If you walk around the Wangfujing Food Street, you will see brightly colored red fruits on sticks. These are sugar-coated haws, or Bingtang Hulu in Chinese.

 

Sugar-coated haw is a traditional snack of Beijing. As a local, I used to see peddlers selling sugar-coated haws on streets and lanes. So a stick of sugar-coated haws is not only a treat for my taste bud but also a treasure of the past.

 

The venders make the haws on the spot, so you can see the whole process yourself. They stick nine haw fruits onto a stick, bath them in sugar syrup, and then leave the syrup to harden into a shiny coating. When it cools off, the sugar coat becomes crispy, transparent and golden yellow.

 

A stick of sugar-coated haws only costs RMB 4. In addition, you can choose sugar-coated strawberries, orange, and pineapple, priced at RMB 8. Give this sour and sweet snack a try! I hope you like it.
