In Chinese,they're called 'Chaohuo'.well,we always eat them in autumn and winter.
They're not seasonal,we can get them in supermarkets all year round.But actually,they are more frequently consumed in autumn and winter,coz it's said taking a regular amount of them does good to our body especially in cold days....yet i don't like them much....

yeah, they are supposedly illegal, but there are so many of them and they are too swift for the police, that they never go away.


i don't really think they should try to get rid of them.  in doing so you will have more unskilled people that want welfare of some sort from the government.  at least now they earn their money.

if they want to clean up china then they should start by removing people that don't provide any service whatsoever, like the many loiters all around public places just preying on people, mostly foreigners.
