mooncake

During Mid-Autumn Festival (中秋節) Chinese people across the globe enjoy a delicious tradition — mooncakes to share with family and friends while celebrating the moon. Mooncakes are traditionally filled with either red bean or lotus paste along with an egg yolk. There are many variations such as matcha, custard, or chocolate to accommodate more modern tastes. However, in recent years we have been seeing brands get truly creative with their cakes, varying from ridiculously extravagant to absurdly weird.

Here are some mooncakes that you might wish or not wish to have:

It’s common knowledge that mooncakes are pretty caloric. They are by no means an everyday food. Companies like Green Common have introduced a new breed of health-conscious mooncakes that we can feel less guilty about. Their new flavors include Figs with Pistachio & Oat and Mixed Nuts with Blueberry & Purple Sweet Potato.
