East Ocean Mooncake 2010

Mini Custard and White Lotus Paste Mooncakes

East Ocean Mini Snow Skin Custard Mooncake has always been my sisters' favourite and having ate several brands of custard mooncakes back to back, the key difference lies in how strong one wants the custard (i.e. milky and rich in egg yolk) to be. In fact, from the photo, one can expect East Ocean's custard filling to be softer and milder. Perhaps, that is the characteristic my sisters like about East Ocean Mini Snow Skin Custard Mooncakes.

As for the Mini Snow Skin White Lotus Paste Mooncake, Yuan likes it for its sweet and smooth lotus paste. Surprisingly, there is a slight difference in its snow skin between the 2 flavours, somehow or rather, the snow skin for the white lotus paste is rougher and slightly dry.

Note that this was purchased on the 5th Sept 2010 and that a box of 9 assorted mini snow skin was priced at $23 at the Takashimaya fair (at that point of time). Referring to the pricing displayed on their website, consumers have an option of buying in box of 4 or 9 and is alot cheaper than most hotels' mooncakes. Apart from custard and white lotus paste, there are also green tea and yam paste available in their mini snow skin collection.
