The Mid-Autumn Festival is nearly upon us once again -- it's 13 September this year -- and you know what that means: It's time to stock up on sumptuous mooncakes of all flavours and partake in the season's most delicious holiday tradition. These days, the tasty treats aren't just relegated to classic flavours of lotus and red bean fillings, as Hong Kong's chefs and dessert purveyors have shed tradition to embrace all different variations of the delicious treat -- from dark chocolate to savoury versions and even ice-cream-filled varieties. Whichever flavour you choose, these delectable treats are perfect for gifting since restaurants pay as much attention to the beautiful and creative packaging as they do to the mooncakes themselves. With countless options to choose from, we've narrowed down 12 of our favourites this year -- perfect for picking out a holiday gift for friends and family, or simply indulging in a treat for yourself.
