Mmmm, childhood memories.
I have been trying to cut back on my sugar intake. Instead of having it make up 80% of my diet, I 'm working toward 40-50%. So as I am sitting here feeling deprived, I thought of my favorite treat on earth so far. Japanese Rice Candy. If you have never had rice candy, you must get some right now! They have just the perfect amount of sweetness and chewiness, and I'm not sure what flavor they are supposed to be, but I think it's called "perfect". My parents grew up in Hawaii and Hong Kong, and appanently these types of treats are plentiful there.
You can find them locally at Asian Markets, or online at:
