      They have some stuff comparable to some of my stuff. I have some stuff older than they do, but the really old stuff is at Schimpffs in Indiana, or ye old candy store in Salem. We are pikers.

    Love your channel. Only advice I could give would be to use a pop shield when recording the narration. It'll filter out the popping p's and hissing s's. I'm going to your website now to order some candy!

    This is one of the few flavors I never bonded with. I'm fascinated by all of the different shaped candy rollers they have hanging up!

    I do like red hots, but schimpffs website wanted 18 dollars shipping for a small order of candy. In the age of Amazon that's a deal breaker.

    you should check out the Biedebharn Candy Co. It was the first place Coca-Cola was ever bottled. Located in Vicksburg, Mississippi.

    Amazing how both of you candy makers have respect for each other because you are in the same business. you're not like Wonka or Slugworth lol. Because how amazing your candy looks and you included their candy store too. I will be doing some online ordering from both candy stores in the near future.

      I'm not sure what country you live in, but the price is for either the first kg or 1/2 kg. If you get more bags if candy the shipping will stay roughly the same.

    Why is watching candy being made so intoxicating?

  • Cam Good
    Cam Good 7 months ago

    Is that why they're called drops? I never thought about it, but it makes sense (I imagine that the same is true for gumdrops, since they are probably made with a similar machine.).

    Schimpffs' red hots are the best in the world, bar none. No Easter or Christmas in Kentuckiana would be complete without a bag or twelve of those wonderful red hots. Buyer beware though, they are RED HOT! Folding the flavor in on the table means each red hot is a whole new experience. Will this one be a mildly cinnamony sugar sweet, or a flaming ball of pain so hot it literally makes your ears pop (No joking, that has happened to me while eating one of these). So glad I live in Southern Indiana so I can go grab a bag of these to enjoy/torture myself with whenever I want!

    Ring of fire for sure. I made a tiny batch of cinnamon hard candy once and I ran everyone out of the house with the cinnamon oil. LOL! Good news though, it tasted great. :)

    • Lofty Pursuits
      Lofty Pursuits  Year ago +1

      +laserfloyd yes, and his oil is about 100 times as strong as what you get in the super market. One pint of what we use can flavor 2500lbs of sugar. Imagine what it's like in our shop. :)

    What kind-hearted and uplifting respect you have for a competitor. Well done.

    I hope you come and find a taffy shop in Utah. Salt Lake City used to be known for its salt water taffy. My aunts who have moved away insist you can't find taffy as good anywhere else. I don't know if anyone still makes it in a historically accurate manner. And after watching your video I'm not sure Utah salt water taffy can hold a candle to Roman Chewing Candy.

      +kirby7979 agreed, but the candy still needs to be a little warm. Sometimes we can, and sometimes it's cooled too much.

    I went to this place as a teenager while visiting family. I've wanted to go back ever since but I had forgotten the name of the store until I came across this video, so thank you! I visited around Thanksgiving that particular year and watched them make cherry-flavored ribbon candy. That ribbon candy is still the best candy I've ever tasted!
