Even mooncakes have joined the Dark Side, it seems. This Mid Autumn Festival, opt for these uber-cool Star Wars mooncakes by Mei Xin, a leading Hong Kong brand that churns out reportedly the best-selling mooncakes in Hong Kong for 17 consecutive years since 1998.
The exclusive Stars Wars mooncake set is a collaboration between Disney and the established bakery. It comes in two variations – a Darth Vader set and a white Stormtrooper set.
The Darth Vader set, which of course comes in black, comprises four 45g lave chocolate-flavoured mooncakes baked using premium French Cacao Barry chocolate. The Stormtrooper mooncakes are egg custard-flavoured mooncakes made with premium butter and light cream from France. Each box of mooncakes even come with a specially designed bag.
And fret not – you don’t have to fly to Hong Kong to get these exclusive mooncakes. Currently, Mei Xin has a deal on Groupon Singapore where you can get the Star Wars mooncakes. You can get one set (eight pieces per set) for S$58 instead of the usual price S$104, or three sets (eight pieces per set) for S$165 instead of S$312. The deal started on 21 July 2016.
The last time we checked, the sets are going fast. So, be quick in grabbing one for yourself. May the Force be with you.
