Haw Flakes

Back when I lived in New York--and before I started dating a carnivore (sigh...)--I spent nearly all my weekends at Veggie Paradise in Chinatown, where they had great veggie dim sum. It was the highlight of my week, particularly because next door was a great candy shop that sold and gave samples of(!) all kinds of bright colored Chinese candies.

My favorite stuff were these red disk things that I'd never spotted again until last week, when a friend introduced me to her own obsession: Haw Flakes.

For the uninitiated, think Necco wafers, but lighter, a bit fruitier, and more natural tasting. I'm a huge fan.
