Quantity selected exceeds current stock
Tribute candy, a blend of peanuts and maltose, was originally called "ground candy" in Fujian because the peanuts used in making it are ground continuously to give it the proper crumbly texture. The name changed on Kinmen because few of the ROC soldiers who secured the island understood the Fujianese word for "grind." These soldiers instead took to calling the candy "tribute candy," and the new name, which has a similar sound as well as conveying an air of imperial quality, stuck.
Tribute candy was first brought to Kinmen from Xiamen by master-candy-maker Chen Shih-ming in 1931. But while tribute candy has its origins in Fujian, most people agree that the candy of Kinmen is even better than that of Xiamen, in part because Kinmen's dry soil produces a smaller, rounder and more flavorful peanut.
