Chinese candy must-haves?

My boyfriend is currently on a business trip to China. As a lover of all things sweet and a burgeoning chocolatier/confectioner, I'm always up for trying new candies, so I thought I'd ask him to bring home some treats if he gets a chance.

Is there anything I should definitely ask him to look for? Anything to avoid? Anything that will lead to a customs debacle?
