This is milk flavored taffy. It was surprisingly not horrible. Will send some home so you all can experience it. I thought it was gum at first.
Grape flavored was a bit more familiar
As was strawberry
Fruit snacks, tasted a bit weird but that might just be the kind of fruit they are
Chinese trix! Not as good as the ones back home, I think the ones at home have more flavor.
In case you want some ice cream, Walmart and most supermarkets and convenience stores carry red and green bean Popsicles. This is not a joke.
Still haven’t found Chinese Mac and cheese though! The search continues…
Panda cookies. They have them here too! Not that I had any doubts, but its one of the only Chinese foods I immediately recognized, so it was nice to see them! Also, they have tons of different oreo flavors here. When I investigated more I saw flavors like apple, grape, and peanut butter. Will post a pic of all the kinds soon.
Well, my second day here I jumped right into things and ate spicy frog soup. Since then I have had tea leaf jello, numerous types of seafood, duck, maybe pork, beef, and a poor chicken that I saw living only hours before it was on my plate. I have tried many types of exotic fruits (see other post).
Yesterday I left the apartment alone for the first time since being here. It was a great, and really hot/humid, feeling. I walked to the market, about half a mile from the apartment, and awarded myself with some skittles and a Chinese candy I dared to try.
Consensus: the purple skittles are black currant, and the sinky candy is good. They are little star-shaped cookies that taste like blueberry pie. Very good. Today I bought a candy at the friendship store (a big store filled with a bunch of different departments, not unlike a western ‘department store’)
Sour strawberry candy: very good also! Found an interesting type of gum for my brother too, but not telling anymore just in case he reads this post!
The candy I was given at the airport after fainting! (Perks of 22 hours of travel, 36+ hours without good sleep, and lack of quality, non-airplane foods)
