    In Aus, 'lolly' is the closest term we have to 'candy' though for us it doesn't include things like chocolate or fudge and beyond the term 'confectionery' we don't have a term that encompasses all sweet goods. This type of candy would most likely be called 'rock candy' here in Aus as well, however it isn't very common so even if you used the term it may not be always recognized. My guess would be people would refer to them as 'the cylinder lollies with a picture in them'. ;)

  • PJ E

    Hey Greg, I am inspired to try at home to make some candy after watching your video. Two questions pls...1. Once the candy is made how do you store it for sale so the pieces don't stick together? 2. Those are cool looking gloves, are they special for candy/baking, what brand of gloves are they?

    • millie parker
      millie parker Year ago

      Meagan Fox he has said in another video that thy put it in the white because sometimes the citric acid doesn't break up or creates clumps so it's easier to hide that in the white because its opaque

    why do they only add the citric acid to the colorless part?

    • Lofty Pursuits

      yes, they go in before the candy is poured in most cases. the acid drop video the flavor is added at the same time as the color is.

    Is there a reason you wacked the rod with the handle end of scissors instead of cutting it ?

    • Lofty Pursuits

      If I cut it, it pinches the candy and you can't see the image. If I wack it it breaks. The scissors are just handy.

  • Nancy Massi
    Nancy Massi Year ago

    Just a question, is there a reason why the coloring or flavors aren't added to the pot then stirred in? Rather than adding them when the mixture is on the table.

    • Lofty Pursuits
      Lofty Pursuits  Year ago

      Aesthetics. Citric acid leaves little white spots. I like to only put it in the bits of the candy where I can hide it. Makes the rest look more jewel like. Since it dissolves in your mouth, it tastes the same, just looks better.

      Hi,

      Over here in UK most seaside such as Blackpool, Bridlington and Scarborough have rock shops where we can watch it being made and I couldn't see why it didn't stick .

    • Lofty Pursuits
      Lofty Pursuits  2 years ago +3

      Oh it can. First of all we wax the table to make it as non-stick as we can. The real issue and prevention of sticking, is that the candy wants to stick to things the same temperature as it is. We move it around the table to keep it on cooler bits of the table. This cools the candy faster, but also keeps it from sticking. The same thing happens with the bronze rollers we use. If we make a big batch, we need a fan to keep it cool.

    why do you only add the citric acid to the non-colored portion? I've seen this in many of your videos.

    • Lofty Pursuits
      Lofty Pursuits  2 years ago

      once it gets in your mouth it all mixes, so where the acid is is less important that it being there. It leaves little white spots in the clear colors, and we just don't think it looks as nice. It's strictly aesthetics.

  • DancingInDreamWorld
    DancingInDreamWorld 2 years ago

    Why is the citric acid only ever added to the white part? Is it because the citric acid would affect the colored bits?

    All the names presented beyond image candy were of non USA origin and dismissed for a variety of reasons. Does this mean what you call image candy was not wide spread or common historically in the USA or was there no widespread name?
    In Australia, at least in the 21st century, Lollies are a generic term for any small confectionery not just the hard image candy you use. Boiled Lollies or Rock Candy are common words (at least in Victoria) for this kind of candy but also includes non image variants. There may be olderbut Rock is used in the lollie made from 1853 (just 64 years after the first fleet from the UK arrived) for the Castlemaine Rock (one of the more popular, still available brands, popular at airports)

    • Lofty Pursuits
      Lofty Pursuits  2 years ago

      Nope, no widespread name in the USA, but keep in mind, until 10 years ago, this style of candy was almost unheard of in the USA. Image Candy is a Lofty Pursuits term. It seems to solve the problem of what to call it locally.

    So, I'm kind of a fan and I've watched all of your candy making videos (These videos are one of my favorite things to watch, especially when I'm stressed. They are very relaxing!) and I think this is the first time I've heard you say a couple of things.
    First, that wrapping the candy in the single clear color gives a better cut when you cut down the candy. What exactly do you mean? Do you mean it looks better or it actually cuts into cleaner edges? If so, is that because all of the air bubbles in the white cause it to shatter differently?
    Second, that the reason why you don't use the white food coloring is that it's titanium oxide. I always just assumed that it had to do with stretching it being a more classic technique and I had a lot of respect for that, but now that I hear about the TiO2, I have even more respect for that as a choice!

    • Beth B
      Beth B 2 years ago +1

      I think you're right in your theory about the white bubbles changing the way it shatters. Think of a candy cane; the semi-clear red is much more glass-like in texture than the brittle white. If you want to get a clean break instead of a crumbly mess, it probably helps to have that harder outer shell to make it stronger.

    • Stephen Fabiano
      Stephen Fabiano 2 years ago

      my theory is that adding the extra outer most layer will help protect the image from distorting while they are pulling the rods/ and or chopping them.

  • Cats Are Rubbish
    Cats Are Rubbish 2 years ago

    Hi, I'm English and we call it a "stick _of_ rock", not a sticker rock. I think the confusion is in the fact that when saying something like "stick of rock" or "pound of bacon" we tend to drop the f and the o becomes an a or uh sound... phonetically resulting in "a stick uh rock" or "a pound uh bacon".

    • Cats Are Rubbish

      I was trying. Your funny accents are hard for me to do :) I have a regular customer who spent summers near Blackpool. Finding our store was a gateway to her childhood. Sorry if I can't get the queens tongue correct. ... Mind you this customer's accent is not the one that the queen has by a long shot. more like the one from "Are you being served"

    What's the most complicated design you guys have ever made?

      We did a custom design of a running girl with a pony tail flowing behind her. Came out great, but I really did not think it'd work.

    Great video and music as always! I really like that you drew a diagram to show how everything comes together. It's really great having a visual explanation along with watching you all make the candy. Keep up the awesome work! :)

    Is there any kind of candy in particular you feel is underappreciated, or goes overlooked due to customers not being willing to try something new or strange? I'm going to be putting in an order this afternoon and was hoping for a recommendation for something odd!

      Nothing that is on our website. Some of the candies we make that I love (Plum, Pineapple) just don't sell well, so we rotated them out. We bring things back from time to time. My favorite: Corn. Yes Corn. Amazing flavor.

    I've had a few questions about the process but never thought to ask!
    1. What makes scissors the best thing to cut up the liquid sugar with?
    2. I would have thought particles from the gloves would end up in the candy, why doesn't it?
    Also, Australian terminology is usually rock candy for this type of candy but it's under the umbrella of lollies. Lollies include hard and jelly candy but doesn't generally extend to chocolate.

      Why doesn't your wooden spoon end up in your food? It's porous and breaks down over time. We seal the gloves with wax, by the time we get them to the candy they are waterproof. They need to be.

    What is the most complex and/or difficult image you have made? Have you ever done one that you thought was going to be awful but came out awesome, and vice versa?

      A corporate logo of a girl with a ponytail running. I was convinced I could not do it. It came out great.

    So I live in Japan and have been going on your website frequently, but to have it shipped here is a bit suspicious to us because wouldn't it melt?

      Oh wow really, jeez, I guess I thought it would take a lot more to heat them up, I live in New Zealand so it never really gets all that hot.
