Looking for Dragon beard candy and dough figurines in the SGV
THere used to be fellows with little carts - in front of a ding ho market in Alhambra, in the courtyard at the Empress Pavilion complex in Chinatown. One would make the Dragon Beard Candy with spun sugar and peanuts, the other (they weren't there together) would make little dough figurines, a parrot, a panda, etc.
Has anyone seen these or similar sellers in the SGV or in CHinatown by any chance?

oh wow! i didn't even know they had these in alhambra. it's been years since i've seen dragon beard candy. i hope someone answers this post!
I had the long so tong in china and they were good. Haven't had any fresh ones here. When I was in SF everyone was selling the package kind from Macau. They had some funky flavors and kinda expensive...Let me know if anyone else know of any fresh ones around here.
every once in a long while, i will see it at the focus plaza 99 ranch. there will be an old man with a cart just inside by the fruits and veggie section where they keep the other special carts (ladies selling mochi covered in peanut powder or the fish shaped buns filled with red bean).
try visiting near a big chinese holiday. i seem to remember the last time i saw it was during chinese new year.
