Full “Moon” Mooncakes

After I published my homemade mooncake post, my dear friend Lee Chin Hock, who is now living in Hong Kong, left a comment on my Facebook post. He sent me links to a story and pictures of a collection of “innovative” mooncakes that are all the rage among the young and hip in Hong Kong.

He wrote, “As you know ‘the 15th of August’ (in Cantonese) is often used as an euphemism for the butt, so this year G.O.D. teamed up with a very famous mooncakes maker to create these cheeky butt-shaped mooncakes for the Mid-Autumn Festival. These mooncakes come in 4 shapes and are called ‘Full Monty,’ ‘T-Back,’ ‘Mind the Gap’ and ‘Spread My Cheeks.’ They are really selling like hot cakes here!”

Someone at GOD, a chic Hong Kong lifestyle merchant, definitely has a great sense of humor. After I stopped laughing hysterically I wondered if anyone in the Chinese communist government is laughing with me.

From reading the promotional information I learned that the filling is lotus seed paste with egg yolk. These mooncakes may be very exciting on the outside, but I think my mooncakes are more exciting on the inside. Does this make me a mooncake snob?
