We bought Goodwood Park’s Lychee with Lime Marshmallow (in green) and Mango with Pomelo (in orange) snowskin mooncakes at 4 for $50.  These mooncake were a total deviation from the traditional ones. The Mango Pomelo filling tasted very much like mango flavoured ice cream with bits and pieces of pomelo scattered within. These pomelo bits left a bitter aftertaste. The core of the Lychee and Lime Marshmallow snowskin mooncake was very creamy, tasting somewhat like the cream on lychee flavoured sponge cream cakes from neighbourhood bakeries. The marshmallow in the core was the least impressive. On the whole, these mooncakes were not overly sweet but we disliked the fact that the snowskin was a tad too thick. Overall, we didn’t really appreciate these innovative flavours but felt that they would resonate well with children and entice them in participating actively and appreciating this Mid-Autumn festival.
