The Mid Autumn festival mooncake promotions are still underway, where eateries and restaurants everywhere are showcasing and selling their mooncakes. I had the chance to be given a box of Casahana Mooncakes to try out while I was back in Penang a couple of weeks back. This would be a short writeup on these mooncakes.

Now Casahana Mooncakes aren't new in the market, as I have seen it so many times in prominent shopping malls. It was my first time tasting it though, as I've always stuck with my favourite few brands over the past few years. This year, Casahana came out with a new set of mooncakes with some really exotic flavours.

Inside the really colourful purple mooncake box, there were four different new flavoured Casahana mooncakes inside. We had the new Fiery Phoenix mooncake, the Night Symphony mooncake, the Tropical Tango, and my usual favourite, the Lotus Paste with Egg Yolk Mooncake.

I actually gave away the other three exotic flavoured mooncakes to my parents in Penang, which they have yet to try. As for me, I'm always a fan of the traditional Lotus Paste Mooncake. One is never enough, Casahana's Lotus Paste with Egg Yolk Mooncake was exactly what the doctor ordered. It was pretty good, with the filling being sweet, but not overly sweet, with a delicious egg yolk hidden inside.

I do like my mooncakes having a softer slightly oily texture to it. Sometimes being too dry, or too oily do cause a problem, but it's safe to note that the Casahana mooncake did not fall into those category.
