Durian fiends might think they're better off buying an actual durian, but hey, it's the festive season after all.

In the same spirit, we've round up seven brands of durian snowskin mooncakes for the upcoming Mid-Autumn Festival, which falls on Oct. 1 this year.

Fancy for 100% pure Mao Shan Wang durian puree wrapped in a mochi-alike chewy snow skin. The delicate soft and chewy blue-white marbled skin reflecting the blue-white porcelain wares from ancient times that were seen as extravagance holdings in the Tang Dynasty. Because of its mochi-like texture, my family loves it. Also, there is no added sugar, cream and preservatives added. . Read on foodgem.sg/food/mooncakes-2020 . Where to buy?

Butterfly Pea Musang King Mooncake and Black Charcoal Musang King Mooncake // Aroma Truffle You don’t know how happy my mum was when she received these durian mooncakes from @aromatruffle a few days ago. She was hurrying me to take a photo of then so she can start eating and yes, she finished 2 (one each) on the spot! Here’s a breakdown of the two mooncakes from @aromatruffle: 1) Butterfly Pea Musang King Mooncake The colour is of course derived from Butterfly Blue Pea flower and it’s core filling is a combi of Pahang’s Musang King Durian flesh mixed with bits of premium Black Winter Truffle! 2) Black Charcoal Musang King Mooncake Specially curated for durian-lovers, this signature Mooncake from @aromatruffle is filled with pure Musang King Durian! Head to @aromatruffle for more info! #Durian #Musang
