I returned to Pacific Mall again last weekend in search for some Chinese dragon beard candy. Unfortunately the guy that normally makes it was not selling any that weekend (he wasn't there). I didn't want to leave empty handed because we had drove 25 minutes out of our way to get there, and ended up circling around the BUSY mall for an hour looking for parking.
Let me tell you, they are not the tastiest little buggers. They don't taste awful, but there's nothing special about them. They are crunchy like chips, but as soon as you start chewing on the crab shells, they become gritty in texture. The gritty bits end up sticking to your teeth because of the sugar coating. The little balls that cover the crabs seemed to be tiny little crunchy rice balls.
To get an idea of how mini they were, I took a photo of three different sized crabs beside a Canadian Toonie ($2 coin), an American quarter, and a Canadian dime.
There must have been something added to them to make them addictive because although the crabs didn't taste all that great, I found myself reaching in the bag for another, and another...
