Mid-Autumn Festival is coming soon. That being said, there are many brands that are creating out of this world mooncakes. Starbucks has created mooncakes infused with coffee, and Changhosek made mooncakes with bubble tea. Of course, one of the highly-anticipated drops of special mooncakes is from IRVINS Salted Egg, and they didn’t let us down at all.
Introducing Lava Mooncakes
Aren’t we all eating mooncakes just for its salted egg? Salted egg melting is your mouth feels so satisfying. A local brand that is known for salted egg products, IRVINS Salted Egg, has elevated the experience by creating lava mooncakes. From the looks of it, IRVINS Salted Egg is really generous when it comes to the amount of lava in the mooncakes.
It comes in two flavours, Smooth & Lucious Yam, and Sweet & Fragrant Mung Bean. The flavours boast a good combination of sweet and savoury. Wrapped around with a modern charcoal skin, these mooncakes has an iconic stamp of its logo. To have the mooncakes oozing out lava, you will need to pop it in the microwave for ten seconds!
To further differentiate themselves from normal mooncakes, the packaging is very different as well. It is wrapped with IRVINS exclusively designed fabric via Japanese Furoshiki technique. There are two different designs, complementing the two different flavours available. Yam Lava Mooncake has a vibrant packaging, and Mung Bean Lava Mooncake carries the same colour as the brand.
