Ding ding...ding ding...Have you ever heard of Ding Ding candy?

Ding Ding candy, also known as Zhuo Zhuo candy or Dang Dang candy, is a traditional candy from Guangdong, China. It is said to have originated in Guangzhou and later spread to Hong Kong and Malaysia. The candy is named "Zhuo Zhuo" because the vendors need to use a hammer and chisel to break the sugar blocks in the pot when selling candy, which is called "Zhuo" in Cantonese. The sound of breaking the candy is similar to the Cantonese pronunciation of "Zhuo," so it is called "Zhuo Zhuo candy."

Ding Ding candy itself is a large piece of maltose candy with sesame and ginger flavors and a hard texture. To make it, the maltose candy is first melted and mixed with other ingredients, then constantly stirred. Before it fully solidifies, it is pulled into a candy gel on an iron rod. Finally, the candy gel is bound into a plate shape and left to cool and harden. When sold, it needs to be broken with a tool.
