Affordable mooncakes for Mid-Autumn Festival 2021
Mooncakes can be quite pricey, we know. So, in an effort to help you save some money this Mid-Autumn Festival 2021, we have 7 affordable mooncake options under $70 to treat the fam without burning a hole in your wallet.
1. Ding Mooncake
Get 40% off premium mooncakes at Ding Bakery this Mid-Autumn Festival 2021, when you order before the end of August. All the mooncakes by Ding Bakery are handmade, with real, premium ingredients, no preservatives, and are low in sugar to boot.
Traditional baked mooncake fans, try the bestselling Signature White Lotus Double Yolk Mooncake (U.P $71.40), with smooth, not-too-sweet white lotus paste, countered by the savoury salted egg yolk. Each box contains four mooncakes.
If you’re willing to splurge a little, get their Durian MSW Snowskin (U.P. $139 for eight pieces), with real mao shan wang puree crafted from durians from the high mountains of Pahang, and QQ, mochi-like snowskin. If you’re not a big durian lover, get mooncakes from their Assorted Snowskin selection instead. Flavours include Pure Cacao Dark Chocolate, Culinary Grade Matcha, Earliglow Strawberry, and Passionfruit Mango. Prices are usually $139 for a box of eight, but with the 40% off, each box is only $83.40.

Teochew mooncake lovers should lend their support to Thye Moh Chan this Mid-Autumn Festival. The homegrown brand has over 70 years of experience making Teochew-style mooncakes, and this season, they have three new flavours in the mix.
