My Fave Childhood Candies Revealed

When I was a kid, I used to buy these @orientalphils white rabbit, kiamoy, and tianle on the nearby sari sari store and maglalako.
Kiamoy is a salty dried plum that is one of the many popular Chinese treats in the Philippines. It is usually dry and ranges in color from red to orange to brown.
Some versions are not very dry.
A Chinese name for this salty dried plum is Li hing mui (旅行梅), but it is called huamei (話梅) in many regions.
Kiamoy is likely a southeastern rendition of the word huamei.
It is also spelled kiamuy or kiam muy.
The powder is called kiam-muy-hoon.
It is:
✔️ Imported From Japan
✔️Aji Ichiban Inspired
✔️ Unique Tasting Candy
Another one is the White Rabbit Candy is a brand of milk candy manufactured by Shanghai Guan Sheng Yuan Food, Ltd.
White Rabbit Creamy Candy is white, with a soft, chewy texture, and is formed into cylinders approximately 3 cm long and 1 cm in diameter, similar to contemporary western nougat or taffy.
Each candy is wrapped in a printed waxed paper wrapper, but within this, the sticky candies are again wrapped in a thin edible paper-like wrapping made from sticky rice.
The rice wrapping layer is meant to be eaten along with the rest of the candy and can be found in the list of ingredients in the UK as "Edible Glutinous Rice Paper (edible starch, water, Glycerin Monostearate)" along with liquid maltose, white granulated sugar, whole milk powder, butter, food additives (gelatin, vanillin), corn starch, syrup, cane sugar and milk.
Each candy contains 20 calories.
It brings back good childhood memories and I can’t help but smile.
They are now available at Shopee, check out the official store -
