A popular bakehouse in Singapore, Mdm Ling Bakery stepped up their game this year by collaborating with Hasbro to create a one-of-a-kind mooncake series

In preparation for the 2022 Mid-Autumn Festival that's approaching this September, the bakery elevated their ambitions by creating a limited edition Monopoly Mooncake Game Box.

Riddled with classic Monopoly designs and features, the series comprises of 18 different flavours, ranging from sweet to savoury

Making for the perfect gift to impress your loved ones, or even your scorned enemies, each mooncake has its own special twist, differentiating one flavour to the next with its unique molten lava core.

While all the flavours are absolutely delicious, choices among the assembly of 18 include vegetarian-friendly and halal-certified mooncakes too.

Each set contains four mooncakes. As each core has a different flavour, the culmination of all the tetrads are meant to symbolise the full moon itself.

As for the board game itself, minor changes were made to the properties on the board to align the game with the Mid Autumn Festival theme

As stated on the Mdm Ling Bakery website, "Now it's a walk to remember and roll around the charming streets home to some of the most popular cookies and their premium quality ingredients, many of which are Mdm Ling Bakery's signatures!"

What used to be known as 'Old Kent Road', now reads as the Himalayan Salt Square, priced at a measly 60 Monopoly Dollars. Some of the other amusingly named properties include Purple Sweet Potato Place, Jalan Kuih Bangkit, Seaweed Street, Hazelnut Lane, Green Pea Grove, Pineapple Promenade, and Butter Boulevard.

Certain elements have remained the same however, including the 'Go To Jail' space, collecting 200 Monopoly Dollars when passing 'Go', the design on the printed Monopoly Dollars, and the 'Free Parking' space.

Other accessories on the other hand have minor tweaks, including the pineapple design on the 'Chance' cards, names on the property cards, and the centre artwork display on the board, which shows Mr Monopoly leaving Mdm Ling Bakery.
