We like the mooncakes from Old Seng Choong, innovative and balanced flavours with good quality. Their mooncakes come in mini sizes, which make them very dangerous. I could eat a piece by myself without feeling jerlat.

Price: starts from $62.89 for a box of 8 mini
Promo: 15% off select Old Seng Choong Heritage Cookies with any mooncake purchased.
Where to order: Their physical stores at MBS and The Central (Clarke Quay). Or online. Until 21/09.
Halal mooncakes at JB prices!!! Season Confectionary and Bakery hails from JB. Although the mooncakes are 1/3 the price of Singapore’s mooncakes, they are rather tasty and definitely won’t be inferior to Singapore’s.
What to order: They do traditional flavours here, which is great. Why change when you have a great product? It’s white lotus paste with options of single, double, no yolk.
Price: starts from $18.80!!!!
Promo: At this price, you still want to be shameless and ask for promo??!
Where to order: Their online shop.
