    Default mooncakes: explain to this whitey

    For us whiteys like me and @suntan , can you explain to me mooncakes?

    I knew they existed. I knew they were considered a delicacy. I knew I had never yet tried one.

    That changed today. I finally tried it. It was gross to the point of offensive.

    I am comfortable with diverse foods. I can do me some dim sum and try everything with success. But wtf are with these mooncakes. Objectively and subjectively disgusting.

    They vary markedly in quality. Most are terrible though. Chinese can't make a dessert to save their lives.

    One of my Chinese employees brought some in that didn't suck, they were super expensive though - $40 for a box of 12 or some shit.

    Yup there are very vile versions and some really good versions. I have had some good ones and quite enjoyed them but have had some that made me want to vomit.

    The Costco mooncakes are terrible. Only insane people eat those.

    But as a general rule, they're all really heavy like that.

    So you not only admit to being a whitey and never trying them... but you bought them at the most whitey place to shop?

    Need to find someone to tell you where to find the good ones.

    Best bet is to go to T&T, go up to a random Chinese person, say "NIHAO PUNGYAO!" and ask them for good mooncakes.

    Chinese people love it when white people speak Chinese.

    I always thought these were an Amsterdam delicacy, not a Chinese thing… hippy version probably also tastes horrible, but side effects are more interesting

    I would stick with this brand for QA. Things has gone south last decade as tons of sources for mooncake has been sourced from China and ingredient quality has not been kept up.

    Traditional is basically a bake pastry crust with tons of lotus paste in the middle. Price goes up depends on how many salted egg yolk is buried inside. That's what you'll see the most.

    You will see other variants (just drop by T&T for their branded series) some with taro filling, some with low sugar version for diabetics etc.

    Then there are frozen one but they pretty much tastes like ice cream with chewy mochi shell.

    And if you want to do an expensive prank:

    If you want to try some that's made by local, Golden Happiness is our local Calgary/Canadian brand.

    But I don't find them that good.

    I think my exploration of a mooncake lifestyle has run its course.

    Forgetting the name is for sure a side effect

    Mooncakes are the fruitcakes/egg nog of chinese culture. Expensive and heavy desserts served and given as gifts during the holidays. Every culture has some version of it and its never all that good because if it was actually good we'd be having it year round.

    I'm not disgusted by it but its not worth the price or calorie count for me. That being said there's a lot of variation in these things and the costco version is just one kind (lotus seed paste with salted egg yolk). I've had pretty delicious versions of them in China filled with nuts/seeds and candied fruits all deep fried. You can probably find a pretty delicious version of fruitcake but it won't be at safeway.
