The Mid-Autumn Festival is coming soon. As a must-have traditional festive treat, mooncakes have been not only popular among Chinese but also loved by foodies worldwide. Well, if you think you can only get “old school” flavors like red bean pastes, white lotus, salted egg yolk, and wuren (five kinds of nuts), you are far from right! Even beverage brands are introducing their best flavors into this traditional food.
Swedish plant-based drink brand OATLY just launched its giftbox to celebrate Mid-Autumn Festival, which includes four different flavored mooncakes and four of its signature oat drinks, namely, Original, Mango, Chocolate, and Strawberry. You will find mooncakes in innovative flavors like Green Bean Sesame, Caesar Black Truffle, Green Bean Oats and Cranberry Oats.
The gift box can be turned into a board game for get-together with families and friends. The sleek tumbler can be a great company wherever you go and get a latte with oat milk.
