A hundred years ago, a grocery called Qian Feng employed a native of Ningbo called Mr. Yin to be the manager. Mr. Yin was good at doing business and his handicraft of cake making was brilliant, and he often beat his brains. In Qian Feng grocery he tried to make a kind of cake called Bean Crunchy Candy. He chose Huagou soybean maturing at August or December as the material because this kind of soybean had big grain, dense powder and pure chromat. He was critic of the material so he only chose rich, rootless and moth-free soybean. After stir-frying the soybeans, he removed the hulls, drilled them into power and sieved them with bolting silk, and then turned them into pie with No.5 white sugar imported from England and black sesame seeds from Yanzhou. The black sesame seed power grown in Yanzhou was better than that in other places, due to its rich sarcocarp, abundant oil and impressive taste. The material made into cerealose was also selected, for it should be white and the material should be glittering old glutinous rice. After carefully processing, wrapped the crunchy candy and made it welldefined and even in thickness. Sirup should not be used while closing the bottom in case that the Bean Crunchy Candy becomes wet.
Lubu Bean Crunchy Candy is crisp, tasty, impressive and suitable for both the young and the old. It has strongly received customers’ acceptance after coming into the market. Many customers from Beijing and Shanghai ordered this crunchy candy, so it is known by more and more people from then on.
