Candy fruit?


Of course, this is for kids. But, I still like to eat this. A little bit too sweet to me, now. But, when I was a kid, I like it very much.

First, you can choose the fruit you want. I mean, if you want to make this by yourself. Boil the sugar to become "liquid". Then, put the fruit into that syrup and get it out of syrup fast. The out layer of "candy fruit" will become harder in room temperature.

See, there are small tomatoes. The black one between tomatoes is sugar & acid pickled prune. :)

    MP, today kids are not so used to these 'natural' sweets: I brought to mine some candies of similar kind from Asia (Singapore airport), they were mere kandized fruits, good...and what happened? Kids do not like it as much as some coca-cola sweets! They finished on the Christmas tree ornaments.

    well, this candy fruit is a kind of traditional Chinese snack food for kids. Especially you can find this in Bei-jing. This food is famous in Bei-jing. Of course, you can find this in other cities in China or in Taiwan, too. They use many kinds of local fruits. Such as orange(one piece), small tomato, strawberries, and etc.

    My friend told me that she didn't see this in foreign countries.(or outside Asia) So, that's the reason for me to write this.

    Coa-cola is from western countries, of course, western kids will like it. :) Otherwise, how can Coca-cola have good sales? :)

    those look similar to Japanese dango. Do you know "dango." They are small sweet mochi on a stick. Completely different but I was suprised at how similar they look.

    Yes, I know this. There are also roast mochi on a stick,too. Both in Japan & here in Taiwan. Same as you know, Taiwan was Japan's colony for 50 years before world war 2. At 1945, Japan gave back Taiwan to Republic of China. So, it not strange for people here to like Japanese foods or to know Japanese foods. :) Chao ~~Or I shall say sanyonala ~~~Goodbye in Japanese. ^~^ !!
