Star Wars mooncakes by Mei Xin Mooncakes Hong Kong

I bought these for the metal cases.
Yes, the primary motivation paying for the boxes!

However, I was pretty confident that Hong Kong mooncakes can’t be that bad, though I did have my reservations about the chocolate ones.

I mean, what if it was milky and saccharinely sweet?

Anyhow, I took my chances and rushed to the nearest Village Grocer to grab one each since both are nice!

Here is my video at “unboxing” them.
The metal cases are of solid quality and the mooncakes are delicious!

Naturally I prefer the custard version over the chocolate, though I could assure you that the chocolate used are of quality and not overly sweet.

The new mooncake packaging comes in two different versions – the black packaging features the face of Darth Vader and it has 4 (45g each) lava chocolate mooncakes embossed with the Imperial sign while the white Stormtrooper one consists of four custard lava mooncakes (45g each) bearing the imprint of the Rebel Alliance emblem..

And as a bonus, the BACK of the covers sports a cool Star Wars design as well!

RM106 for each is worth a buy (personally for me) because the current prices for hotel/restaurant chain mooncakes are going for RM20 – RM30 each (with nice packaging) but the flavours are so predictable – lotus, white lotus, pandan lotus, more lotus, sesame lotus, and LOTUS.

Ok, you get the drift right?

If you buy 2 like I did, it is RM189 (RM23 off).

Where to buy:
Jaya Grocer branches: I got mine this morning at Tropicana Mutiara BU.
As precaution, I had my PA contacting a few branches near me to ensure stock availability before rushing over.
So far all branches have stock.

Well, better grab them quick before they ran out!

Like I said, the mooncakes are of good quality and taste pretty awesome. Furthermore these imported from Hong Kong.
And rather than most common oriental boxes or circular casing or wooden packaging, you get limited edition STAR WARS metal cases. 🙂

    cute concept! it’s too bad the mooncake festival is usually at this time of the year, whereas the star wars movies now keep getting released at the end of the year … otherwise, the timing between the mooncakes and the movies would be better … hmmm, i’m confused tho if the stormtrooper box has rebel alliance imprinted mooncakes inside … i thought the stormtroopers and rebels are enemies? or maybe not. i’m not a major star wars fan 🙂

      Gosh Sean, u do know your star wars! I for one, was just thrilled to get them for the boxes LOL

      Anyhow my fren explained it this in his way – while trying to make me understand hahhahah! –>

      Sean raised a point that I’ve considered also. Storm troopers are Imperials. Having the Alliance logo on the Stormtrooper box is a little off.

      Business answer: because Stormtroopers sell better than Rebel guard picture

      Aesthetic answer: because rebel guards aren’t white and doesn’t contrast as much with Vader

      Movie answer: remember the time when Luke had to impersonate as a Stormtrooper to rescue Leia?
