Na­tional trea­sure to be­come dessert

Changjiang Weekly - - CULTURE - By Su Jun

How would you like to take a bite out of a sword said to be­long to Gou­jian, a king of Yue more than 2,500 years ago? Th si is part of th e cross-in­dus­try ini­tia­tive by Hubei Pro­vin­cial Mu­seum, Hubei Uni­ver­sity of Tech­nol­ogy, and Kengee Bak­ery.

The ini­tia­tive has put for­ward three desserts in­spired by the Sword of Gou­jian. One of them is a bar of choco­late with its pack­ag­ing fea­tur­ing el­e­ments of lo­cal land­marks as well as hand-drawn il­lus­tra­tions. Con­sumers are en­cour­aged to do "trea­sure h unt" and spot the seven car­toon fig­ures of Gou­jian hid­den in the com­plex maze of il­lus­tra­tions.

Ac­cord­ing to Kengee Bak­ery, the dessert will be mass-pro­duced in two or three months so con­sumers can have a de­li­cious en­counter with Hubei's na­tional trea­sures.
