Machine Made, Mass Produced Goodies

Homemade chinese new year are goodies that are baked with by, at home and without much machinery. In the past, almost all new year cookies were baked by hand. With the invention of new technology, many bakeries turned to automation and machinery to increase the volume of their production. This led to a huge drop in the quality and taste of Chinese New Year Goodies as huge amounts of goodies were manufactured in assembly lines without much concern for the taste. The good thing about this is that the prices of many goodies went down due to the lower cost of mass producing these goodies.

The problem with machine made Chinese New Year goodies was that these goodies soon had “machine-like” tastes. These goodies were mass produced in a way that produced a very bland taste. Some of the problems with mass-produced goodies include:

  • Poor Quality Ingredients Substituted for Higher Profit Margin
  • Margarine instead of Butter used
  • Artificial sweeteners and taste
  • Harmful flavouring ingredients
  • Lots of preservatives to extend shelf life
  • Some CNY Goodies stored for 2-3 Years before being sold!
  • Weight Gain and Health Problems with mass produced goodies

However, not every shop turned to mass-producing. A few bakeries still continued to bake their goodies the traditional way, by hand. As a result, they still managed to retain the quality and taste of their products. Even so, these shops still could not beat the taste of true homemade Chinese New Year goodies as many baking families had recipes passed down generation after generation which even real bakeries didn’t have access to. It wasn’t just the recipes that made a difference, the ingredients in each goodie were entirely different! Bakeries do not have time to carefully source each ingredient from the best sources that will produce the kind of unique tastes that homemade Chinese New Year Goodies had.
