Moon Cakes

The moon festival is this weekend, and you know what that means!

Mooncakes! Yay!

I usually buy them based more on the prettiness of the tin they come in, rather than the actual taste or type.
Loving this lotus tin!
Inside are delicious lotus paste treats!

And what's so moony about the mooncake?

There's a moon inside!

Actually, I am not a fan of the salted egg yolk inside. I am lame and prefer pure-sweet-paste - be it lotus, red bean or mung bean.  With tea of course. You'd probably choke to death on the density of this stuff without a good cup of hot tea!

Hope you all have a wonderful moon festival weekend!

  1. I like the ones w/o egg yolk inside. Hahah. I'm usually only able to eat like 1/4 of one!

    Did you know they made Angry Birds moon cake?

  2. Those look yummy, though I'd probably not be a fan of the salted yolk either. Have a great weekend!

  3. I've never heard of those, but a salted egg yolk in the middle sounds strange, haha. Love the packaging!

  4. I think I saw you at the Chocolate Festival this weekend, but I was too shy to say hi ^^;;;

    Hope you enjoyed your moon cakes!
