    Jimmy O. Yang is a comedian and actor best known for his roles in Silicon Valley, Space Force, and Crazy Rich Asians. He also stars in the romantic comedy Love Hard with Nina Dobrev, available on Netflix now. But the Hong Kong-born comic also has an encyclopedic knowledge of snacks, drinks, and candies. On an all-new episode of Snacked, Jimmy breaks down some of China's most iconic treats-from White Rabbit candy and haw flakes to lychee coconut jelly and mooncakes-as well as his personal stash of animal crackers from Japan.

For most Chinese, the more salted egg yolks you have inside the mooncake, the better it is. Some mooncakes have four egg yolks. The ones on steroids have so much nuts, egg yolks, melon seeds, and other ingredients in it that there's hardly any lotus paste. Me and my husband are weird Chinese. When we eat mooncakes, we both like just plain lotus paste. A few melon seeds in it is OK. People who don't know us that well gift us with four-yolk mooncakes - they would be horrified to know that we dig out the expensive yolks because we don't like them.

Black girl from the bay area and I grew up eating a few of these. Mostly the candy!!! Friends would get them in their lunches or teachers would pass out candy around lunar new year. Haw candy was my favorite as a kid. As an adult I eat the sweet rice crackers almost everyday. They're sooooo good. Costco carries them now so I never run out.

I had a Chinese classmate in elementary school whose family owned a restaurant. Apart from hooking it up with the food on those special days, her mom was so nice that she also hooked it up with the candy goody bags. I have pretty fond memories of those candies, including the unnamed candies that were either wrapped in strawberry-printed wrapper (but didn't taste like strawberry), or those pink swirled ones with a flavor I still can't figure out. Some kinda quasi-fruity-milky thing. Also solving the mystery of what Haw flakes are is so satisfying. They always looked like wafers to me and I wanted them to be light and crispy, but instead they were like fruity sticky chips. I loved them. Lastly, all Asians should hopefully know, it ain't childhood without some form of jelly in your house. That shit straight from the fridge was divine. I have that exact tub of lychee jelly in my kitchen right now. The old jelly container has been holding my brown sugar for the last 3 years. No beating it.

Yep, I like how Jimmy referred to a mooncake as a meal. It won't have all the nutrients in a balanced meal, but it has the calories of one! A snack portion is only 1/4 of the cake. But I've seen mini bite-size cakes that are about 1/4 of a normal one too. There was one I grew up with that also had the rice paper that you could eat, but it looked like a small rectangle of caramel and nuts. Maybe they have them in different shapes now, since I have not seen it in years. EDIT: I think it was jujube with walnuts candy

One of the weirdest foodsfrom China I have ever had is called "Wei Long Latio." A spicy, chewy gluten stick.

@Thảo Bùi Lol, to be honest, it was pretty hard for me. It was like eating spicy, greasy rubber. Like usually when I eat a food, I can tell, "hey, that is some kind of a rice or bread thing" or "Oh that tastes like cream" or maybe "smoky pork flavor, nice!" But with this stuff, I couldn't recognize anything except spicy and greasy. Is the gluten from rice? Kind of like mochi rice in Japan?

Oh thats a staple, thanks for bring it up! Nostalgic stuff for Chinese kids cause it was often sold in stores near elementary schools (and also cheap so kids could afford it). It’s quite greasy so I see why you think it’s weird XD but yeah! I personally love it for the sweet and spicy flavour, apparently lots of Chinese do too

Growing up I love eating the rice crackers, especially because they have a set of stickers (of the little diaper-wearing boy) inside the package. Good times. Also: forgot the funeral lychee candy. You know, the ones you seem to only can find in funerals but never in grocery stores
