Tanghulu literally translated means Candied Haw on a Stick (bīngtáng húlu 冰糖葫芦). Tanghulu is a traditional winter snack in northern China, especially in Beijing. Traditionally, tanghulu has a hardened sugar coating that comes from dipping the skewer in sugar. There are less common varieties with a chocolate coating or sesame sprinkles. Traditionally, tanghulu uses the Chinese hawthorn fruit (山楂 shānzhā), but other fruit can be used, such as apples, kiwi, strawberries, etc.
