Halal Mooncakes: 7-Eleven Introduces Three Yummy Flavours You'll Confirm Wanna Try
The Mid-Autumn Festival is almost here, and with it comes something we all love and look forward to enjoying every year — mooncakes!
Whether you prefer the simple, classic flavours or the unique fancy ones, there's no denying that everyone gets excited about chowing down on mooncakes whenever this time of the year rolls around. Baked or snowskin, yolk or no yolk, sweet or savoury — there are just so many options to choose from!
However, for those looking for halal mooncakes, it can be a little more tricky to find, as options tend to be more limited.
That's why 7-Eleven decided to release its own limited-edition line of halal mooncakes, so that no one has to miss out the joy of sharing mooncakes with friends and family
The series includes three different all-time favourite flavours:
- Red Bean (RM8.90): The slightly thin crust hides a rich, thick red bean paste within, offering a sweet and smooth taste. The lingering flavour of red bean paste fills your mouth after each bite, delivering an exquisite experience.
- Lotus (RM9.90): A classic mooncake flavour that's a Mid-Autumn festival staple, the creamy and silky lotus seed paste brings a luxurious rich texture, complemented by a caramelised aftertaste that lingers on the palate.
- Golden Starlight with Yolk (RM12.90): Bite through the slightly thin pastry, and you'll find a rich filling of pandan paste. The addition of salted egg yolk not only adds flavour, but also symbolism, evoking the image of the full moon.
Overall, the mooncakes' unique taste presents a delightful fusion of sweet and savoury notes, characterised by a soft texture that everyone will love.
And of course, the thing that makes these mooncakes extra special is the cute packaging they come in, which you'll definitely want to simpan, hehe ;)
Packaged in trendy and whimsical designs, these mooncakes are available individually. The packaging concept artfully combines typical Chinese oriental elements with modern touches. They'll even make for lovely gifts to bring along when dropping by to visit friends and family.
Each mooncake weighs 75g, with the conveniently small portion making them great for eating on your own or for sharing with loved ones. No more feeling jelak from too much mooncake, yay!
Besides that, as part of their 'Bring The Bunnies Home' campaign, 7-Eleven has also launched a special AR filter game, in which you have to help adorable bunnies find their way home, awwww!
The idea of the game is to promote reunion and togetherness, a thoughtful and heartwarming message that's apt for the Mid-Autumn festival. To play the game, all you have to do is scan the QR code on the mooncake boxes.
As an added bonus, you'll stand the chance of winning up to 1,000 My7E points (equivalent to RM10) by playing the game.
Here's how to win:
Step 1: Complete the full race journey and ensure all the bunnies are home
Step 2: Take a screenshot of your final score and post it as an Instagram Story. The final score shown on the mission board is the total My7E points you'll get!
Step 3: Send a direct message to 7-Eleven Malaysia via Instagram and share your details (name, contact number, and My7E number). If you're one of the winners, the points will be credited into your My7E account.
The contest ends on 30 September. Results will be announced via 7-Eleven's Instagram Story, and winners will be contacted by 1 October.
