    You sponsor a marching band?! Just when I thought I couldn't enjoy your videos anymore than I already do.... I'm glad I just placed an order last week.

      Actually I wanted lofty Pursuits to have its own marching band. So I organized a marching band that I guess I sponsor. I started by buying instruments and then I found musicians. It was sort of a if you build it they will come type of project. The instruments came three years before I got the marching band together. We started with about six people. we now have a group of over 60 who have never had more than about 40 perform at a time. It's a great way to advertise on to support the community and to make fun.

    You should do a video that is full length no cuts “the full process of candy making” starting with boiling/melting the candy

      I agree, I'd be too busy trying to sneak candy to work. Like seriously, how do they not just eat it? I'd really be bad in that occupation 😂

    Here we call them literally "little logs". Japanese also make them, but I haven't been able to find the name in japanese either.

    Best looking candies yet?

  • The Crafty Cyborg

    I think this is probably one of your best batches yet. The image is so crisp, clear, and precise in every piece. I know it’s a simpler design, but sometimes, the simple things are the most beautiful.

      "Our normal ship time is about 2 weeks to ship your order but it seems a candy video of ours has gone viral. Depending on the numbers of orders we get, orders could be set us back weeks for shipping, so we can't give you an accurate ship time right now. "

    I can never get enough of these videos. They are just amazing, and relaxing. I usually watch a candy making video when i'm board, or if I just want to. :) I remember back when this channel only had 100k and when you got the silver plaque. I can't wait to see what other kinds of candy videos you make.

    Do you use any math when making the individual components of the candy, like the outside wraps and things? Or do you just shape pieces until they look right and make it work? Thanks!
