Celebrating the Mid-Autumn Festival with Koko Black

At a time where gifts are an extension of yourself, there is no better choice than a Koko Black mooncake lantern to create a memorable moment at this year’s Mid Autumn Festival.

On the 15th Day of the 8th Lunar month, when the moon is at its brightest in the year, comes a special time to celebrate the harvest season. Since its origin as the moon worship ceremony in the Zhou dynasty before 1000 BC, the Mid-Autumn Festival has been a day for friends and family to come together and pray for longevity and good fortune. As the holiday falls on the day of the full moon, it makes rooftops a great place to spend the evenings and share special foods.


Mooncakes – a traditional gift evolving.


At Koko Black, we are all about celebrating with loved ones in style and uplifting every such rare occasions to new heights with incredible artisan chocolate gifts. As we like contemporising our traditions, we couldn’t resist becoming part of the mind-blowing repertoire of mooncakes exchanged since the dawn of time. As the roundness of the moon symbolizes completeness and togetherness, the mooncake has been the perfect gift and the embodiment of this yearly celebration for over 3000 years.

From the ice skins of Hong Kong to the sweet and salty Cantonese specialties and through a hundred creative variations, the tradition has continued to evolve into an explosion of flavors, a literal food firework intrinsic to this family celebration.
