Goods of Desire has done it again.

With the Mid-Autumn Festival just round the corner, the Hong Kong lifestyle label, famed for its knack to give old-school a modern (and often, cheeky) twist, has released their take on our favorite traditional munchies – Butt Mooncakes.

Taking form of the butt (hence the name), the mooncakes come in four bold designs, namely Bunny, Cover-Up, T-back and The Split. Why “Butt” you may wonder? Cos’ the day Mid-Autumn falls on the Lunar Calendar is August 15, which in Chinese goes as 八月十五 and is often referred to as a slang for (ahem) butts.

On our most recent visit, we were told by the friendly G.O.D staff attending to us, that the main draw of the brand’s latest release, is its immaculate design. True enough, even the boxes and paper bags in which the mooncakes come with are thoughtfully crafted to the Mid-Autumn festive theme.

But this is not to say that the mooncakes fail to delight us in terms of taste. Produced by Mei-Xin Fine Goods, a household brand in Hong Kong who also worked with G.O.D on its Mahjong Tiles Pineapple Tarts, ensured that the White Lotus Seed Paste was velvety smooth and just enough sweet.

The retail price of $14.50 each or $52 for a box of four might be a little out of budget for the wallet-conscious but if you’re looking to have something different for this coming Mid-Autumn, look no further than G.O.D!
