What do Chinese Moon Cakes taste like?
#1
Ilovechinesemooncakes, you really have me wondering about these. I just looked them up at Wiki, but what does "lotus paste" taste like? They look very yummy... In fact the other day when I was out to do the grocery shopping I drove past the local Chinese market, and I thought of YOU, and I almost stopped in there to inquire about the delicacies, your namesake, but then in the end didn't. I didn't want to get sidetracked; too much to do errand-wise et al... Next time I just might have to go and buy some.

They look like one of those foods that are tasty to the eye but not to the mouth.

They taste like communism, cheese (which is used to make the moon) and cake.

I'm all for taking a bite out of communism.

An oldie-but-goodie from the incomperable comic "Red Meat".

I've had a few; some are good and some are pretty gross.  They were much better when fresh.  The bean paste ones have a mild flavor and are vaguely sweet, and very filling.

Oh, I forgot all about this thread.  :laughing: Son of a gun. Thanks for the replies. I think I'll get some moon cakes when I go out shopping today, since I'll be going past the Chinese Market, anyway.
