CHONGQING (CQNEWS) -- The big Zongzi, 2.2 meters high and weighing 450 kg, occurred in a scenic area in Chongqing. Visitors ate up the “King of Zongzi” in 4 hours.
Six people pushed the “King of Zongzi” on the street of Mexin Wine Town in Fuling District and distributed it to visitors for free.
This Zongzi is 2.2 meters high, 1 meter in diameter and weighs up to 450 kg. Eight persons from the Employment and Poverty Alleviation Office of Mexin Wine Town spent four days to make it. The ingredients of this Zongzi include 300 kg of glutinous rice, 25 kg of peanuts, 12.5 kg of ormosia, 10 kg of mung beans, 2.5 kg of oyster sauce and 2.5 kg of soy sauce.
The Zongzi is a whole piece, so it shall be distributed with spoons little by little. How does the Zongzi taste? Visitors said that it was sweet and salty. There is little difference between small Zongzi on the market and this big Zongzi. However, they felt happy to eat it with other visitors.
“I have never seen such big Zongzi, and it is so delicious,” Mr. Liu said, “The scenic spot held a variety of Dragon Boat Festival activities, which lets everyone understand the customs of the Dragon Boat Festival. It is a good way to understand the traditional festival.” (Translated by Mao Qiao, Fathom Language Limited)
