What is this Chinese pastry called?

My grandma has been getting us this bread a few times a year ever since I was a kid. I've seen it in the bakery we go to in Chinatown, NY, but I never ordered it myself. I moved out of the area about five months ago and though I haven't visited many Chinese bakeries here (in Las Vegas), I haven't seen it in any of the ones I have stopped in. I was thinking of trying to make it myself. Does anyone know what it's called (picture attached) and, if anyone has it, would you mind sharing a recipe? :)

If not, I can try to find it when I know what it's called. I tried googling different keywords and "chinese sweet bread" seems to be a popular combination, but I haven't seen anything too similar unless the recipe is the same, but the way people are making it is different. I have seen individual buns in pictures, but in my photo, the bread in question is in a round foil container in the middle of the shelves.

Unfortunately, because the picture was taken on my phone, I can't make out the words when I zoom in on the label.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

Edit: I apologize if this should go on another board. Since I'm looking for the recipe, too, I thought I'd post it here.
