Panda Biscuits

These are fairly iconic of the Far East and are absolutely delicious. These chocolate-flavoured cookies are shaped like Pandas and come in delightful boxes depicted a cartoon Panda’s face. They are ideal for both indulging in or even gifting to your friends.

Dragon’s Beard Candies

These sweets are an exquisite mix of peanuts, and sesame filling coated in a thread-like substance similar to cotton candy which is what led to the item’s name. Although these are best when they are fresh, there are several brands that sell them in packaged form.

Ding Ding Candies

These are a classic treat and are named after the sounds that result from the candy-makers breaking the hand candy into smaller pieces. If you’re staying at a Hong Kong hotel along the likes of Dorsett Wanchai Hong Kong you’re going to have to explore snack-shops/groceries along street corners since it’s hard to find these in the usual supermarkets.

Chocolate Ramen/Instant Noodles

Yes, these are packets of instant noodles with sachets of chocolate sauce within them. They’re meant to be some sort of dessert-noodle dish and would definitely make an interesting souvenir.
