We just grabbed our customary mint on our way out of the Asian Bistro by our house but when we opened it, it wasn't a mint and the wrapper was almost all in Chinese (I think). It was an Asian bistro, but most of the food was Chinese, so I'm guessing that it's Chinese.

So the candy was green and definitely fruit flavored, but didn't taste like anything discernable. The fruit on the picture kind of looks like a pear, but not really any of our western pears. (Sorry for the fuzzy image, my phone would not focus and the wrapper was so small, so small)

Hold the camera back from the wrapper farther and it will probably focus just fine. –  Flimzy Oct 16 '11 at 21:17

I think if you'd gotten a clear picture, Google's search by image would probably have found it for you. –  Jefromi Oct 17 '11 at 4:57

Just curious: you guys seem to think this question doesn't belong here; where should OP have asked instead? –  Tootsie Rolls Jun 12 '13 at 2:12

That is Classic Series Guava Candy made by HongYuan. You can buy a 14oz bag on Amazon, here.
