According to Chinese folklore, the Jade Rabbit is a character that lives on the moon. Legend has it that the trusty companion of the moon goddess is a selfless, noble, and compassionate creature to whom offerings are made during the Mid-Autumn Festival.
Even in our modern world, people across the world still believe that if a person looks up at the full moon and squint slightly at the markings, they can still see the Jade Rabbit with his pestle and mortar, eternally shouldering the responsibility to make the elixir of life for immortals.
Drawing inspiration from these stories, Hilton Petaling Jaya’s mooncake series, aptly named Jade Rabbit Series, redefines what elixir of life means and incorporates ingredients which provides longevity to health and life in its mooncake series.
Food that contains antioxidants and promotes overall wellbeing such as pomegranate, blueberries, and raisins take centerstage in both the traditional and snow skin goodies, making the beloved mid-autumn treat a winning combination of deliciously indulgent and graciously healthy.
