In Northeast China’s bitter winter, almost all kinds of food can be frozen, such as local snacks - bingtanghulu (sugar-coated hawthrons), fruits, bean curd, etc.

Meanwhile, some people believe only hot food, such as doubao (a sticky steamed bun stuffed with sweetened bean paste), roasted sweet potato and corn, can warm them up in the extremely cold days.

In the fierce competition between the two kinds of snacks, which one do you prefer?

Malt sugar for kitchen god. According to Chinese fairy tales, people smear malt sugar on the lips of the Kitchen God, one of the traveling deities, to ensure that he either submits a favorable report to the Jade Emperor or keeps silent. [Photo by Cailian News/ for chinadaily.com.cn]
