Haw Flakes

Chinese hawthorn yields a large fruit similar to an apple, and its flesh is made into several sweetened products, including fruit leather, biscuits, ice cream, candied haw "apples" on a stick, and compressed discs of haw fruit, or haw flakes. They are kind of like a candy, with a unique taste that I like. Hawthorn has medicinal qualities, especially for the heart, though I can't see these candies having much nutritional value.
