Holiday Inn Singapore Atrium’s New Snowskin Mooncakes Has Flavours Like Singapore Sling & Peranakan Durian

Holiday Inn Singapore Atrium mooncakes 2019

With the Mid-Autumn Festival right around the corner, Holiday Inn Singapore Atrium is upping the ante this year with a selection of unique flavour combos you’d never even think to associate with mooncakes – we’re talking Singapore Sling snowskins as well as infusions of rosemary and honey, crafted in vibrant pastel shades that are almost too good to eat!

Holiday Inn Singapore Atrium snowskin mooncake flavours

The new kids on the block for 2019 are the Singapore Sling Praline and Rosemary Honey Praline Mini Snowskins ($66 for a box of 6 pieces each), both embedded with a rich and tasty white lotus seed paste.

White Lotus Seed Paste with Singapore Sling Praline

While alcohol-infused mooncakes aren’t uncommon, the unlikely incorporation of our national cocktail gives each bite of these pink-and-pretty snowskins a sweet and familiar zing. 

White Lotus Seed Paste with Rosemary Honey Praline

The honeyed filling is blended harmoniously with notes of fresh rosemary. Besides lending it an added depth most wouldn’t expect, the fragrant herb also cuts through the richness to ensure the entire mooncake isn’t cloyingly sweet overall. 

Past mini snowskin favourites of 4 different varieties will also be making a comeback this year, each priced at $66 for a box of 6 pieces:

Peranakan Durian

Intoxicatingly aromatic durian is whipped to a fluffy texture and crammed within this delicate mini snowskin. Fans of the King Of Fruits will have to exercise great restraint not to gobble these potent goodies up whole!

Green Tea Paste with Baileys Irish Cream Praline

Earthy green tea flavours are spiked with shots of Baileys Irish Cream, leading to a smooth and milky concoction that tastes like a grown-up version of matcha milk tea. 

Pandan Paste with Champagne Praline

The quintessential taste profile of pandan is present in many of our local dishes, from hawker classics to traditional pastries. Indulge in the floral flavours further accentuated by crisp hints of champagne.

Passion Fruit Paste with Plum

A delicate fruity treat with equal parts tangy passion fruit and treacly plums, this pint-sized snowskin delight even has morsels of dried plum for you to unearth like hidden treasure.

Holiday Inn Singapore Atrium traditional baked mooncakes

If you’re a stickler for tradition, fret not. Holiday Inn Singapore Atrium’s range of baked mooncakes will satisfy that annual craving for perfectly golden brown crusted treats yielding chewy lotus paste fillings. 

There are Assorted Traditional Mooncakes and Assorted Nuts varieties to choose from ($74 for a box of 4 pieces each). The latter is jam-packed with almonds, walnuts and macadamias, along with a mixture of pumpkin seeds and sesame seeds which provide an unbeatable texture and mouthfeel. 

Traditional mooncakes are an ideal gift for our parents and more senior relatives, which is why low-sugar options are a godsend. Put a smile on your loved ones’ faces with 4-piece Low Sugar White Lotus Seed Paste options ($66 for regular, $70 for Single Yolk, $74 for Double Yolk).

Tip: For a gloriously balanced experience, pair these mooncakes with some curated tea selections available from Xin Cuisine Chinese Restaurant at Holiday Inn Singapore Atrium. For $18 a tin, you can take home exquisite Morning Blossom Pearl, Dew Drops, Bamboo Green, Rose Tea or White Peony brews.
