After a old-fashioned sweets-filled upbringing on a farm in Taichung County's Fengyuan, a pair of siblings decided to open up a candy shop to share their sweet talent with city dwellers. Johnson Fu and Ms. Fu, a brother-and-sister team, create nostalgic treats with fresh taro and other natural ingredients. All of their sweets are handmade without chemical additives and are cooked right in the store on a daily basis. Their creations include flavors like taro jelly, bean jelly, grass jelly, and several different teas (NT$30-50). The siblings recommend their grass jelly drink, which has a very smooth texture. --By Josie Wu, translated by Ann Lee
