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?
