Annually, both gNOMes always look forward to the Mid Autumn Festival where they would stuff themselves with lots and lots of mooncake. His pick would be usually anything with egg yolk, her’s would be the good old baked lotus seed paste mooncake.
This year, both gNOMes had the privilege to try out D’King’s Snow Skin Musang King Durian Mooncake. Both gNOMes have scouted high and low for the best Musang King Durian Mooncake thus far, but have proven unsuccessful. With the search still on, we decided to give this mooncake a try.
Sourced from the best Musang King durian from the orchards in Pahang, the flesh of these gems are removed immediately to make way as mooncake filling.
Each mooncake is handmade and made with tender loving care, and is individually packed to guarantee freshness. 4 mooncakes are then packed in a mini Styrofoam box, and an ice pack is sandwiched in between to enable the mooncakes to be transported anywhere up to 12 hours.
Both gNOMes were pretty impressed with the packaging as we did not detect any ‘durian‘ odor reeking out from the box. Now that’s really ideal for traveling!
Each mooncake is about the size of a person’s palm (i.e. bite size). D’King guarantees that only the highest grade Musang King durian flesh is used. The mooncakes are also free from preservatives and artificial flavouring.
Let’s dig in! 😀
Set of Eight 60g Mooncakes [RM 128.00/set]
A bite into the cake and one immediately notices something. The cake just melts inside your mouth! The snow skin is chewy and encases the (most likely) 100% Musang King durian flesh that forms into a ‘slice of heaven’. The gNOMes were awed. The only regret is that we don’t have more of it to snack on.
Currently there’s a promotional price ongoing for RM 98.00 per set (8 pieces of 60g mooncakes). Delivery is free for any purchase of 2 sets and above. Delivery price for 1 set and below is RM 15.00. To order, please whatsapp your orders to +6012-664 8797 with the following format <Name> <Address> <Number of Sets> <Delivery Date> 🙂
Verdict : The search is all but over, as this is as legit as it gets. Creamy and melting in the mouth. If only they made them bigger. Nevertheless the gNOMes have no complaints. Will get more soon!
