Here are some that we're dying to sample:

Yeah, yeah, some of you might feel a little disturbed seeing the Studio Ghibli icon decapitated, but we've got to admit that lotus and yolk mooncakes never looked so cute. These come in 2 flavours (White Lotus with whole salted egg and Durian Lotus with whole salted egg) and 4 other designs: roses, pigs, rabbits, and Gudetama.
