    I have to confess, i kinda thought the candymaking equippment they use was sort of for nostalgia effect... i didn't realize HOW MUCH TIME those really save them these days.

    the camera is at a really annoying and frustrating angle, I rather see it from a higher vantage point and then pointed down

    I first watched this video probably 4 years ago and coming back now I realized how much his voice and his all around persona reminds me of Thomas Sanders. He’s so sweet (har har) and obviously very good at his job. I’m glad I can come back and watch these videos again just to hear him talk about the process haha

    I wonder if you could manufacturer some kind thick gloves that would keep the heat away idk It would have thicker parts of heat resistant material were your hand is touching like on the surface it would be so thick about 3 inches but the parts that would need to flex would have to have less to its easy to menuver

    I feel like the bit of blue that made it into the white also can help it become white bc blue offsets yellow-orange. Maybe? Idk. Might help it reach white faster
