From IFeng:

According to a report from Xinhua made on  December 25, this is another year of yellow  chrysanthemums and and fat crabs, and at Xinjiekou station on Nanjing’s metro, a machine selling the latter has appeared. From the first of October until now, local sentiment has gone from novelty, to suspicion, to the beginnings of acceptance, to welcome; the amount sold has gone from one a day to around two hundred.

This reporter saw that the machine at Xinjiekou station contained five rows of crabs, with different sizes being sold for 10RMB, 15RMB, 25RMB, and 50RMB. At the bottom of the machine there were even bottles of crab vinegar, being sold for 5RMB each. A lot of people couldn’t help stopping for a look, some even whipping out their cameras and taking photos. Nanjinger Cai Qun fed 200RMB into the machine, pressed the number corresponding to the crabs she wanted, and bought eight of the 25RMB size. She said: "Two days ago, I was passing by, and saw that they were cheaper than the markets. I was curious so I got two. They tasted alright, so I’m back today for more."
