It is the traditional specialty of the Shuangba town in the county of Shangqiu. With a history of more than 200 years, Weizhuang Sesame Candy is famous for its sweetness, fragrance, softness and crispness.
Its ingredients include high-quality rice, white sugar, sesame and malt. The first step in the making of this candy is to extract the syrup from the rice through a chemical process. Then the syrup is boiled down and stretched out. Next, when it cools down, it is cut and dipped in sesame and flour. Every sesame candy is nearly the same in both length and thickness. Being crisp and tasty, Weizhuang Sesame Candy is a favorite before the Spring Festival.
