The Butterfly Pea Musang King Mooncake comes in a beautiful blue hue which is extracted from the natural colour of the Butterfly Blue Pea flower. It also has a hint of aroma from the flower. The core filling is a divine combination of pure Musang King durian flesh mixed with bits of premium Black Winter Truffle harvested from Italy.
