Mid Autumn Festival is coming, and you would have noticed the onslaught of mooncakes being sold if you frequent shopping malls in Malaysia. Yes, this is how Mid Autumn Festival is celebrated in Malaysia, by eating mooncakes, and in fact we call it Mooncake festival here! BMS Organics my favourite organic and vegetarian shop recently launched the all new Organic Mooncake that does not use the usual sugar. Natural isomalt is used to substitute normal sugar in BMS Organics mooncakes. So diet watchers rejoice! You know how the usual mooncake is usually too sweet and high in sugar and is not suitable for people with diabetes and high blood pressure at all, but how can anyone miss out on enjoying mooncakes together with the family! Besides, all ingredients are 100% organic. The plain flour used is free from bleaching and additives, produced through traditional style stone milling process which helps immensely in reducing the loss of cereals, enzymes and nutrients.
Wow, at first look I can see they have some interesting colourful mooncakes besides the usual ones. Let me tell you what is which and see which one is your favourite.
There are six choices of organic sugar free mooncakes including three unique flavours: Pink Lady 10 Grain Beetroot, Bamboo Charcoal Black Sesame and Green Balance Macha Red Bean; and three classic flavours: Pure Lotus, Pure Lotus with Yolk and Mixed Nuts Delight.
- Pink Lady 10 Grain Beetroot
10 Grain Beetroot is great for replenishing blood for women. The combination of oat milk and lotus seed paste fillings, coupled with the natural colouring of outer layer that sourced from beetroot juice.
Seriously, the mooncake is not sweet at all, that means I am able to eat the whole mooncake without the feeling like my throat is going to close up. I love the Pink Lady mooncake, it will surely be a hit with the ladies.
- Bamboo Charcoal Black Sesame
Aroma-rich black sesame is packed with calcium, vitamins and trace minerals. I love the pure black outer layer that is craftily made from bamboo charcoal. Taste wise, I can really taste the black sesame well.
- Green Balance Macha Red Bean
I am mad about matcha and green tea, so this healthy green tea and wheat grass mooncake is my absolute favourite. The perfect combination of green and red colours, whereby the red beans offers gentle sweetness and smoothness to the palate, while the natural green tea powder made up the exterior. This nutritious blend is widely known to aid in body detoxification. You know green tea and red bean together never goes wrong.
- Pure Lotus
Some people I believe always look forward to the tradtional taste of the Pure Lotus mooncake. In fact, I do too. This mooncake uses only the best quality ingredients such as high-quality lotus seeds that bring you the best blend of healthy and great taste. Furthermore, a cute mould is used for this!
- Pure Lotus with Yolk
Similar to the Pure Lotus, this is the salted aromatic egg yolk version fused splendidly with a classic sweet pure lotus seed paste, now who doesn’t like salted egg yolk right? I love the blend of sweet and salty taste for sure.
- Mixed Nuts Delight
When I was younger, I used to dislike the mixed nuts mooncake but now I realised how healthy this is! Rich in fiber and healthy fatty acids, this exquisite flavour will surely linger in your mouth and is a must pick mooncake for those who desire a traditional taste and a filling one too.
By the way, the packaging is really unique! After taking out the mooncakes, the outer packaging is actually a usable lantern, complete with a candle inside. I love the artwork on the lantern also, very Malaysian culture and cute. This is great as a gift box. This comes with every 4-piece mooncake while with the purchase of any 2-piece mooncake, you get a can of organic green tea. Great idea in my opinion.
