Slow Motion Making of Peppermint Hard Candy

    Please pick second day air with a cold pack, if you don't we will have to call you and tell you that you need it. Although we love talking to our customers we just don't have the time to do that. So please help us help you get your order as quickly and painlessly as possible.
    ***WARNING***This video is made for educational purposes only, if you attempt to make this at home you do so at your own risk and we can not be held responsible for any injuries. Making hard candy is a dangerous process since such high temperature are used to make it. With that said, for those that are curious and want specifics this is how we make it.
    For one full size batch we combine into a copper kettle 14 pounds of corn syrup, 7 pounds of sugar, 1 teaspoon of cream of tartar and 2 quarts of water. We heat it up to 310°F, then we remove it from the stove and pour it onto the marble table and cool it down. Here we add in color and flavoring oil before stretching it on the hook. We stretch it to add in air bubbles which turns it white. We combine the stripes into the body and put it through our fancy candy cutter, then we just wait for it to cool down and bag it up for you to buy!

    It's sticking more because you aren't letting it rest longer. its more of a sticky substance when you pour and play straight away

    when I worked in a small sweet {candy} factory{just 2 of us} back in the 1950's in the uk we had a water cooled steel table we pored out the mix quickly added the flavor and colour by this time a semi hard shell had formed on the botom of the molten candy it was then mixed by lifting one corner and folding to the middle repeating this on all 4 corners untill it was workable it was then quickly lifted to a worm table where it was cut into flat squares and fed into a hand operated candy forming machiene the whole process was done very quickly a lot faster than in this video and all done without gloves or paddles or tools of any kind we had to work VERY fast useing alternet fingers against the thumb one hand at a time to prevent buning how times have changed

    It's so cringe-worthy!
    I can't focus on the video when all I see is no use of hair nets or beard nets.
    I'm OSHA certified and this is gross.
    I'm sorry I couldn't get into the video.
    You guys making it, obviously enjoy talking and breathing with your open mouths over something that is going to be consumed by other people. Have you no respect for others?! Honestly!
    P.S. I'm NOT here to bash your video, just the work ethic.
    P.S.S. Throw your negative comments at me. I'll just toss them in the trash. >.>

    This was oddly satisfying. A half an hour of my life I don’t want back. 15 mins of this was repetitive watching them cut the candy, but I couldn’t just stop watching. My daddy didn’t raise no quitter! 😂

  • Aniyunwiya Ageya

    Yes, you are losing flavour when you add it to the hot syrup. Peppermint is an essential oil, and has a much lower flash point that vegetable cooking oils, and the evidence of losing flavour is in how much it burns your eyes, as the hot syrup acts as a sort of 'diffuser', in an intense sense.
