He got the fruits from the shop at 上海老街, washed and prepared them in skewers after which he dips in a sinful pot of sugar syrup and left them to solidify until the fruits are encrusted in a thick sugar coating.
Going for only 2 yuan per skewer, the 冰糖葫芦 may not be the best snack in town but the idea of holding and eating one, is a happy one. They look happy too.
Once again, 新年快乐!
and happy holidays!
