Watch: We Tried One-of-a-Kind Chinese Snacks


We Tried is a series where RADII staff try out unique foods, experiences, and phenomena in China. Drop us a line if you have a suggestion.

Ever had shrink-wrapped quail eggs? How about Spicy Chicken Oreos?

In this series debut, RADII staff Ying Li and Adan Kohnhorst go toe-to-toe in a Chinese snack taste-off. In one corner, Ying, who has been eating these snacks her whole life. In the other, Adan, who has no idea what is going on.

One thing’s for sure: it’s a bona fide clash of cultures as these two open their minds and palettes to a world of taste sensations.

RADII (rā'dē-ī') is an independent platform of artists, writers and creators dedicated to sharing vibrant stories from the rarely explored sides of new China.
