Hong Kong’s best-selling mooncake and pastry brand, Hong Kong MX, is back with its well-loved mooncake flavors and new, exciting ones in time for this year’s Mid-Autumn Festival on September 21.
Its official Philippine distributor, Double Down Import & Export, Inc., continues to bring the Filipino-Chinese community, and even everyone who made this mooncake royalty a staple in their celebrations, closer together. All mooncakes are 100 percent made and imported from Hong Kong.
Dialing up the mid-autumn touch with new look
A Hong Kong MX Mooncake Original, Lava Custard Mooncake utilizes the unique double-baked technique, which folds pre-baked crushed golden egg yolk-laced creamy custard paste into layers of milky crust for a perfect fusion of aromas and textures. The flavor now comes in new and refreshing packaging.
Last year, with its highly anticipated return for the festivities this year, the brand added the Lava Quartet Mooncake, Lava Duet Mooncake, and Delightful Moon Assorted Mooncakes to the family alongside the Lava Custard Mooncake set.
The Lava Quartet Mooncake set offers two pieces each of of the classic Lava Custard Mooncake, fragrant Lava Chocolate Mooncake, aromatic Lava Caramel Macchiato Mooncake, and Lava Cheese Mooncake.
There are various ways to enjoy Lava Mooncakes. One recommendation is to cut the mooncake open at room temperature to enjoy the aromatic lava interior as it is. Alternatively, heat the mooncake in a microwave oven (1000w) for five to 10 seconds, then cut it open to reveal the half-molten golden custard filling flowing gently from the core. For an even richer experience, heat them in a microwave oven for five to 8 seconds, and the sweetness and crispiness of the mooncake will increase tenfold.
A classic festive treat
The Mid-Autumn Festival is never complete without its classic, traditional yet festive Lotus Seed Paste mooncake series. Hong Kong MX produces mooncakes locally in Hong Kong following their commitment and passion in delivering quality seasonal treats.
This dedication also brought recognition to White Lotus Seed Paste Mooncake with tow Egg Yolks and Lotus Seed Paste Mooncake with two Egg Yolks as flagship products that are known and loved worldwide. The white lotus seed paste is consistently delicate and velvety; the lotus seed paste creamy and smooth. Combining each with pristine salted egg yolks, it promises to be the perfect celebratory treat. The newly designed gift box is inspired by Chang’e, the beautiful and elegant Moon Goddess from traditional Chinese mythology
