Hello Kitty Mooncakes - Happy Mid Autumn Festival!

I can't understand my sudden attraction to Hello Kitty.
Hello Kitty Mooncakes
All I knew was...I gotta have this box of Hello Kitty mooncakes from Maxim's.
Extra cheesy, extra cute, extremely adorable.
The box boasts 3D Hello Kitty hologram...each and every moon cake is individually wrapped in cute Hello Kitty packaging...bad for the environment, but good for sharing/giving out to friends/family.

...and what's that Hello Kitty head?
We'll see...

How cute the mooncakes are?

Cuteness to the maxx!!!
Too cute for words!

What's inside? Are they good?

The black one = black sesame with macadamia nuts, very very nutty.
The green one = green tea with chunky chestnut, very subtly flavored, I barely tasted the green tea or the chestnut, but hey...my palate isn't exactly sensitive :D
The chocolate one = tiramisu, chocolatey, coffee-y, creamy. Love it!
The best of four...the eggyolk custard! Slightly savoury, slightly sweet, super rich! Yum!

We haven't tried the rest...mango, fuji apple, rocky road...but judging from these four...they should be pretty good.

Well, if you look this cute...almost everything else's forgivable :D

...and the Hello Kitty head...

It's a carrier bag!
I'll be keeping this in my handbag...and let's see what other cuteness Hong Kong can come up with next year ;)

Happy mid autumn festival, everybody!
PS. My Hello Kitty madness didn't stop there...see more here.

I like it that they're jazzing up the mooncakes with new flavours. Now if only HK would export them to OZ :)

They have made it up to the environment by having that Hello Kitty Carrier Bag :)
