Growing up on the islands, li hing mui was a staple in the kitchen. Whether making it myself, or picking up some li hing sweets from the swapmeet, it was my most favorite treat!

Local Sweets has made such an impact on the community, we're so happy to be able to share some island flavor and my childhood pastime with everyone!
