There are four varieties of moon cakes available at Real Canadian Superstore, and they come in pretty colourful boxes found in the bakery section of stores (prices range from $11.99 to $16.99 depending on the variety and single vs. double yolk).
We have partnered up with Real Canadian Superstore to give away a $50 gift card to one lucky winner. You can use the gift card to purchase the moon cakes and ingredients to make the recipes for Mid Autumn Festival.
