This year, celebrate the joys of perfect pairings as Goodwood Park Hotel launches new snowskin flavours that are each a perfect blend of two complementary ingredients. One of the flavours is the hotel's first-ever chocolate mooncake version.

The limited quantity Dark Chocolate Crunchy Hazelnut Snowskin Mooncake is a multi-textural delight, with a crunchy hazelnut chocolate centre enveloped by a rich mousse made with two types of dark chocolate. The snowskin itself is made with crushed vanilla beans and caramel.
Also available in limited quantities is the Black Thorn Durian Snowskin Mooncake (冰皮黑刺榴梿), which comes with a gold-dusted black charcoal snowskin. The black thorn durian is considered to be one of the most premium durian varietals and only available in limited quantities. Boasting creamy amber-hued flesh, it possesses an intense flavour that begins on a sweet note and ends on a bitter one. The Mao Shan Wang Durian Snowskin Mooncake (冰皮猫山王榴梿) also features a premium durian.

The Snowskin Combo (冰皮组合) has a fruit-based theme, featuring a piece each of the Yuzu Lychee, Mango with Pomelo (冰皮杨枝甘露), Cempedak (冰皮金蜜) and Mao Shan Wang Durian snowskin mooncakes. Both the mango and cempadak flavours are signatures for the hotel.
Several varieties of baked mooncakes are also available – Lotus Seed Paste with Melon Seeds (瓜仁莲蓉烘皮月饼); Lotus Seed Paste with Double Yolk (双黄莲蓉烘皮月饼); Lotus Seed Paste with Four Yolks (四黄莲蓉烘皮月饼); and White Lotus Seed Paste with Single or Double Yolk (单黄白莲蓉烘皮月饼/双黄白莲蓉烘皮月饼) among them.
