Sweet potato snack

I went into the "corner store" across the road and looked for a snack that wasn't too junky and came across this interesting treat.

Sculpted out of larger sweet potatoes to look like baby ones, and then rolled in a combination of sugar and bean paste to make them look real. They're of course inferior in flavour and texture to real sweet potatoes, but the only way to get those is to buy and cook them yourself, or to buy the overcooked ones on the street.

Definitely consider buying again. I think they cost around 8 RMB.
