The latest snowskin mooncake in Fairmont Singapore’s stable, Golden Caramel Crunch, offers everything for a winning treat: IG-worthy looks, delightful texture and delicate flavours. Also in the line-up is a zesty Imperial Yuzu and the very luxurious Rum & Raisin Chocolate Truffle.
Raffles Singapore’s champagne truffle and ganache snowskin mooncake gets a pretty-in-pink counterpart: The strawberry yoghurt snowskin mooncake is embedded with a white chocolate pearl centre to delight with its sweet and tangy flavour.

Pandan with gula melaka and white lotus seed paste with egg yolk snowskin mooncakes are firm favourites, but The Fullerton Hotel Singapore aims to impress with its ingenuity with creations such as kopi with salted Hokkaido milk, and tangerine lemon with pistachios.
We could hardly bear to cut into these floral beauties by InterContinental Singapore, but they’re not just pretty faces. Man Fu Yuan stays on theme with this new Garden Collection, which comprises roselle and red date; rosemary, almond and green tea; rose and pistachio; and pandan and macadamia.
Spiced mooncakes? If they work as well as these from Regent Singapore, we could get behind them. Summer Palace returns to the nation’s entrepôt beginnings with its two new flavours, pineapple and pink peppercorn, and cinnamon red bean with spiced wine.
Did you know prickly pear is part of the cactus family, is edible and makes for a fine mooncake ingredient? We didn’t, until we met one of Goodwood Park Hotel‘s new creations, the on-trend millennial-pink prickly pear with bergamot snowskin mooncake with pear bits embedded. Its tart citrus flavours keep it fresh and intriguing.
