Taiwanese street food vendor Shihlin Taiwan Street Snacks has launched its first-ever mooncake set.

Called the Golden Lotus Mooncake Set (S$55), this set contains four baked mooncakes that apparently takes on the soft texture and look of snow skin.

There are five flavours to choose from:

Sakura Pomegranate Mochi
