I swear, they begin selling them earlier and earlier these days! The actual festival is at the end of September and they're already selling them now in the beginning of August! They come in decorative boxes of 2 or 4 moon cakes each. People normally buy them because they want the boxes! Ha! Ha!
Same here, I'm going to buy 2 moon cakes because I want the box to keep my overflowing bookmark collection! I'm buying one nutty moon cake (for my Dad, it's his fave) and one low-sugar white lotus paste (my fave).
Have they begun selling moon cakes in your part of the world? Btw, it's a Chinese tradition, I've forgotten the story, it's about a moon goddess or something. Maybe you can find out more if you google it! Happy Moon Cake festival!
