Did you see these?
This brand is what first came to my mind for pineapple cake. But maybe he was looking for a different brand like Isabelle which I never ate before Smiling Face With Open Mouth And Cold Sweat
I don't know why the other poster didn't like them, I was in Taiwan and tried different brands, Isabelle is actually one of the better ones.
They use butter and there's lot of filling, granted most of these pineapple cakes actually contains winter melon and not actual pineapple lol

How does it stacks up to the Fat Choy brand from previous years/6 pack?

Saw these mooncakes at the Pointe-Claire location today. There were the variety packs as well as the white lotus packs.
I can't afford to save that much!

Something never change... Costco has been selling the Fat Choy Brand mooncakes since easily 2006 or at least every year since there has been a post about them and every year somebody will mention what it is, where they are made and then debate about China food products safety... The only thing that changed since 2006 is the famous HK brands are now charging $50+ a box for yellow lotus, per latest T&T flyer. moon-cakes-costco-10-49-11-99-a-338889/

But it looks like this year its the King pastry imported one sold mainly, without saying where it's made but probably PRC.

Wasn't Fat Choy from Macau?

At some point near 2006 the Fat Choy Brand ones were labeled as Made In Macau. But it hasn't been for a while so one can assumed they have moved to China like everything else. Anyway, just noticed these are by Kings not the Oct 5th brand I was thinking.

This is not the best brand. Sadly I was disappointed when I had the yellow one which is a full lotus paste instead of a variety pack. If you are eating mooncakes for the first time, you may want to see if there is a different brand that Costco may bring out like the one that has 6 mooncakes in it rather than 4. If there is not another brand, possibly going to your local Asian grocery store but beware of the variety of brands and prices probably can't be beaten by Costco.

I personally don't buy the variety pack because I don't like the dates and walnut version and the red bean paste was okay. If you've never tried mooncakes before, you may look at the variety pack as a taster but I think the full Lotus paste pack is better as if you don't like the other 2 or 3 mooncakes, you force yourself to eat the rest while the Lotus paste isn't that bad even if you don't think it tastes good.

People start (gently) hoarding Costco again.

I will stay away from it for a short while - more because I just don't like the crowds Face With Tears Of Joy

BTW mixed nuts mooncake is generally frowned upon in China. Correct me if I'm mistaken but my understanding is the ingredients in it, apart from nuts, are very much different from region to region yet the majority of Chinese people don't their tastes.

I'm still curious about this Costco variation..
