"In keeping with their usual high standards, Mandarin Orchard has certainly hit all the right notes with these beautiful mooncake creations that are unique in packaging as well as in taste. Without a doubt, these babies rank high amongst all the mooncakes I have tried this year." - Sparklette Review
"Among the 4 flavours of the mini snowskin, the Purple Sweet Potato & Amaretto Truffle and Almond with Black Sesame Paste caught my attention for these are favourites of Yuan. This creation is inspired by the much-loved Cantonese dessert, Yuan Yang, a combination of black sesame paste and almond paste. However, Yuan is neutral towards this for the sesame paste is quite rich and hence not as smooth as the classic dessert but we have to admit that the fragrance of the almond does make it outstanding among most snowskins." - SgDesserts Review
"For those with an insatiable sweet tooth, Mandarin Court’s delicate snow skin mooncakes promise to enrapture with their refreshing and complementary flavours. Inspired by the much-loved Cantonese dessert, Yuan Yang—a combination of black sesame and almond pastes—the new Mini Snow Skin Almond with Black Sesame Paste Mooncake ($48+ for a box of eight) features the subtle flavour of almonds and the sweetness of black sesame beneath a pristine white snow skin wrapper." - BestCar Review
