No, but I guess it means there isn't a lot of preservatives that extend the shelf life to a year. Since it is a seasonal product, it also means that it is not expected to be on a shelf for that long and people don't buy and leave mooncakes at home for so long either.

The lotus paste come from China or another Asian country. The only local ingredient is probably flour and oil.
the factory in China probably use Canadian flour and Canadian CANOLA oil Grinning Face With Smiling Eyes

Do they ship them them to importer?
or
Donate them to food banks?
I thought a lot of Costco products were sold on consignment?

You have to check the ingredients, those in Walmart may contain white bean paste.

Don't worry, there is never any leftovers of mooncake at Costco.

Usually there is nothing left after Moon Festival Day, which is Oct. 1 this year, because Costco always discount the price of them and they go like hotcakes. Some times Costco discount the mooncakes a week before festival day, with additional discount later on.
Have a nice day!

Anyone seen these at any of the Costco in GVR? I did see them for $18.99 - possibly a different brand at the Costco GVR d/town location.

A friend made these on her own and gave some to me. Honestly home made ones are so much more healthy and basically not oily like the ones you buy.

With an open mind my girlfriend and I bought a box and tried it for the first time. Terrible. We both didn’t like it. It’s almost like eating uncooked pie dough with dried crumbly salty yoke inside.

But hey at least you gave it a shot! If you haven't thrown the rest out or given it away I would suggest a different eating/serving method. Cut into eighths and just take really small bites of the cut pieces. This stuff is very calorie heavy and dense so eat sparingly :D
