Moon Cakes

Mooncakes are available from Chinese Bakeries and Chinese Markets.  Some Mooncakes are imported from Taiwan and China, and others are made fresh locally.  There are also a few sites that sell them on the Internet.  Bakeries listed below.

Cost of Mooncakes

Costs of mooncakes vary.  Usual price is around $5 each mooncake. The price will drop after the Moon Festival (October 3rd).  Mooncakes on the web can be had at a higher price.  

About Mooncakes

Mooncakes are traditionally eaten during the Moon Festival. They are a bit heavy, as they are a traditional desert from when the Moon Festival was a Harvest Festival.  Boxes of moon cakes are also given as gifts to important business clients.  If you have a Chinese bakery or market nearby, they will carry them.  I have also seen mini-moon cakes.

Moon Cakes symbolize both longevity and good health.  They are imprinted with the Moon Goddess, a grove, Jade Rabbit, or a toad.  The centers can contain red bean paste (sweet), lotus seed paste, melon, dried fruits, coconut, pineapple, and often have an egg inside.  The yolk symbolizes the moon and is considered lucky.  Moon Cakes are round like the moon, and the circle is a symbol of harmony. 

In the 14th Century, messages were contained within the Moon Cakes for a rebellion against the Mongols.
