Our doorbell sounded and there's a guy outside with a nice little paper bag delivering a box of mooncakes to us! It's delivery from one of our top 5 places for macarons in Singapore.
A surprise from Jewels Artisan Chocolate.
It's not macarons this time, but Snow-Skin mooncakes!
A semi 3D style light green box was inside the package and in it there's 3 icy jewels!
The kind folks from Jewels Artisan Chocolate and Siriusart sent me 3 types of mooncakes to sample.
Hand made by the artisans from Jewels, these cold delights comes in limited quantity.
These mini snow skin mooncakes comes in boxes of 8 mooncakes, and prices are between $52.80 to $56.80. They have the traditional baked ones as well.
Now for the taste test:
Mini Snow-Skin Mooncake with Salted Caramel Truffle - $52.80 for a box of 8.
A ball of chocolate crust with salted caramel truffle inside, tasting slightly salty and sweet at the same time. The filling is smooth and velvety on the tongue.
Mini Snow-Skin Mooncake with Champagne Ganache Truffle - $53.80 for a box of 8.
A white chocolate ball with champagne ganache inside. It's a low sugar recipe, so it does not taste so sweet. When you open the package, a nice fragrance banana and champagne smell tempts you to want to pop it in your mouth!
Mini Snow-Skin Mooncake with Korean Black Garlic - $56.80 for a box of 8.
This sure is unique! Jewels have been making korean black garlic macarons, and now they have added it into their mooncakes as well. Black garlic has 10 times more anti-oxidants than normal garlic.
Garlic lovers and garlic PRE-lovers might want to taste it. It smells of garlic, but not a whiff of the pungent smell like fresh garlic. In fact, you don't really smell it from your nose, you can taste it on your tongue when you pop the mooncakes in. The black garlic has a sweetish and yet a slight vinegarish taste, a bit like pickled radish in korean banchans.
You can get these delicacies from now till 11 September 2011.
