OREO Mooncakes Are Available In Asia And They Look AMAZING

OREO has dropped some crazy flavors in Asia before, like their Hot Chicken and Wasabi renditions. One of their newer creations, though, merges the cookie sandwich with traditional Chinese/Vietnamese treats called mooncakes.

We found these OREO Mooncakes thanks to the Instagram twin team behind @mnmtwinz, Marcus and Matthew. While the treats are exclusive to Asia, they managed to purchase a gift set of the mooncakes on eBay.

Traditionally, mooncakes are consumed during the mid-Autumn Festival (also known as the Moon Festival), which is celebrated by both China and Vietnam. This year, it falls on September 24 to correspond with the season’s first full moon.

The mooncakes are meant to be shared with family, as a symbol of reunion and to wish for a long and happy life. These OREO versions were created as a way for folks to both partake in the tradition and enjoy OREO flavors at the same time.

They’re not necessarily new, as Design Taxi reported that China and Vietnam first carried these in 2017, however, other countries like Thailand and Singapore are getting exposed to them for the first time this year.

The dense outside of the cake is usually filled with a lotus seed paste that may come in various flavors. These special versions have that lotus interior, but also contain a second paste inside that provides one of various flavors. The ones that Marcus and Matthew tried included Brownie Chocolate, Double Chocolate with Milk, Strawberry Jam, and Custard and Pineapple Jam.

Those interested in trying them outside of Asia may find them hard to track down, as the eBay user that @mnmtwinz bought its set from, is currently out of stock. If you do get your hands on a set, though, you’re in for a unique twist on a mid-Autumn Festival treat.

Buttocks-Shaped Mooncakes Make a Cheeky Gift

Check out those hot buns.

Here’s an interesting way to kick off the Mid-Autumn Festival: butt-shaped mooncakes, anyone? Edging on more awkward than adorable, these booty buns ironically were made at Hong Kong-based shop, Goods of Desire. You can’t make this stuff up.

Available in designs such as “Mind The Gap”, “Cover-Up” and “Full Monty,” these naughty pastries are taking the term mooncakes to the extreme, and a box of four will run you $41. Did we mention the buns are filled?

No word on what exactly these buns are filled with but we’re hoping it’s red bean. Dear god please let it be red bean.
