Today’s post is part of a weekly series called “Travel Toss-Up,” in which we ask you to take your pick between two amazing travel experiences.

This week’s toss-up offers a choice of two scrumptious sweets.

Would you rather…

… try baklava in Turkey, or …

… enjoy a mooncake in China?

Baklava is a popular dessert in Turkey, Greece, and other countries in the Mediterranean and Middle East. Phyllo dough is stuffed with chopped nuts and drizzled with honey. Mooncakes are traditionally eaten during China’s Mid-Autumn Festival, accompanied by a cup of tea. They’re made of lotus seed or sweet bean paste, along with lard and egg yolk — a delicious but calorie-rich treat.

Tell us your preference in the comments below!

    I LOVE baklava, so it’s hard to vote against that one! But I’m going for the mooncake just to try something new. :)

    I think I’ll choose the mooncake with a nice cup of tea. Maybe the baklava next time :)

    Baklava, 11 out of 10 times. I have yet to respond to a simpler question about food.
