Narrator:In the olden times, you could always find peddlers making sugar figures at the school gate. First, the maker takes a little maltose with a small spoon, and then shapes the soft maltose by hand, blowing gently, using his hands to form a figure, such as Sun Wukong, White Dragonet, and so on. The sugar figure is not only tasty, but also makes one cool. If one child bought a sugar figure, all his/her peers would crowd around and admire it.
Dada Bubble Gum
Narrator:Almost every kid is fond of chewing bubble gum. They also gather together to see who gets the largest bubble. I still remember that my cousin once blew a big bubble and the bubble burst, covering her face with gum！
Baby Face Ice Cream
Narrator:We prefer to call it snowman ice cream. It has a milk chocolate flavor and tastes very delicious. It was rather expensive; I remember the price was 1.5 Yuan per piece, which was not easy to afford in those days.
Malt Sugar Candy
Narrator:Malt sugar candy is usually called Tangguar in northern China, and is offered during a few days before the Spring Festival. It’s cheap and you can get several pieces for a few cents. It’s very sticky and delicious！
