As the Mid-Autumn Festival is around the corner, the traditional Chinese delicacy - mooncake - has already hit shops and stores across the country. And mooncake makers also are doing their best to attract customers with various flavors and stuffing.

The family-reunion festival falls on Oct 4 this year, or the 15th day of the 8th Chinese lunar month, and eating mooncakes with families on the day is one of important ways for Chinese people to celebrate it.

Sadly, these "mooncakes" displayed in a jewelry outlet cannot be eaten as they are made of gold, silver, or jade, although they look more real than real.
