This brightly lit street full of shops is located near Tiananmen Square. My student guides made sure that I saw this and immediately took me to Beijing Favorite Foods.
The shop turned out to stock a wide variety of candies packed in small, Halloween-style packages. Many were dried fruits; others were cookies or other treats.
They also stocked a good supply of duck. The duck seems to play the role in China played by the pig here in Georgia---happy to be of service.
I left with a bag chock-full of treats for my trip home.
