Review: Casahana (喜月堂) Mooncakes 2013

>> Monday, September 16, 2013

Celebrate this mid-autumn festival with Casahana's extensive variety of mooncakes. From the traditional pure lotus seed paste to the modern pomegranate, yam, & more, people from all walks of life will be able to find something that will suit their preference!

Pretty packaging, suitable as gifts to business partners, family & friends :)

Be spoiled for choice with the 16 different flavours of mooncakes, with prices ranging from RM14.90/mooncake - RM17.90/mooncake.

Among the many existing favourites this year are 3 new flavours i.e. Scarlet Snow, Empress Magic and Violet Harmony, which are rather unique mooncakes in my opinion! Who would have thought of using pomegranates, rose petal, apples, ginseng & sweet potato for mooncakes? It does feel rather contemporary & perhaps too bizarre, but it's like a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to try out such flavours while they're around :P

I've eaten Casahana's mooncakes before & I found it to be a pretty tasty mooncake brand compared to the many in the market. I was given 4 more-classic mooncakes to try, so here's my review:

Packaging: Contemporary with a traditional touch - very presentable

Overall mooncake: Thin layer of mooncake skin covering a generous portion of smooth & sweet filling a.k.a. "pei pok ham leng' (Cantonese)! It's not too oily (VERY important factor for me), not too sweet, & not dry - perfect!

Price: Standard - it's not more expensive than its competitors, but the quality of the mooncake is indeed commendable.

Pure Lotus 1 Yolk (RM15.90/mooncake)
A classic favourite that most people will go for - the pure lotus with 1 yolk. Somehow having a pure lotus mooncake with 1 yolk is a must in a box of 4 :D Salted egg yolk with sweet lotus paste is just delicious! 

Jade Custard (RM16.90/mooncake)
I'm a fan of pandan-flavoured lotus paste & this particular flavour came with a 'custard' center that resembled the salted egg yolk. It's a good choice for those who don't like the egg yolk or prefer to have something with lesser cholesterol.

Check out how thin the skin is!

Macha Red Bean (RM16.90/mooncake)
The green tea filling is actually quite nice, but as I'm not as fan of red bean paste, I find the red bean paste center not very appealing to my tastebuds. The red bean paste was also slightly 'grainy'/coarse as I think it lacks oil.

Pumpkin Taro (RM16.90/mooncake)
I felt that this was one of the 'weirdest' combination of mooncake that I've eaten. I can't really taste the pumpkin nor the taro when I eat it together. It's my least favourite among the 4 flavours in the box.

We've 3 more days to mid-autumn festival this Thursday, so do bring home some Casahana mooncakes to enjoy with your family & friends this Thursday night beneath the bright moonlight :) (that's usually what my family does with my relatives each year...hehehe)

Casahana Mooncakes are available at all major supermarkets in KL, JB, Penang & Singapore. Enjoy!

Happy Mid-Autumn Festival!
