I LOVE mooncakes, but I don't know where to get vegan mooncakes, and I don't want them sugar and fat laden..anyone knows where to go? I may suffer from withdrawal symptoms very soon.:)

Most vegetarian shops and veg cake shops will sell vegan mooncakes when in "season." If you want vegan mooncakes that are low in sugar and fat, you may have to make them yourself! The oil is necessary for the texure.

How do I make my own? I think it's very troublesome right? I'd rather buy. But where? I'm really not familiar.

Haha! Snowskin contains copious quantities of the deadly sugar that Melissa fears:o! Actually, we can substitute with raw sugar and use less to make it a little healthier. Sugarless snowskin would be pretty boring I think, but outside snowskin is usually too sweet.

Oh..I don't really like snowskin mooncakes, I love the traditional lotus seed mooncakes! But even if I get the ones without the egg yolk(which I hate), the skin already contains egg.

I think most don't use egg for the traditional skin, perhaps just for the glazing, although most will use margarine. Get from the veggie cake shops to be sure.

Amway mooncakes are much sweeter, suitable for vegetarians as my vege aunt ever bought that too. Not cheap though.

I'm sure Lingzhi mooncakes aren't too bad for my dad right? I hear that there are healthier mooncakes now but I don't know where to find them..

Oh u mean those from veggie cake shops dun use margarine?

There is also the cheap cheap kind of mooncake which says "lotus paste" but is actually bean paste I think, they are ok.

I think they do use margarine to glaze the mooncakes. Cheaper too.
