There are three limited edition Shang Palace gift boxes on offer for sharing or gifting: the Mini Snow Skin Eight Treasures collection, the Mini Eight Treasures collection, and the classic Four Treasures collection, all wrapped in handcrafted blush, celadon, and crimson-hued silk boxes that resemble imperial jewellery boxes adorned with pearl buttons.
The Shang Palace Mini Snow Skin Eight Treasures Gift Set (S$88) features two new flavours: Yuzu Bird’s Nest and Chocolate Salted Toffee, with four pieces of each flavour.
The luxurious Yuzu Bird’s Nest mooncake has a tangy sweet and sour yuzu filling with premium bird’s nest in its core, wrapped in delicate snow skin.
Area Executive Pastry Chef Herve Potus specially created the Chocolate Salted Toffee snow skin mooncake with an exclusive French chocolate blend made of 40% cocoa milk chocolate and 66% cocoa dark chocolate at the core, mixed with sea salt toffee, and encased in a layer of crisp milk chocolate.
The Shang Palace Mini Eight Treasures Gift Set (S$88) includes eight mini baked mooncakes– Low Sugar White Lotus Seed Paste with Quarter Yolk and Red Bean with Almond – with four pieces of each flavour.
The classic favourite flavour, Low Sugar White Lotus Seed Paste with Quarter Yolk, has been re-introduced to the Mini Eight Treasures this year in a mini version with a quarter yolk.
Meanwhile, the Red Bean with Almond offers an added crunchiness to the classic baked mooncake with the addition of baked almonds.
