What's the difference between these one made in china and the one made locally? Don't they use ingredients that are made in china as well - except for maybe the egg?

Because they are more expensive. You can see the picture of prices on the last page and you see something similar (the double yolk) selling for $28.88 a box or $7.25 each vs $12.88 at Costco.

This is RFD after all, where people hunt for deals.
Have a nice day!

Because when we prioritize, local or not is at the very bottom. Otherwise, everyone will only buy at farmer's market and not trying to use the No Frills 5000 points for each $20 coupon as many times as possible.
If I buy something that is not in deep discounted, my father will punish me; everyone will laugh at me. I will be the strange kid who doesn't fit in.

The main ingredients come from China, especially the egg because it is not regular egg, they are salted duck eggs and they are not produced in Canada. Those yolks come from Asia; from China, maybe Vietnam.
The lotus paste come from China or another Asian country. The only local ingredient is probably flour and oil.
Have a nice day!

Is there a difference in taste for the flours and oils that we use locally compared to the one made form China? Sorry, i'm a noob at eating mooncake.

I prefer the snow skin Mooncakes even though they're not traditional.

The Product SKU is 1166718. You can probably call your closest Costco and inquire which locations near you have inventory.

This is a seasonal product, and I wonder how do Costco dispose unsold leftover Moon Cakes?

Do they ship them them to importer?
or
Donate them to food banks?

The best before date on seems to be around November 30th of this year. I suggest they will likely discount it and any leftover will stay somewhere on the floor for final sales before they are gone. Any leftover is likely garbage. Due to regulations despite the best before date not be the same as an expiry date, if someone gets sick from eating Costco donated mooncakes that is passed it's best before date, you know someone will sue them.
