An authentic and tradition Chinese pastry typically eaten during Chinese celebrations, particularly Mid-Autumn Festival, which is always held on the fifteeth day of the eighth month according to the lunar calendar.

Traditionally, mooncakes have a lotus seed paste filling that also contains a whole salted yolk from a duck egg, and a decorative imprint on the top crust. Modern mooncakes, however, range in texture and filling, including but not limited to red bean, nuts, jujube, and taro. Ice-cream filled mooncakes are one of the latest trends.
