端午节 duan1wu3jie2 (Dragon Boat Festival)
棕子zòngzi (modern style) for 端午节 duānwǔjié
水晶粽 shuǐjīngzòng (trad. triangular shaped mass of sticky rice wrapped in bamboo leaves)
This is a modern version: 糯米 nuòmǐ (sticky rice); 淀粉 diànfěn (starch), 白砂糖 báishātáng (white sugar), 麦芽糖 màiyátáng (wheatgerm sugar), 精制大豆油 jīngzhìdàdòuyóu (refined soybean oil), 萝卜丁 luóbodīng (radish), 等等 deng deng wrapped in plastic - said to suit the modern lifestyle. I was told that foreigners are more likely to appreciate this version.
