    Wow! I didn't realise it takes so long and requires so much effort to make a candy. I thought it was all machines and buckets of sugar. This is nice like Willy Wonka

    2:10 I'm intrigued by the multi-colored lollies to the viewer's left on the screen. Looks like yellow, green, red, orange, and white. That may be the most color stripes I've seen on a Lofty Pursuits video. I suppose it is too much to hope that they represent a rainbow of flavors as well? Say, lemon/lime/orange/raspberry?

    I like you guys because I don't have to even try your candy to know it's good. You guys care enough about your customers that you make these videos and let people watch you make the candy and it's all done by hand.

    Important question: How do you keep the pots you cook sugar in from getting all crusty? Is it just a constant rotation of heating sugar in it so you don't even need to wash it? Or do you just soak it in something to get all the sugar to crust off? Thanks.

    Don't we have machines to do this stuff by now? It's an easy process and very few ingredients. It looks tedious making it by hand.

  • Tina M Fam

    who is the dummy touching the candy with out a heat glove hahaha Also why don't they shove the stick in while it's in the actual form so it doesn't mishape it as much

      Clearly you have a lot of experience in candy making with your insults. The candy is about 120 at that point in the process. Gloves are not needed once you build heat tolerance If it were hotter than that igneous go flat under its own weight. It will actually distort more of you push it in when it's in the form.

  • Lord Of Sandvich
    Lord Of Sandvich Year ago +6

    I wonder... Does any candy actually use one of the mistakes you mention as part of the recipe? Like a sticky candy that has water left over from the dye or maybe a specific taste from adding citric acid to a candy too early?
    Iโ€™d imagine thereโ€™s a reason I havenโ€™t seen anything like that, but Iโ€™m still curious.
