Unique Treats- Lunar New Year

Lunar New Year is on Monday, and some of my sweet students gave me some traditional treats.

 1. sugared, colored coconut strips; corn, strawberry, taro, and banana candy; candied pineapple, papaya and ginger; one prune.

 2. extremely sticky rice tightly wrapped in layers and layers of banana leaves.

3. spam-like meat (made with lots of MSG) wrapped in layers and layers and LAYERS of banana leaves.

Guess which one was my favorite!


  1. Looks like you couldn't wait for a picture to dig into the spam. My vote!

    1. Hah! Oddly enough, the spam and the coconut had almost the same flavor. I think it's all the MSG.

  2. The prune. After you have enjoyed all the other snacks, it will put everything right. (Dad)
