Mooncakes are the traditional pastries given out during the Mid-Autumn Festival, the Chinese holiday that this year lands on October 3, aka the 15th day of the eighth month of the lunar calendar. Red Cook has a roundup of non-traditional mooncakes made for this popular holiday, such as coffee-flavored mooncakes from Starbucks, ice cream mooncakes from Häagen-Dazs, and...butt-shaped mooncakes? Hong Kong-based lifestyle goods store G.O.D. (stands for "Goods Of Desire") is behind this series of eight butt-shaped mooncakes for a different take on the word "moon."
