Dragon Beard Candy is a sweet which dates back thousands of years to Ancient China.
The candy has to be handmade, which requires specialized skill, making its availability limited and very expensive.
Dragon beard candy is made of sugary threads densely wrapped around a sweet centre filling. It is very susceptible to moisture, just like cotton candy, and has a short shelf life.
Looks like a Silkworm cocoon doesn’t it~~
The most common filling is a combination of peanuts and sesame.
It is one of my favourite confectionery, so I do recommend trying some if you ever get the chance to!! (^-^)
Some times I wish I have friends from all different parts of the world, so we can send each others yummy food products which are exclusively available to the area.
Here is a list of some food products which I want to try, but haven’t had the chance to yet.
- Glico almond chocolate
- Angel pie (Japanese)
- Milka Chocolate – actually Milka is available in New Zealand duty-free shops, but the range is very limited.
And of course the list goes on~~~~~
Please if anyone knows of any New Zealand company which can supply any of the listed products, I would really appreciate it if you can leave me a message regarding it! (^-^)
Any help would be wonderful!!
If there is any product you would like me to review, also feel welcome to leave me a message about it!
By the way, would anyone be interested to take part in a food exchange programme?
I would really like to know your feedback, so here is a poll to help simplify the answering process~~ (^-^)
I found this on a tree in the front yard.
After asking almost everyone at work, with fruitless result (Aha! I used a pun!), I showed my mother the photos and immediately she told me it is a Camellia fruit, and unfortunately it is not for eating~~ -_-”
