Ginger Chews

I bought these wonderful ginger chews, made by a company in California who call themselves The Ginger People, they make several products with ginger in them, including crystallized ginger made from Australian baby ginger and cane sugar in ready-cut sizes for easy incorporation into baked goods. These ginger chews are sweet and spicy hot, the recipe for these comes from Southeast Asia. They recommend too, trying the ginger tea you can make just by pouring hot water over a couple of the candies and stirring, but I think it loses its hotness this way. I find the cartoon on their packaging funny as well, the anthropomorphized ginger-person eating its own kind in candy format is ludicrous in a way! These seem to be more available in specialty food stores than in supermarkets.
