People all say Tanghulu tastes acid,
sweetness comes from that  flavor though.

Tanghulu,a sugar-coated fruit on the stick which is a kind of children`s favorite food in winter.
For fun.
Coming as I did from a family with no income at all,and with no prospects whatever,college was the narrow door that led darkness into light.

People may say candied hawthorns taste acid, but surely you can taste the sweatness from the acidness.


People may pick on the acid taste of candied hawthorns ,
But the sweat taste is hidden in the acidness.



People may dislike the acid taste of candied hawthorns ,
But that's where sweat taste comes from.

Well, I suppose everyone knows what tanghulu or candied hawthorns are except for me. In case I'm not the only one who is unfamiliar with it, here's what Wikipedia says about it:
The fruits of the species Crataegus pinnatifida (Chinese Hawthorn), which are tart, bright red, and resemble small crabapple fruits, are used to make many kinds of Chinese snacks, including haw flakes and tánghúlú (糖葫芦, literally "sugar gourd", consisting of candied hawthorn fruits on bamboo skewers). This latter food is popular with children in northern China, where it is a traditional winter snack. The fruits, which are called shānzhā (山楂) in Chinese, are also used to produce jams, jellies, juices, alcoholic beverages, and other drinks.
What a terrifically cool treat!

The sharp tangy quality in food is called acidity.

That's an interesting statement, actually. Usually, it's the other way around: the sweetness (from sugar) of Pepsi or Coke mask or hide the acidity in the soft drink.
