me, order them from Singapore!

Conrad 2016 mooncake range offers 2 alcohol-infused mini snowskin mooncakes – Champagne and Strawberry and Rum and Raisin, in addition to two other new non-alcoholic flavours – Cranberry Cheese and Green Tea with White Chocolate.

With a decadent champagne flavour comes an equally decadent packaging in the form of a luxurious treasure box in Velvet Red, Luxe Gold, and a limited edition Antique Gold, with subtle floral print.
I’m a collector of mooncake boxes and after holding them in my hands, I loved the solid feel and luxe image presented when gifting family, associates and friends with one of these.
The design is timeless, the colors elegant and there are no compartments within so it is perfect as a storage box, or to be reuse as a gift box.

Tastewise my picks are the Strawberry Champagne and Green Tea with Chocolate.
The Rum and Raisin is a classic too, though the rum flavour were pretty much limited to raisins.

For the traditional variants I would commend these mooncakes for their low sugar and low oil properties.
Picking them up with my hands, these mooncakes doesn’t leave greasy residue on my fingers and I was able to devour quite a bit without going on sugar high.
My pick of the lot is the Traditional Baked with Mixed Nuts. Those who doesn’t fancy wintermelon would be pleased to know that the offending wintermelon scent is non-existent in this one.

Other traditional choices are the Traditional Baked Double Yolk Mooncake, Traditional Baked Single Yolk Mooncake and the Sweet Potato Filo Pastry Mooncake.

For orders you can surf over to http://connoisseur.sg/assets/pdf/Conrad_Mooncake-OrderingForm.pdf and place your order or place them though me.

Do bear in mind that champagne snowskin has a light champagne taste, discernible, but do not expect it to be as strong as say, rum.
