8 Buzz-worthy Mooncakes For The Curious, The Trendsetters and The Adventurous

Rediscover the traditions of Mid-Autumn festival by gathering around these buzzy mooncake flavours. Citi Cardmembers enjoy up to 30% off these sweet treats!

5. Article Banner

As part of the millennial army who have allowed the significance of Asian traditions to take a backseat, Mid-autumn festival is something we only remember when we spot mooncakes making their rounds. What was once a big part of Chinese heritage has been watered down to vague ideas of folklore, lanterns and golden lotus paste mooncakes. Several hotels have taken it upon themselves to come up with exciting new mooncake inventions in a bid to remind us and keep us connected to the tradition of gathering with loved ones — think pop culture refs, bubble tea inspirations, alcoholic options and more.

Citi Cardmembers enjoy up to 30% off across 30 over merchants — all the more reason to be over the moon this season!
