Foodie Friday: Sesame Sticks

Sesame sticks: rectangular sesame treats


If you haven’t already heard, Monday marked the beginning of Chinese New Year. It’s the Year of the Monkey in 2016 (the fire monkey, to be exact). Overseas, people get seven days off to celebrate the holidays.

When we were visiting Taiwan, people looked at us funny because kids don’t get winter break there–their time off is consolidated around the lunar new year. Besides meeting up with family, New Year is a great time to eat tried-and-true treats. One common and yummy snack is the sesame stick.

Did you/are you celebrating Chinese New Year?
