Duo Flavors, Double Complexity

The Lava Custard Mooncake utilizes the unique ‘double-bake’ technique to produce the one of a kind texture and flavour of the aromatic and smooth silky filling seeping out from its core. An instant hit last year and heavily anticipated to return for the festivities this year, we are adding the ‘Lava Duet Mooncake’ set to the family. The set includes two flavours namely the signature Lava Custard and delectable Lava Chocolate, which comes in a box of eight allowing you to revel in double the enjoyment that are perfect for this celebratory time of year. The ‘Custard Twins Mooncake’ is also back with both the classic and the lava variety. Inspired by the auspicious rabbit, the new packaging is sleek and modern while retaining the vibrant colours that signify the festive celebration.

A New Look for a Classic Flavour

Meanwhile, the flagship products ‘White Lotus Seed Paste Mooncake with 2 Egg Yolks’ and ‘Lotus Seed Paste Mooncake with 2 Egg Yolks’, which have brought global recognition to Hong Kong MX Mooncakes, are also going to be making a Philippine comeback. The white lotus seed paste remains as delicate and velvety as ever, and the lotus seed paste decadent and thick. The new gift box packaging adds a layer of sophistication and magnificence for these alluring classics.

Low Sugar Mooncake Series for the Health-Conscious Individual

Because the Mid-Autumn Mooncake Festival is a celebration for everyone, Hong Kong MX Mooncakes will also be offering the specially created Low Sugar Mooncake Series. The ‘Low Sugar White Lotus Seed Paste Mooncake with Egg Yolk’ comes in boxes of six mooncakes, with each bite exploding with the same rich and memorable flavors.

The Legacy Continues in Curated Flavours

The ‘Delightful Moon Assorted Mooncake’ also returns with a graceful and elegant packaging design. In this gift box, you can find both three classic and lava mooncake variants to provide everyone with a sweet treat and share the joy with your loved ones this Mid-Autumn Festival.
