Food as souvenir is always a smart choice to bring home to loved ones because it’s practically impossible to find someone who doesn’t appreciate edible goodies. In Hong Kong, tourists are spoiled for choice when it comes to food souvenirs, with a wide array of sweet and savory snacks to drool over.
Examples of classic Hong Kong snacks are egg rolls (sweet and flaky egg roll biscuits), pineapple shortcake (comes in different flavors such as walnut, yolk, mango, and honeydew; and usually packed in pretty gift boxes), Pretz shark’s fin flavor, dragon’s beard candy (Chinese cotton candy made of peanut, sesame, and sugar taffy), and Ma Jai (rice krispies with fried batter).
