    After watching lots of videos, I had to have some! Just got the watermelon in the mail. Soooooooo cool!! Smooth and delicious! Loved the tiny "seeds" and had to close bag after savoring 5 pieces so I'd have some for later. Thanks Lofty Pursuits. I see a trip to Tallahassee in my future! 💜

    I understand why you don’t sell unicorn droppings online. You probably wouldn’t be able to keep up with the demand.
    However, I wish you did it occasionally. Maybe it could be the prize in a contest? Or you could have a raffle? Another giveaway when you donate to charity?

    The speed of how fast you cut those things inspire me.

    If you accidentally left the hot candy on the cooling table to long would it stick? That would be really hard to get off.

    I just got my order today. I was hoping for a little more depth to the flavor. It doesn’t taste like watermelon. It’s not bad, it’s just not identifiable. It has plenty of citric acid so you get pleasant tart punches. I remember going to the candy store when I was a kid, and they’d have hard candy sticks in different jars separated by flavor. This tastes like that. The candy is brittle so it’s easy to bite if you like to chew hard candy, like me. Overall, interesting.

    why does watermelon candy doesn't taste like real watermelon? is it a similar case of the banana candy vs real banana flavour?

    • Lofty Pursuits
      Lofty Pursuits  10 months ago

      It is similar. Mind you we use natural watermelon flavoring in our candy. Not all natural flavors can take the heat of hard candy making but apparently watermelon can

    You should’ve made stripes of green and darker/lighter green on the outside. But maybe that would be to much work for what its worth.

      Lofty Pursuits That's awesome! Now that you've mentioned it, I seem to recall seeing it on the Lofty Pursuits website. Thanks for your reply!

    • Lofty Pursuits
      Lofty Pursuits  10 months ago

      I think the correct question is why do I have three sousaphones?
      the answer is Lofty Pursuits has a 40 piece marching band. Doesn't every store? You need to watch more of my videos. They play in a few.

    Our great grandparents had a farm in Brooklyn as well...but that was a LOOOOONG time ago. Really cool I came across this video being Brooklyn Boyz ourselves. We will be grabbing some candy at some point soon for future taste test videos for our channel! Awesome video!!!

    Hey I know you have to go to school to get a degree in making candy and stuff. But I can't find what the degree is called and a college for it. I need help!!

      Lofty Pursuits so roughly how old would you have to be to say work at your store and would you teach people the art if they work their.

    • Lofty Pursuits
      Lofty Pursuits  Year ago

      To my knowledge for hard candy there are no schools that teach the art. There are a few for chocolates.

    Hey, I was wondering if you guys could ever make a candy without artificial coloring and or flavoring, because I’m allergic to that stuff, and I still want to buy your candy.

    I love the work, but cant help wondering how good it would look if you went with a deeper green on the outer shell, then took 1/3 and pulled it out to add opaque stripe to the shell... just a thought

    however, got to say, this is beautiful work.

    There's something extremely soothing about watching hard candy being made. It's quite cathartic actually.

  • I Created An Account For This

    I was wondering how you got the black seeds in the candy. When I saw how it was done, I was like "Of course!"
