Qiaoguo (Fried Thin Pastes) is in different shapes with the materials mostly being oil, flour, sugar and honey. Generally Qiaoguo are made into a fusiform shape and deep-fried into a golden color. The deft hands will nip them into all shapes related to the legend of the Festival. The melons and fruits used on the day are usually carved into the shapes of flowers and birds, or carved with patterns in relief on the melon peel, which are therefore called "carved melons".
