In the early
1900's, an asian immigrant by the name of Yee Sheong brought dried
preserved plums from mainland China while traveling to the islands
of Hawaii which became the local snack favorite of generations to
follow. The name "Li Hing" means "traveling"
while "Mui" means "plum", hence the name "Li
Hing Mui" to describe the tasty treat from the Orient. The original name was created by "Yick Lung Co." back in 1900!
