Top Snacks to try in Beijing
Caramel smothered hawthorn/apples
This is a really simple yet tasty typical Beijing snack. You can have a variety of small apples, hawthorn fruit, mandarin oranges, strawberries depending on which fruits are in season. They are laid out on a stick (like a kebab) and then covered in liquid caramel for that sweet kick that you might be craving. Beijingers have been enjoying this snack for years; you can usually buy it from most street corners and on average only sells for 5-6 Yuan. It is the combination of the sweetness from the caramel and the tangy but faint sourness of the fruit that make this snack such a favorite with the locals.
