Zodiac Balloons

A unique sight (at least I've never seen it anywhere else) on Jingli, the main tourist street in Chengdu, was the balloon animals--a small, inexpensive treat for the children.
The vendor inflated the sugary substance with a straw and molded it into on of the twelve Chinese zodiac. He probably would take requests for other animals for the right price, and I wouldn't be surprised if he made the Fuwa during the Olympics.

I believe the animals are edible, but I have no idea if they taste good.
