Tok tok rock candy

Still on Malacca.

If you happen to hear some "tong tong tong" sound from afar, you'll know that the tok tok candy cart is somewhere around the corner.

My grandma told me that this is one of the classic candy and was really popular in the 1940s. It takes a lot of strength to hit that rocky block of sugar, so if you happen to see one, please buy a packet from the girl. I feel so sorry for her because at such young age, she could have go out and have fun with her friends but yet, she's spending her time making a living out of selling rock candy.

The candy is really hard. Do not attempt to bite it with your teeth. It taste like peanut and I believe it has peanut base. If you're allergy to nuts, avoid it.
