Some of these mooncakes have actual gold (dust) on them!
Mooncake festival, or more formerly known as mid-Autumn festival, is coming up again! Which means mooncakes are back on the shelves! Yay! And this year, we look at the most expensive mooncakes in Singapore (yes, just looking).
In the event you need to buy a gift for your future mother-in-law or curry favour with a difficult boss, you don't want to be getting cheap mooncakes from your neighbourhood bakery. You will want to impress them with the most expensive mooncakes in Singapore!
At a whopping S$18.25 per mooncake, this is already on the lower side of the most expensive mooncakes in Singapore. The Fullerton Hotel's mooncakes come in boxes of 4 and the premium mooncakes go for S$73 for 4 pieces! One of the most unique flavours they have this year is the “Mile Zero” Milo Dinosaur Snowskin Mooncake. Wow, we can't wait to taste that!
For S$18.50 per mooncake, Intercontinental Singapore's mooncakes are priced slightly higher than Fullerton's. But you might want to splurge just for the packaging alone. The mooncakes are packed into a beautiful oriental box with Man Fu Yuan’s trademark floral pattern. The Black Sesame with Ambrosial Osmanthus and White Lotus with Mandarin Peel snow skin mooncakes are their latest flavours.
Pan Pacific may be selling their premium mooncakes at S$22.20 each, but it's absolutely worth the price for a stunning presentation and mind-blowing flavours. If the person you're gifting this to is a big fan of durian, then you can't miss out their Mao Shan Wang durian-flavoured mooncakes.
Savoury mooncake flavours are hard to come by, but Marriott Tang Plaza Hotel proves its innovation once again as this is where you will find savoury mooncakes for S$20.50 each. Find unique combinations like their gold-dusted White Lotus Seed Paste Baked Mooncake with Chrysanthemum, Mixed Grains, Serrano Ham and Salted Egg Yolk or Chicken Bak Kwa Baked Mooncake with Assorted Nuts.
For the more health conscious (because one mooncake can go up to 1000 calories!), you might want to consider the mooncakes at Marina Bay Sands. Here, you will find their new reduced-sugar Multigrain and the Pu Erh Tea mooncakes. A box of four traditional mooncakes is going for S$78.
The highlight of their collection is the new Durian Snowskin mooncake, but also not forgetting innovative flavours like Royal Chocolate Hazelnut Snowskin and even a localised Ondeh Ondeh Snowskin filled with Gula Melaka (Palm Sugar) and fine Coconut bits. A box of four for the classic baked favourites is selling for S$76.
Raffles Hotel is introducing a whole new line of mooncakes this year with their handcrafted creations like the Acai Berry and Chia Seeds Snowskin Mooncake. Also riding the health-conscious wave, they are bringing into the mix a Pine Nuts, Macadamia Nuts and White Lotus Paste Mooncake. For their treasure baked mooncakes, a box of four goes for S$76 nett.
A box of four of its White Lotus Seed Paste with Double Yolk mooncakes is going for S$82. But you can enjoy early bird privileges when you purchase online between 16 July to 19 August 2018.
