Review: My 1st time tasting (삼립) Samlip Full Moon Cake With Strawberry Cream!

Last Updated on 2022/01/20

I was reluctant to buy this (삼립) Samlip full moon cake with strawberry cream. It was big and it looked like a very dry pound cake.

The bunny on the cover honestly reminded me of つきのうさぎ (Moon Bunny/Rabbit) or in Korean, 달토끼. Many Asian countries including South Korea have an old belief that a bunny lives on the moon where it makes rice cakes by pounding rice with a pestle. It’s not much of a coincidence that this cake is called Boreumdal (보름달: means full moon) and has a bunny with a pestle on the cover.

Check out the SPC Samlip company website. You’ll find a list of their brands and more about the Boreumdal (보름달) cake brand.




Taste

The cake was similar to any other plain buttery pound or sponge cake but with a nutty hint and light sweetness. This cream cake reminded me of Twinkies but drier. The outer part of the cake felt sticky. I’m not sure what it is but it’s sweet. I also thought that the tiny bumps on top of the cake were sesame seeds but it’s not; might be some kind of nut. The filling tasted a lot like a strong strawberry milk flavor. The filling inside was smooth and creamy. Since I left it in the fridge before eating it, the filling was similar to soft served ice cream.

Size

The cake is 3 oz (85g) and it was about 3.5 inches (8.89cm) wide in diameter. I would say it was about 2 inches (5.08cm) thick.

Would I buy Samlip Full Moon Cake Again?

Answer: Yes.

This is a treat I would enjoy buying again. I didn’t realize it at first but it’s on the packaging; it says to keep frozen. As I said above, I put it in the fridge so the filling was nice and cool. It seems that it’s supposed to be eaten that way. For me, there wasn’t enough filling, especially around the edges, but my biggest issue was that the cake was dry even with the filling. I would recommend having milk or coffee with it.
