Fly me to the moon

After asking Jeff what mooncake tastes like, he offered me one to try. Originally we had discussed passing it around to various bloggers to get a variety of opinions. After 2 failed attempts to pass it on, I decided to just share it with my coworkers.
Here is is being sneaky amongst 2 of my 3 office plants.
It came with this fancy knife.
Does anyone know what it says? I’m guessing it says "This is a mooncake, it is filled with lotus seed paste and two salted duck-egg yolks" I could be wrong.
Here it is sliced open.
I went first. It smelled really good!
It did not taste how it smelled!
The yolk part was VERY SALTY!!!! and the paste part was mild and yummy. If the yolks weren’t there I probably wouldn’t have shared it with anybody. But it would have taken me a while to eat it because it is very rich, heavy and filling. So I shared it!
Some people liked it more than others. Most people described it as ‘interesting’. One guy just ate a quarter of it and was all like "Yup, that’s a flavour".
So there you have it. Craving salty AND sweet? Try a mooncake!

In 2007 – the beginning of the end
In 2006 – what type of life leads to an ‘early’ death
In 2005 – I wonder what ever happened to that unicorn…
