It's the fruitcake of China.I've had Mooncakes these past two years and let me tell you, for a special treat they're pretty crappy.I did find it funny that someone in the article complained they are "too sweet". In my experience they are bland and kind of oily. In America we'd give these to small children if they were bad.
Well they certainly won't substitute for a good moon pie.
Most of my congregants are Chinese. Chinese "sweets" are rarely what Americans would call sweet. And in my experience Chinese people sometimes eat things not for the taste but for what they represent. I've either always had or developed an Asian preference for sweets that aren't very. And I've had some good moon cakes in the last 12 years of serving this little parish.
If I'm going to dedicate that many calories for a dessert there better be some whipped cream and chocolate involved.
Well it's a marvelous time for a mooncakeWith the stars up in your eyesA fabulous night to eat mooncake'Neath the cover of October skies...
I actually like moon cakes. But then I actually like fruitcake too.
If you like them, do you 800 calories like them?
Way to finally get on board the mooncake subject, Althouse. Jason was there long, long ago.
I take it you moon it before you pass it on to somebody else.Which stems from the Johnny Carson Theory of Fruitcake:There's only one and it just gets passed from one unwilling recipient to another.Jason (the commenter) said...It's the fruitcake of China.I've had Mooncakes these past two years and let me tell you, for a special treat they're pretty crappy.This, of course, is in a country where, until, Mao took out about 60 mil and his successors began forcing abortion on everybody, people died in the millions from famine.Anything at all rich was probably viewed as a treat.
With the exception of Vietnamese French bread, I find baked goods in Asia completely and utterly suck. There are so many good things to eat in China. Fruitcake is not one of them.

Little known fact:The same engineering and mathematical principles used to make fruitcakes are also used by the companies that manufacture both the discus and free weights.
Pete: Way to finally get on board the mooncake subject, Althouse. Jason was there long, long ago.To be fair, the Chinese were there a little before either of us.
Vietnamese mooncakes are goooood, and not expensive, either. (At least the ones down at the Vietnamese grocery store.)Red beans, yum....
