I would help with the whole process if I knew what the Frick I was doing
5:55 - 5:57 rekt
1848 + 150 = 1988??????????
Can't wait to try these! I Ordered some a couple days ago
I was mistaken
The level of care and craft that goes into this reminds me of Japanese soba making. We're in danger of losing the skills and equipment to make things like this.
I find printing ACID on candies distasteful
The rollers were made in about 1890 and the type of candy are called acid drops because that's what makes sour, sour.
this candy is very yummy, but not all that sour to me. maybe im too used to modern sour candy? nice video though 💕
Oh man. I need a video of you just cooling, rolling and breaking candy. That’s it. I’d be relaxed in SECONDS!
5:50 Poor kid ended up with no candy. ;_;
I just gave in and ordered a bag of these 🍬
I love it when the background music is a live recording. it makes it really hard not to picture a live band in the candy shop. 🤔 You know, I'm not entirely sure there _isn't_ a stage in that candy shop.
My mouth was watering this whole video😛
This was always my favourite flavour when I was a little girl. Clear, see through acid drop spangles, loved them. X
So this is what it's like to drop acid
God that would be a dream job for me lol
I wonder if they would be willing to do a batch of just lemon and if so how much would they charge me for tge entire batch?
Ooh, could I volunteer to stand at the table and drop and mix all the candies? That's the most satisfying part!
Had a acid drop candy as a science experiment in school. We put it in our mouth and taste it. Some say it is sour some say they don’t. Then we mixed them in baking soda, then we put it in our mouth and it had a foul taste and was very salty.
How about clear on top and white underneath
This makes my mouth water just thinking about the BlackBerry acid drops!
So amazing to watch, i won’t have any teeth. Every time i watch a video,i want to order mor candy🤦🏾♀️🍬🍭
Would be cool if you would make a sour candy with malic acid in it (most sour substance in the world) and call them Mega Acid Drops. it would fit right in since there's already an M on the drop mold.
I don't know how you keep the ants out of a business like that.
Oooh I really need to get the blackberry ones
That M stands for molly
Some frank Sinatra in the background very nice I see you have good taste (for those who want the song it frank Sinatra L.O.V.E)
My niece and nephew gave up creepy kids TVclip videos for an hour to watch you make candy. Thank you for saving me and their mom lol.
Little did they know, a century later their favorite candy would take on a whole new context.
Why don't you make super long strips more candy in less time
I salivated the whole time
now put some acid on em
I've always wondered, what happens to the little bits that you sift out? Do you use it as ice cream topping?
I think in one video they said they use it for their sugar cookies????? I might of heard it wrong tho
"the heat will take out the wuter."
Can you try to make a pig candy
Am I the only one that found the satisfying
Ahh i love how you have clarinet in the background music a lot. It’s my favorite instrument, since i play the beautiful thing :)
lol acid pops from Harry Potter
Can you make more videos about the stuff you have in your store that is not candy
I love dropping acid.
What’s the songs name in the background
We.....we droppin acid bru?
You understand that you could sell those to drug addicts for the price of a video game if you're gonna print the word "acid" on it, right?
Dam i thought it was LSD acid😓😓
I just love seeing old soda shops back up and running down States I wasn't born in the 1950s or 60s I was born 81 but seeing how my parents had fun back then its history and I love history.
I would love to try these!! I love sour candies!!!
You know, you don't have to hunt for these ancient machines. You can have reproductions made.
Lofty Pursuits you could get a local machine shop to come in and talk measurements of the equipment to reverse engineer to machines to make duplicates and the rollers could be 3d and machined out with a 5-axis CNC mill
There's a company in India that still makes these but I have no idea what the quality is but I'm sure they will work. The real question is why do you want to do this to learn. All the handwork I do is often easier than using these darn machines they're quite finicky
Well, if not having an original machine means not being able to make a certain kind of candy, then getting a replica would be wiser.
Yep, but where’s the fun in that?
Might be able to quickly cool the rollers by spraying them with alcohol. It'll quickly evaporate, leave no residue/flavor/odor, and pull that heat out to prevent sticking.
I love the old machines you use, it makes watching your videos interesting and unique unlike watching a production line
Would love to see them again in the shop, they look very tasty
3:45 im a simple man, i hear "Nat Cole King", i press like
I heard acid drops and clicked
OMFG! I LOVE sour candy. This makes my tongue tingle.
When I saw "acid drops" I was like, "DRUGS!!!"
How sour are they? What do they compare to?
These videos are so fascinating! I love the vintage equipment being used. Thank you for sharing your art☺
I have to tell you I am addicted to your videos! I love how much care you put into your creations. I also love how much respect you have for the process and the old ways of candy making. It is so refreshing to see someone who had dedicated their life to creating such a joyful thing as candy. Your collection of antique equipment and your restoration and use of it are truly incredible and something that I am so happy to see! Thank you for sharing everything that you do AND your music is the bees knees!
You seem and sound like a nice person
I love the Domino's on the wall lol
My favorite song was on at the beginning
300 degree celcius or farenheit
+CiaHao Zhang F.
Why does that song sound so familiar??
Seems therapeutic to squeeze the candies together to break them apart lol
when you say degrees do you mean c or f? i assume f as you're in america but you don't specify.
+Creb Ken F
I was hoping for some funky coloured ones transitioning between the colours.
How do you clean the rollers?
+Valandar2 soap, water. Put them in a sink of sanitizer, just like you do for dishes in a commercial kitchen. Dry completely. Oil and wax.
How come the plastic spoons bone melt when u mix the colers
+GABRIEL SILVA Because they are wood spoons.
I love seeing these videos! Im officially obsessed
Just placed an order for these on your website, I have a very big weakness for sour candies. I can not wait to try them.
Honestly who dislikes this?
I would give anything to be able to go to lofty pursuits every single day
It's on my bucket list to come here.
I really dig the song in this video.
Candy Daddy always delivers.
Wish I could try some of these candies, sadly I'm allergic to citric acid! Still great to see their making nevertheless.
Only the fruit flavors and sours get citric acid. So Root Beer, Peppermint, Nectar, coffee, the flower flavors, cinnamon and cotton candy don't. (there are a few others, but their names escape me)
I was JUST thinking.. "hmmm.. I wonder how they separate the candy pieces from the candy scraps on the sides & edges?" When he put the candy in a fry basket to shake them out. LoL What a neat & very practical & simple solution. I love these videos & they always make me wish we did a whole lot more now, like our ancestors did way back when. I ordered some of this candy & I can't wait to get it! There's just something special about knowing small batches are made with such love & care but also in knowing exactly where your candy (or anything we eat) came from & that it wasn't mass produced in a plant.
TwiTchy WiTch w
I'd love to see a filled drop, like a sherbet lemon or those goo-filled strawberry drops some day. Do you ever make anything like that?
Lofty Pursuits can't go wrong with liquor
+DaCheeseblarg I can do it from a technical end. I've never found a fill I really like.
Anything stopping you from taking this process and mixing it a bit with how you do the image candy to make multi colored drop candy or something to that effect? as someone else suggested a rainbow drop candy could be interesting.
Ah, I see what you mean. Thanks I don't remember ever seeing that video.
+Jeff Mcfarlane the presses distort a lot. You can see how stripes go with the thill mint video.
Can you show us how you package your candies please? Like so they see!!
why didnt you make purple grape
i want to order this cause i love sour candyyy!!
drop that acid and watch Dr. Who and play role playing games.
ORDERED some of these acid drops,hopefully thry taste as good as they look
omg Acid candy is GREAT Oh so i was on your website and me and my family LOVE your candy? just one thing you dont sell Acid drops on there may i ask wh??
+Djcool111323 AKA Amy they are there under drops . www.pd.net/node/63
Are those plastic spoons? Is it safe to put plastic in the hot, hot sugar. Doesn't plastic release chemicals when it heats up.
Thank you 😸
katrina hinkle They're wooden
would you be willing to do a video on making cough drops if you haven't already
what are the spoons you stir the molten sugar made of plastic or wood? i was wondering if plastic would melt at 300°
Thanks for the info. Great channel. You got a new subscriber.
They are wood. No idea if plastic would melt, I guess it would depend on what plastic the spoon was made from. Silicone can take heat into the 400's. Polystyrne melts in the mid 400's also (all F) but decomposes at a lower temp. can't remember what that is. A thermoplastic in general is a bad idea. Metal spoons get hot. Most candy makers use tong depressors. I have lots of wooden spoons from the ice cream side of the store to use.
Such an awesome youtube channel!
In the U.K. we have traditional sweets called 'pear drops' from their shape. Are they basically the same? They sound very similar.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pear_drop
Doesent all your candy taste the same? If your only adding food colouring to your candy?
+Kinetic Gold everything has different players. The flavor is added before the candy is port on the table and most candies. For these acid drops the flavor is in with the food coloring when we apply it.
My only problem is using plastic spoons on 300 degree molten sugar.Everything else looks great
I wondered about the spoons, too. But in this video it seems easier to see that they're wood and not plastic.
Then everything looks great!
+Jacob Stienburg The spoons are wood.
Anyone know how sour these are in comparison to Warheads? Thanks!
+FindMe354 more traditional dour. Warheads use a different type of acid.
I wish they just left left it on the candy table and sold that...
have yall tried making black currant acid drops? sounds like a winner to me
+Callum Fretwell the growing of blackcurrant is banned in certain parts of America, you can have blackcurrants in most of the US now and in the places you can't, blackcurrant flavourings are still allowed.
Cant have the fruit (its to protect our native plants), but you can buy flavorings.
Whoops that's literally the exact same thing
You can get the fruit you just can't grow the plant.
It's banned, not illegal
I can't wait til I get my order of these
have you ben to Milton Florida
+slate the gamer I do not think so.
Hey lofty pursuits, love your videos. I'm not much of a sweets fan, but I love my sours. Do you know what altoid sours are? If you can make anything like those, you would sell out so fast.Also with hard candy I find if it has a lot of air pockets sometimes it cuts my mouth. How do you eat candy with air pockets in it without getting cut? Thanks. And does your candy have air pockets? I'm debating on buying a batch, but I'm worried about those damn air pockets. And long live altoid sours.
