Chinese New Year Snacks

Chinese New Year Eve is always a FEAST with many dishes. However, the festivities don’t just stop there. Following Eve, the remainder of the week is filled with sweets and other treats. Pictured here are two pomelos and a platter of dried fruits (dried coconut chunks, longan fruit, lotus root, winter melon) and a random pile of Ferrero Rocher, because clearly they are good any day of the year!


The Chinese culture can be pretty superstitious, so many of things eaten have meaning behind them. If you want to learn more about the symbolism behind Chinese New Year snacks, click here. 🙂
