SHAXIAN, Nov. 26(Xinhua) -- Noodles boiled in bone soup served with peanut butter, and wontons filled with juicy meat in a sizzling soup -- these are the Shaxian delicacies that have swept across the streets of China. Shaxian delicacies, originated in Shaxian County in Fujian Province, have become well-known in China over the past few decades. At present, apart from the application of automatic machines, semi-finished products are also distributed from the supply chain. Now over 88,000 stores with the name Shaxian Snacks are open across China, with annual turnover reaching nearly 50 billion yuan (about 7.6 billion U.S. dollars).
