Baoji - Street artists who double as candy makers have turned sugar-on-a-stick into an art form as they create intricate designs from Chinese culture and turn the exquisite work into lollipop art.
The Asian artist seen in the video uses melted caramel poured from a dipper to make the popular lollipops to the delight of children and adults alike who pay under a dollar for the candy treat.
A video of the artist at work was posted to YouTube where it has received 266,069 hits and over 2000 likes and continues to trend on the website.
A separate video posted by Chanticlere explains: "This art is starting to become rare, even in China. This is a children's game where you spin a wheel and get whatever pops up on wheel. Instead of spinning, I chose the one I thought would be most interesting to make. The process is very interesting to watch. The people of China are very talented."
Christine180298 said the wheel contains pictures of the animals depicted in the twelve signs of the Chinese zodiac.
Once the design is complete the artist adds a stick to create the lollipop and sells the finished product to onlookers for 3 to 5 kuai (fifty to eighty cents).
