    We make hard candy using 100+ year old, Victorian machines and equipment. Flavor and color are linked in our mind, and we break these links by making candy where the color is a constant but the flavor is not. We play with your brains by showing the stroop effect, and if you get our candy you can see the effect with flavor.

    Red candy could be any flavor, really. Cherry, cinnamon, fruit punch, watermelon, apple, pomegranate... they say a picture's worth a thousand words, and the mere image of red candy brought into question of it's flavor is no exception.

    The challenge was easy because I cheated I took of my glasses and I could not see the words but the colors are distinct who knew being legally blind was useful.

    I once had some sort of lemon candy that wasn't sour. o.0 So confusing.

    I prefer Pepsi over Coke. I have Coke branded glasses, complete with their iconic shape.
    I drank Pepsi from those glasses.
    It was *wrong.*

    I’ve never had grape soda, candy or anything. Only the fruit, what other candy flavours does the USA have thank UK/Europe doesn’t?

    Why do you not use a copper pot to cook the candy?

    for the people who bought these: were there mint candies in your bag? The reason I didn't buy these last year was bc my brother pointed out that PDC does make mint candies on their rollers, and I'm allergic so if these did have mints that would've been... not at all fun for me. So if Greg does another assortment batch, what do you think my odds are of getting something with mint in?

    Easy trick is to unfocus your sight.. this way you will see colours and shapes but you won't be able to make out details/read..

    Psychological candy. That's actually a really good idea. It's been a while now. Has this candy been a hit or a flop for you?

      @Lofty Pursuits - Excellent news. Kind of a novelty, I suppose, but I am still in love with the idea. It's so simple, but genius. Makes me think of the times I think there is Coke in my cup and get a mouthful of tea. Lol

    OK so it’s kind of weird I know my wife and kids think I’m weird too. But if I don’t know what I need in it taste bad to me. Same with certain smells if I can’t identify this smell it smells horrible. Then when I find out what it is, I think it smells or tastes great. I know it’s in my head.

    Love the idea of candies that are the same color but different flavors. Sour and salty? What? Definitely Madness

    Call me humbug but this is the very reason I loathe those Jelly Beans that taste like popcorn and a dark purple tasting like black licorice. I wish you the best of luck with everything but I'll be sticking to the flavors that match their colors. Mixing them up just messes with me way beyond it being fun. LOL
