I do not know the name of this. We often referred to it as “that sweet, soft thing with sesame seeds.” It has two varieties. One is the plain sweet one and the other has a stub of grounded peanuts in the middle.
This is made from molasses and some gelatin I think. If I am not mistaken, it is non-halal.
It is way, way too sweet and may even gives you a toothache! However, once in a while, it is nice to eat because I love the sesame seeds covering it. And the molasses (bah leh ko) has a nice caramel taste to it. The texture is unique on its own. I can’t think of anything with similar texture. Soft, pliable like gummy bears. Only better.
