Tanghulu (or Bing Tanghulu, 糖葫芦)
Tanghulu, also called Bing Tanghulu, is candied haw on a stick and is a traditional winter snack in northern China, particularly for children. Every year, as the weather cools down, tanghulu sales start heating up at every street corner of the city. About 20-30 centimeters long, bright red or yellow in color with a sweet-and-sour taste, Tanghulu are a much-loved traditional winter snack in the capital city and in most northern cities in China.
Tanghulu typically has a hardened sugar coating that comes from dipping the skewer in sugar syrup. Traditionally, the fruit used has been Chinese hawthorn, but in recent times vendors have also used mandarin oranges, strawberries, blueberries, pineapples, kiwifruit, bananas or grapes, creating a Tanghulu that resemble fruit kebabs.
