I loved these last year, they were delicious. Got a pack this week and it seemed a bit oilier, but still tasty.

I looked at these at the store, and passed on them as no where does it say where they are made. It says very clearly that they are imported by some place in Mississauga, but no clue where they are made. I know it shouldn't make a difference, but I like full disclosure.

that's sus.
Their company is based in Ontario. https://kingspastry.com/
I thought they would make it in-house and label lit as MADE IN CANADA but it says imported.
It's safe to assume these are made in China since 90% of mooncakes out there are made in China.
Except Hong Kong Meixin.

Same.. I put it back. 🤣 Why can't they just say where it's actually from? Thinking Face
The $40 ones says it's from Taiwan. Lol!

Looking at the nutritional list there, where this is made is the least of my concerns

If you came in here looking at nutritional fact, you are looking at the wrong food item.

Just to let you folks know, these don't taste very good. Price point excellent, but if it's your first time eating mooncake or if you don't know what a decent one tastes like, I advise not buying these to try.

I am not sure why anyone would eat these really. No Asian person who knows mooncakes buys these either which is a sign for you too.

Out of all the mooncakes these are the best. I buy them every year and they don't disappoint. They use 100% pure lotus seed paste and premium duck egg yolk.

It is an okay Cantonese style mooncake. Sure there are tons of more expensive ones but that's less the food, more the brand and gift package.
Always fun to watch all of them on clearance when closing to mid-autumn.

It's just salted duck egg yolk. You can buy it separately at most Asian grocery stores.

These are great to give to people you don’t particularly care about because it’s so cheap, I personally would spend a few more bucks and get ones made in Taiwan.

Honestly, no self respecting Chinese will buy mooncakes at Costco. Full disclosure: I'm Chinese.
