This year, Green Common will be collaborating with Patisserie La Lune for the first time to release the Vegan Custard Mooncake. The popular Blueberry Mixed Nuts Vegan Mooncake released last year will be back on shelf as well. Both versions are made in Hong Kong and are entirely free of preservatives.

A healthier vegan custard mooncake made with vegan butter
In line with Green Common’s commitment to providing healthy, harmless food options, the Vegan Custard Mooncake will be made with ForaFaba Butter—a deluxe vegan butter from the US. These mooncakes contain 25% less fat, 8% less calories, and 11% less sugar than traditional shortbread custard mooncakes with two yolks. They also contain 0mg of cholesterol and 0g of trans fat (calculated per serving size). This makes it suitable for consumers of all ages, including those who may be lactose intolerant. Fora FabaButter, made from aquafaba (chickpeas) and a special blend of vegetable oils, will also be available on the shelves of Green Common shortly.
