A friend of mine was in Shanghai and enjoyed a particular dessert item that was "the best dessert she ever had". She said that it saddened her to think she would probably never get to have it again.
So I had her write a description. Here it is:
About the dessert...
It was shaped like a Hershey's kiss, except bigger. Maybe the size of dim sum. The outside was orange and made of pumpkin. The inside was dark, and I think it was a bean paste. Sweet.
Anybody know what this is?
