My Collection of Wedding Candy Box :))
« on: January 31, 2009, 05:02:21 AM »
Do foreign people give guests joyful candy at their wedding banquet?If Chinese people ask you "when can we eat your joyful candy?",It means "when will you get married?" :)As you know,in China,red and golden are festival color, so mostly boxes are in red&golden.(Generally speaking,one wedding only has one kind of candy box.)

I have collected the boxes for several years. I don't wanna the chocolate or panocha in it ,i just like the exquisite box:)

Very nice collection, I noticed in the third picture that one of the boxes had the"Dove Chocolate" logo.  I knew it was a popular chocolate, but not worldwide.

To tell the truth, I'm not a big fan of chocolate, but I will enjoy a good Reese's Peanut Butter Cup.  And I have always wanted to try chocolate in other County's among other things. :)

So am I. Girls must be careful about their stature.XD
Peanut Butter is great~~
I prefer almond chocolate.

Chocolate is "foreign food" for Chinese,people eat local dessert more.For e.p. my hometown Suzhou is famous of its dessert. Do you like dessert? Maybe you could buy some in the Chinatown.

 I'm also a big fan of almonds but I'm more of a coconut maniac above all.

 I have been to many Restaurants and pastry shops in China town, namely in Philadelphia and Boston.  I could never remember what the names were( I think I was told "Bing"?), but I do remember how delicious they were.

you mean the rounded cookie like the pic?The food like that (or bigger/thinner than it) is called"Bin".It's made of flour, pastry shops may sell that.



hmm,"Bin" is in general terms.Have you tried China's Mooncake?Maybe it's the most famous "Bin" to foreigners.

  Yes! that's what it was, Mooncake.  It was Cantonese style and very expensive, but delicious non the less.

What's "non the less" mean??

Cantonese style is one of the most famous styles in China.

I like mooncakes with meat in them,especially the heated,there is delicious broth in it^^

 Sorry typo, there was supposed to be an "e" at the end of none. Well its a phrase that has the same meaning as "however".  So when I said "It was Cantonese style and very expensive, but delicious none the less", I was implying that even with the high price I still enjoyed the Mooncake.  Sorry for the confusion. :^_^U:

You really a good collector of a wedding candy box, it seems that those boxes are really nice that you've collected then on many years. I just notice the pink box in the sixth picture, it looks really beautiful. Someday I'm getting to have some chocolate that looks like that.
