Mooncake Festival 2020 Goes Online this Mid-Autumn – Pros, Cons, and Mooncakes Galore!
Life hasn’t been the same since COVID-19 descended upon us. Something that hasn’t changed, however, is that mooncakes remain a key part of Chinese Mid-autumn Festival celebrations in Singapore. The big difference this Mooncake Festival 2020 will be the lack of pop-up kiosks and mooncake fairs around town. Which basically means fewer taste tests too.
But when food is at stake, true-blue Singaporeans never fail to adapt with great fervour. We simply take our shopping — for the yummiest treats and the best deals — online. Competition is a-plenty, which is great for consumers like us. Delivery options add convenience, especially if you’re buying gifts for friends and family.

Whether you plan to go with past-year favourites or get adventurous and try something new, online mooncake fairs are a good place to start. Advantages include one-stop shopping — check out various brands in one cart — and exclusive promotions on offer.

A quick glance sees unusual offerings such as Duria’s Jet Li Pandan Black Thorn Musang King Snowy Skin Grateful Mooncake, alongside expected hotel and restaurant brands.
