Sugar-coated Haws, or Bing Tang Hu Lu in Chinese, is a popular traditional snack of Beijing. It is made by first putting cleaned haws (usually five) on a prod, then dip it into syrup stewed by crystal sugar and water, and finally taken out and dried. The bright, lovely haws on the prod look like a string of small red lanterns, with a sweet and sour taste. The outer layer of sugar is crisp, but the haws are soft. Although traditionally this snack only uses haws, nowadays they also have sugar-coated yam, chufa, grape, orange, and walnut kernel. But Sugar-coated Haws is the most authentic, and helps digestion while rich in Vitamin C and E.

 

In old days, you can buy Sugar-Coated Haws from street peddlers everywhere. Times have changed, and you need to visit a shop now for it. One such place is the center of the 1st floor of Xidan Shopping Center, which specializes in local specialties. You can find a stall here displaying many Sugar-coated Haws stuck in a log, looking like a small tree. A stick of Sugar-coated Haws only costs RMB 3, and popular with locals and tourists alike.
