Q: What's the deal on those giant rice crispie-type cakes that the Uighur sell?

I'm sure it isn't rice crispie, but it looks like it. It's also covered in dried fruit and nuts. Anyone tried it, any good? I'm too scared to find out for myself.

  They're not bad. Kind of thing you eat for a minute, then spend the next five picking your teeth. PS: What the Hell's an Uighur? Aren't they those big buggers out of Lord of the Rings?

Almost like the infamous fruitcake, but tastes better in my opinion.  It's chewy as hell and like Martian wrote, it sticks in your teeth like crazy, but I rather like it.

You mean "shaqima- 沙奇马“?

Yeah they are ok, but mostly are deep fried.  Not really a better substitute to good old rice crispy squares.  I'd enjoy a nice rice crispy square right now (but I can't).

Afraid to try, come on you're in China just buy one (they're really cheap) and take a bite. If you don't like it just bin it or give it to a homeless person!

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
