The ones in this picture, taken yesterday, are from Xiong Xian County in Hebei Province, near the city of Baotou.
They are used to make a number of deserts and snacks. In Northern China they are often sold dipped in a sugar candy coating on a wooden skewer much like toffee apples are in Europe and are called 糖葫芦 (tanghulu).
