The 10 most original mooncakes

The 19th of September will be this year’s moon festival of the Chinese calendar. At that time, Chinese people are used to meeting their family and eating special dishs, like mooncakes, or yuebing in Chinese. So it is a good time for Chinese shops to try to invent special mooncakes and do special marketing to sell more.

Here you will find the most original mooncakes:
