It's time to buy mooncakes - but which brand?

With the Mid-Autumn Festival coming up next week, it's time to get ready to stuff our faces with mooncakes. From traditional, sweet lotus-seed-paste pastries to fusion varieties with funky fillings, here's some of this year's best choices.

Perfect match

Mooncakes are not the healthiest of foods: the pastry is traditionally made of sugar and lard (although some use butter or oil), and while the filling can range from sweetened lotus paste or mashed red beans to nuts and ham, it usually contains cholesterol-laden salted duck eggs. All in all, it's a formidable mouthful - I've never met anyone who can eat a whole mooncake.

Over-the-moon mooncakes

Saturday is Mid-Autumn Festival, and the Young Post team has been on a mooncake taste-testing binge in pursuit of the perfect festive treat. Here are our picks - three lotus-seed paste traditional mooncakes and three creative snowy mooncakes. We really don't suggest, as we did, you eat all six different types on the same day.

lotus seeds

It's hard to believe these humble seeds grow in the beautiful lotus plant, about which reams of poetry have been written.

What is it? The seeds of the lotus grow in a green, bowl-shaped pod, which is often used by florists.

Mini mooncake magic

It's a small world in the mooncake business this year, as Master Tam demonstrated at the Sogo Freshmart in Causeway Bay yesterday.

Small in calories, small in sugar and small in size.

Hard to swallow

It looks like Singapore Airlines is going to have to think of another way to keep passengers happy. This Mid-Autumn Festival, the airline is treating its customers to 'specially made lotus paste and melon seed mooncakes'.

Internet information could be lifesaver

I recently unwittingly put at risk the life of my six-year-old nephew. The child suffers from G6PD. It is an inherited blood-enzyme deficiency by which ingestion of certain substances (and, for example, extreme stress) can produce headaches, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, fever and a potentially life-threatening attack of acute hemolytic anemia.
