Difference between sweet and salty rice dumpling

Due to differences between the north and south, in terms of taste, the north is mainly sweet, while the south is mainly salty. Rice dumpling has a variety of fillings. In addition to five kernels, bean paste fruit, coarse grains, meat and other tastes, although the majority of rice dumpling fillings do not affect people's love of rice dumpling, after all, everyone has their own favorite taste. However, as a southerner, I prefer sweet rice dumpling. The salty and sweet tastes are different, but they have the same meaning. Eating rice dumpling during the Yuanxiao (Filled round balls made of glutinous rice-flour for Lantern Festival) means family reunion. It expresses people's yearning and expectation for life, so rice dumpling has become an essential food for the Yuanxiao (Filled round balls made of glutinous rice-flour for Lantern Festival).
