flavors of childhood

Was thrilled to find this in a drawer last night~stashed away from my SF trip last August. Some of my earliest memories include the Lunar Parade in SF's Chinatown, egg flower soup, and this enchanting candy that had a rice paper wrapping that melted like magic.  

My dentist will be equally as thrilled that I found it at 9 p.m. and ate half the box.


  1. Oh, WOW. Wow, wow, wow. I remember that candy!!!! Childhood indeed did hold a whole host of things like that dreadful sesame candy that was glued into little bars with honey, and just stuck right into one's teeth? And this one, too, which seems to be the Chinese version of Turkish delight.

    Ah, good times. We couldn't move our jaws half of childhood.

    1. My grandma usually had those sesame candies...& I now know exactly what to hand out when I want jaws immobile!!!
