Mid-Autumn Festival is approaching, have you bought any mooncake? Bored of traditional baked mooncake with traditional flavour? Want something different? This year, D’King, a premium durian mooncake brand, introduces its vegetarian snow skin musang king durian mooncake, which are handmade and without addition of preservatives and artificial flavouring. Instead, it is packed with the highest-grade Musang King durians sourced from Pahang.
It does not have luxury packaging. Nevertheless, it is the perfect gift for corporate clients and for the family this coming Mid-Autumn Festival.
D'King snow skin mooncakes are packed in styrofoam box containing ice gels for preservation up to 10 hours.
“Unlike most mooncakes, which utilise processed filling, D’King mooncake is prepared with the actual durian flesh. Once the durians arrive, we peel them and remove the flesh immediately to prepare the mooncake filling. If we wait too long, the durians would break open on its own, and the aroma and taste would be lost,” shares Simon Chin, founder of D’King. “Last year, our D24 mooncake was very well received, so this year, we decided to go for the most premium durian, which is the famous Musang King. The Musang King was selected for the creamy and sticky flesh, with its strong scent and flavour that melts in your mouth.”
“Another unique feature is its delicate snow skin that is light-textured yet uniquely bouncy. The snow skin also has to be thin enough to emphasize the filling but strong enough to hold it all in. The snow skin is made from a secret recipe which we have created after many rounds of trials. Our pastry chef has nearly a decade of experience behind him and he is extremely particular about perfecting the taste,” added Chin.
D’King has been available by telephone order in Malaysia since 2012 and caters to a list of loyal customers. The durian mooncake had really taken off in China and Hong Kong, and is a favourite amongst several celebrities there. During the official visit by President of China Xi Jinping to Putrajaya Residence in 2013, D’King was honoured to showcase products made from the King of Fruits, including the D’King durian mooncake. D’King vegetarian snow skin musang king durian mooncake is sold in sets of eight 60g mooncakes, at RM128 per set, although there is currently a promotional price of RM98 per set.
