This was given to me by my Chinese Co-worker. I accepted it in kindness-and in kindness I took a bite in front of her. In kindness I didn't spit it back out.
I hate foreign "candy" I flat out tell people don't give me that foreign shit. I guess I am a fat American slob because candy from other places taste like tofu..or like food that is healthy. It's not sweet, or sugar filled.
Said the symbol is for something to the effect of "having everything" or being well and happy in all things.
I waited till she left and down a few glasses of water to get the taste out my mouth-dry..like a cookie with no flavor
