Mooncakes by EQ as delectable and stylish gifts

EQ Kuala Lumpur has been the early bird in showcasing its mooncakes in myriad flavours, as well as gifts in stylish boxes for the Mid-Autumn Festival which falls on September 29.

We had an early tasting of these delectable mooncakes, going from the traditional baked ones to the snow skin mooncakes. I’ve always enjoyed traditional baked mooncakes like the Cantonese Mixed Nuts and Red Bean, but I’m also partial to EQ Signature Pearl of Harmony and Low Sugar White Lotus Single Yolk.

Golden Charcoal Musang King Durian is my favourite among the snow skin varieties. I love the Sun Dried Scallop Mixed Nuts mooncake too.

Other snow skin varieties include Emerald Yuzu Pandan, Mint Chocolate, Hawaiian Nut, Butterfly Pea Flower, Vitagen White Lotus and Red Bean Custard

EQ’s Mini Mooncakes bring back childhood memories of a Chinese biscuit shop in Ipoh which used to sell mini mooncakes all year round, filled with green bean paste. EQ’s traditional mini mooncakes with Pure Lotus and Green Tea filling come in sets of eight in a box that’s so nifty for giving away as a token of appreciation or as a door gift.

The Celestial Treasure Premium Collection brings gift-giving to the highest level, in an exclusive gift set. In it is a combination of traditional baked mooncakes and hand-crafted show skin ones, paired with a bottle of luxury spirits such as Hennessy VSOP or Bottega Gold Prosecco.

Individual mooncakes can be purchased exclusively at the Mid-autumn Festival pop-up booths located at the hotel lobby. The Celestial Treasures range will also be available at all Kampachi and Ippudo restaurants and Thyme Out at the AICB Building and the pop-up store at Pavilion KL Centre Court from September onwards. Prices range from RM28 to RM38 for baked mooncakes, and RM28 to RM48 for the snow skin variants.

There will be 15 percent discount till 31 August 2023. Bulk purchase orders of 20 or more boxes will receive 10 percent off. There is a 15 percent discount for the purchase of 50 boxes and above, and 20 percent for the purchase of 100 boxes and above.

Beautifully designed gift boxes include the Autumn Box, a bespoke valise-style bag with a functional carry handle, complete with a set of metal cutlery to enjoy the mooncakes with.

The Longevity Box is a traditional, classic box crafted from PU leather, with a design inspired by the Legend of the Jade Rabbit from Chinese folklore.
