Friday’s Featured Food: Chinese sweet coloured rice! Bought at Jiulong Waterfalls, Yunnan Province.

Today’s Friday’s Featured Food comes from China once again. We know how much the Asians love their rice, but how about some special coloured rice with sugar added to it? Throw in a walk to some gorgeous waterfalls called Jiulong, near Luoping in the Yunnan Province and you’re sorted. Here’s a bit about Chinese sweet coloured rice.

Where can you buy Chinese sweet coloured rice?

Yunnan Province is one part of China that this exists in. If you see it, buy it and try it as it may be a long time before you find the same type of food again. I tried it the very first time I seen it, that was only a few weeks ago while visiting the Jiulong Waterfalls near Luoping in China’s Yunnan Province.

What does Chinese sweet coloured rice taste like?

I have to say I loved it and scoffed it quickly. Rice itself is very flavourless to me, but the added sugar made it tasty and sweet. I’m not sure what e-numbers are in it, as they need to get the colours from somewhere but the taste was great! Really worth trying. The colours of the rice were turquoise, pink, yellow and purple.
