Li hing gummy bears are one of my favorite snacks.
What exactly are they? They're gummy bears covered in li hing powder! What's li hing powder and what does it do to spice up regular ol' gummy bears?
Li hing is usually found in conjunction with mui (plum) as li hing mui, or salty dried plum. It adds a salty, sour, and sweet flavor and isn't limited to plums - in fact you can add li hing to most dried fruit and it'll be delicious. I've seen li hing pineapple, mango, apples, pears, and more.
You can buy li hing powder to add it to anything you want or you can buy snacks that are already li hing-ized, like my gummy bears. The best place to find them is an Asian market, like Mitsuwa
