Starbucks Mooncakes

This post is a little late, but I wanted to share the Starbucks Mooncakes I received for Mid-Autumn day.

Starbucks can be found in practically any country, but I've found that they have some local products to cater to local tastes. 

Mid-Autumn Day is a lunar festival celebrated by Chinese people, including people in Hong Kong, Taiwan, and overseas Chinese communities.  One of the traditional pastries eaten during this time are Mooncakes.  Every food-related store in China carries mooncakes during this period, and Starbucks is not an exception!

Because mooncakes are often bought as a gift for others, the packaging is often very elaborate.





This being Starbucks, the flavors of the mooncakes are not very traditional, but semi-related to Starbucks flavors, such as coffee and matcha.



Some of the mooncakes had the Starbucks Siren logo on top as well.



Mooncakes are very fattening, being very sweet and oily. I froze all of the mooncakes I received so that they will keep for a while. 


What kind of special Starbucks items are there in your area?

xoxo, K
