Moon cake for sale


Moon cake stalls are starting to be set up all over town for the coming mid-autumn festival. The thing that cracks me up about moon cake is that no one seems to eat it. Everyone just passes the moon cake on as the gift that just keeps on being given

Hello Simon, I wish I could be there now for the Mid Autumn festival, always one of my favorite when I was growing . I am just a little surprised about how pricey these cakes sell for, seem to be a good chunk of change for the average Vietnamese there. I don't remember that they were that expensive ( in relation to earnings) then.

BTW, we did not pass these moon cakes to others, they disappeared rather quickly in my family. They were not the equivalent of the American fruit cakes that just go around and around and around...

I love moon cakes... The cake here in US is not the same..

I loved these sweet treats growing up in VN. America's got Halloween, Vietnam's got Tết Trung Thu.

I've been given 12 so far, they're not my favourite thing but I appreciate the thoughts. I'll pass them on to people I know who will enjoy them.

12 Boxes??? That's a lot of bánh Trung Thu!!!

Thankfully not, 12 mooncakes in total, I'd run out of people to give them to otherwise.
