We managed to get some discounted mooncakes after the mid-autumn festival. There were still loads of them on sale in AEON Big with 70% off.
Below picture is the box for Yu Ai brand....the design for this year looks quite plain with greyish background...not so appealing due to its dull colour.
Bought 2 pieces of Shanghai mooncakes. It was still fresh and nice. The texture is soft & moist, not dry at all (like those mooncakes kept for too long). The expiry date is 21 Oct 2021...roughly a month to go when we bought it. The outer crust is not crumbly when cut. The quality seems on par with the more established brand.
Tastewise is slightly sweet but that's common for non-homebaked product.
At RM6.30 per piece we don't mind about that. We also bought the conventional lotus paste mooncakes (which i did not take picture coz they are just too common). All are priced similarly around RM6-7 per piece after discount.
Meanwhile, here's our grocery haul for the week...
we bought our groceries in bulk that lasts a whole week
i just noticed that we have 1 cabbage, 2 corns, 3 daikons, 4 cucumbers...😀😀😀
till then, stay safe!
