Dragon's Beard is a whimsical candy that was once made for the great Emperors of China--some say predominantly during the Han Dynasty. These silky white strands resemble the long white strands of a dragon's beard--hence the name. The silk strands are spun and filled with nuts, coconut and sesame seeds. It truly takes a master to perfect this art and Montreal's Johnny Chin has been perfecting this "Chinese Cotton Candy" treat for over 20 years.
