Dragon Beard Candy

Hand-craft candies are difficult to find in modern times. Most people are familiar with Portuguese egg tarts, pork chop buns and crab congee in Macau. Therefore, I would like to recommend this traditional snack - Dragon Beard Candy. Luckily, there is still a dragon bread candy shop in Macau. The packaging is sophisticated and retro. It’s perfect for gifting. The shop “King of Candy - Yau Kei” hand-crafted all their dragon bread candies. It’s a snack with more than 2,000 years of history. It’s made of maltose and wheat flour. It’s soft and gentle, melts in your mouth with a slight hint of sweetness.

Dragon Beard Candy

It’s such an old technique and you can see it live at Yau Kei. The candy looks just like threads of silk. It also feels like cotton. Be careful when you are taking them out of the box because they are pretty fragile. Each piece of the candy is a thousand strings of maltose. It’s so soft and delicate.

Ice Cream Dragon Bread Candy (Tofu Flavor)

Besides the traditional flavor, Yau Kei is quite innovative. This Tofu Ice Cream Dragon Bread Candy is stuffed with house-made Ice Cream and Tofu. It’s such an interesting combination and texture. The ice cream is smooth and chilly. I recommend you to try it.
