Angry Birds Mooncakes

With the beginning of restaurant week just a few days away, I thought we’d stick with the food related posts this week.

Hands up if you like the highly addictive Angry Birds game that has made gazillionaires out of the people who created it? Hands up if you like moon cakes, the traditional cakes that are already on sale ahead of the annual mid-autumn festival which is coming up in a few weeks? Well now you can combine both passions and buy Angry Birds mooncakes!

I’m actually a big fan of the HK style mooncakes with white lotus bean paste and egg filling, although there are many regional variations. They’re very sweet so I only usually have a quarter at a time, with a cup of English Breakfast tea. I’m not sure how the Angry Birds mooncakes stack up but I’d be happy to give them a try.

Buy them here on Taobao for 98 RMB for a small gift presentation tin with two cakes. Weeeee!

    I can’t blame Rovio for giving too much attention to their chinese market. Considering that the country have 900 million samrtphone users. And to be honest, the mooncake festival update in Angry Birds seasons looks promising. I’m sure even non-chinese consumers will download this game.

    I thought I had seen it all. What will they think of next?

    Oh well, I hate angry birds and I can’t stand mooncakes so all the more for you. I personally prefer the Haagen Dazs ones.

    Angry Birds – good! Moon cakes – disgusting! No need to combine the two although I am sure its a gimmick that will make plenty of money!

    I still like my Wing Wah zero yolk all lotus paste ones. But i think they’re made with pure pork fat, so maybe just one this year.

    Greatest combo ever!

    @Bob – A very fine assessment. But what your statistics won’t show is that Chinese people, more than most, are so addicted to their phones. It’s not uncommon to see a group of four eating dinner and all four, instead of talking to each other will be playing with their phones. In fact, I’m right this minute having a meal with 3 others! So yes, the potential is massive.

    @Kim C – What is wrong with Angry Birds? Weeeeeeeeeee!!

    @T – Yeah I already have my stock of Wing Wah direct from wonderful HK. I’m not crazy about the egg either. Single or no egg is fine for me. I don’t like the ones that are basically all egg and no lotus paste.

    @Brando – The best combo was the two chicks I took home the other day. But this is a close second!

  9. T. says:

    @WoAi – what do you do with two chicks and two cats in the apartment? Aren’t you worried the cats are going to eat the chicks? And what do you feed the chicks – you have bird seed or something?

  10. WoAi says:

    @T – I always make the mistake of assuming my readers all live the same kind of lifestyle as I do which is of course my bad. Males who are sexually active sometimes refer to girls as chicks (in America) or birds (in England) when recalling fond experiences of a sexual nature.

  11. T. says:

    @WoAi – Yes, but what do YOU refer to girls as since you can’t use chicks or birds?

  12. WoAi says:

    @T – Touché!
