[Costco] Full Moon Mooncakes for sale super early $11.88

Looks like super early this year. $11.88.

It says imported by, but not where its imported from.

Regardless, Costco's track record pretty good when it comes to Mooncakes

Or wait till the festival is over and try to snipe them on clearance haha

It's nearly August..

But yeah looks like all retailers are hoping on the super early bandwagon. I'm already seeing back to school stuff last week

They seem to be mixed assorted. See the picture of the back of the box I posted. I didn't really stop too long to investigate if they have straight on single type boxes

based on the back of the package, there are 4 types in 1 box. 1 with double yolk, 1 with mix nuts, 1 with red bean paste with melon seed, 1 with date paste single yolk.

How were they (taste wise) in past years?
I think they had different brands the past years. The previous ones that I remember were lotus paste with double yolk and imported from Macau. I find those not bad but my wife was super picky and said they were very bad so depends on your taste I guess.

Mid-autumn festival is Sept. 24 in western calendar. Considering we are almost in August, it is not too early.

Remember Costco always sell seasonal items well ahead of schedule. For example we see Christmas items in September, 3 months in advance.
Have a nice day!

OP's pic is of the red box only.

Golden box is all lotus. Double-yolk from what I can see.
There's a sucker born every minute.

the lotus paste that is whitish is chemically bleached. You might want to avoid those.

$11.88 is usually the clearance price. I think last years regular price was around $16.88. Then it dropped gradually

At $11.88, the mooncakes is going to sell out quickly. I doubt you will find too many on clearance this year.
Have a nice day!
