2012's newbies include an ultra-creamy dark chocolate concoction filled with star anise and red bean ganache, tasting like the most luxurious candy bar ever.

Also introduced this year: white chocolate with orange ganache and jam. But mooncakes aren't immune to inflation: MO's chocolate ones cost RM20+, a RM2 hike from 2011's set.

Fresh, natural-tasting flavors form the foundation for 2012's snowskin selection: choose either pandan or blueberry with grated coconut, both evoking a Malay kuih feel (perfect for Ramadan!). RM14+ each (also up by RM2), small enough to finish within four mouthfuls.

Mooncakes can be eaten at MO's lobby lounge with unique cocktails like the Malay Mojito (tinged with gula melaka palm sugar) and the Guava Cosmopolitan.

Early birds enjoy a 10 percent discount off the regular mooncake price.
