8 Best Mooncakes to Buy for Mid-Autumn Festival 2022

Last updated Aug 18, 2022

Mid-autumn festival in 2022 is upon us once again. What better way to celebrate the festival, which falls on 10 September 2022, than to feast on some mooncakes? From the traditional baked mooncakes to snowskin mooncakes, here are some of our favourite mooncakes to ring in the occasion. 

Hotels and bakeries in Singapore never fail to impress whenever the Mid-Autumn Festival rolls around each year. 

If you are looking for traditional Teochew mooncakes filled with orh nee (yam paste) goodness, snowskin mooncakes or unique flavours such as coffee caramel and kueh lapis mooncakes, you need to bookmark this list, which also includes details such as exquisite box designs, purchase venues (online and offline), as well as credit card promotions and deals.

How to save more money on mooncakes in Singapore this Mid-Autumn Festival 2022 

Of course, good mooncakes do not come cheap. A set of four traditional mooncakes can easily cost you over S$100+ for four pieces. Also, inflation might make prices even higher this year. 

If you are planning to order mooncakes (either online or at physical outlets) for your loved ones this Mid-Autumn Festival, remember to use credit cards to chalk up cashback/miles/rewards

Usually, AMEX, Citibank, CIMB, DBS/POSB, HSBC, Maybank, OCBC, Standard Chartered, and UOB card holders are eligible for discounts on mooncake bundles which can save you around 15% to 30% off your total bill

To save even more money, keep a lookout for early bird deals. The best prices for mooncakes are often offered one month ahead of the Mid-Autumn Festival.
