Fast Food Mooncakes

McDonald's is Now Boxing Baked Mooncakes for the Mid-Autumn Festival

— August 30, 2017 — Lifestyle
As baked mooncakes are often incorporated into celebrating the Mid-Autumn Festival in Asia, McDonald's is now offering boxes of branded McCafé goods that are fit for celebrating the season.

The McDonald's mooncakes are boldly stamped with the iconic golden arches, made with ingredients from Vietnam and touted as the perfect companions to a cup of hot Arabica coffee. The packaging designed for McDonald's by the INCA creative agency boasts a split design that can be opened to reveal separate pull-out boxes on two sides, topped with a vibrant illustration design that shows off potential product pairings.

TWG Tea and Starbucks are some of the others that have previously launched branded mooncake collections across Asia to help fans celebrate the annual Mid-Autumn Festival with their favorite brands.
