It is Moon Festival time and I really want some moon cakes.

Is there anywhere to buy them in Charlotte?

Are you talking about Moon Pies? If so, I've seen them at the Cracker Barrel. They do a great job of selling "vintage" type foods.

Good Luck

The moon cake is the food for the Moon Festival. The Chinese eat the moon cake at night with the full moon in the sky.
Sorry DawnW, I can't help you out. I've never heard of Moon Cakes before. Via google, I found this recipe Mid Autumn Moon Cake

Try Asian Market & Seafood on South Boulevard (704) 553-8008. You can also order them online at Chinasprout.com, they offer 4 flavors.

Good Luck

Moon pies....oh, sorry, no! I actually can't stand those things! But my kids love them.

No, Chinese moon cakes.

Hmmmm......I wonder if I could make them at all? That would be very interesting to try!

Thanks,
Dawn

There are 2 big asian markets(New Century & International Market) at the corner of Sugar Creek and North Tryon. You can find moon cakes there. If you can read Chinese, home.sina.com offers some selections from name brand Chinese bakeries.

We ordered ours from China Sprout but it's probably too late for that. I saw molds on Amazon.com so you could make them also.
