Is It Art? Is It Food? It’s Caramel Dragon Lollipop

Statutory Warning: Walyou should not be held responsible if you cheat on your diet and pile on the calories after watching the Caramel Dragon Lollipop (or as we like to call it, food porn) video.

Unless you are blessed with a fast metabolism, chances are you stay (or at least try to) away from lip-smackingly delicious candy or any form of dessert. However, it is impossible not to be tempted by the Caramel Dragon Lollipop, which pretty much pawns all other lollipops out there and sends you in a virtual food coma instantaneously.

Now, that we are done (okay, almost done) salivating, lets talk abut this beautiful sugar-on-a-stick creation, which effortlessly seems to bridge the gap between art and food. Created by a street vendor (and a street artist in his own right) in China, the lollipop is an intricate mesh of caramel and sugar, that not only is supposed to satiate the tastes buds, but also tries to appease the visual senses.

The Chinese street vendor’s caramel dragon lollipop is not just another piece of candy, but a piece of art as well. This kind of art form interestingly is not just a one off and is quite popular in China. Candy always tastes great, but seldom does it provide an almost multi-sensory experience, like the Caramel Dragon Lollipop does.

So if you have a sweet tooth, or just appreciate unique art forms, then watch the video to see how the vendor paints an intricate layer of caramel with a ladle, and then proceeds to mount it on a stick before giving it to an excited (and lucky) child.
