Three Big Cannons is a famous traditional snack in Sichuan, mainly made of glutinous rice. During the production process, the three sticky riceballs bounce off the kneading board with sounds of "Dang, Dang, Dang" like “iron cannon”, “fire cannon” and “gun cannon”, hence the name "Three Big Cannons".

It will have a unique flavor if you drink a cup of “Laoyin Tea” when eating it. Three Big Cannons are sweet and soft, but not greasy or sticky - and also attractive in price. The main ingredients of the Three Big Cannons are glutinous rice, brown sugar, sesame, and soybeans, which have a sweet taste. The Three Big Cannons are not served cold; the semi-finished glutinous rice cake will be put into the pot and heated on the stove to keep warm, and freshly-prepared as ordered.
