Starbucks in Singapore has updated its vegan menu. The coffeehouse chain now offers vegan mooncakes.
Mooncakes, which originated in China, typically feature filling made from red beans or lotus seed paste and a crust including lard or egg yolk.
Starbucks is making the treat with a vegan recipe, however. Singapore locations of the chain offer a mooncake collection and social media users have noticed that all of the snowskin varieties are free from animal products.
The mooncakes aren't a new addition to Starbucks' menu; the chain has offered them for years in its locations in Hong Kong, China.
The largest coffeehouse chain in the world hasn't ignored the public's growing interest in plant-based food.
South Korean Starbucks cafes now offer vegan Banana Pecan Pound Cake. Last year, locations in the East Asian country also launched layered vegan cake and dairy-free grilled onion focaccia bread.
In the UK, Starbucks offers dairy-free mac 'n' cheese, a vegan tofu breakfast burrito, and vegan chocolate mini cakes. Earlier this year, British Starbucks locations also introduced chocolate-topped Vegan Pistachio Butter Bars and Vegan Almond Butter Bars.
