    When I realized one of the themes was "yo-yo", I immediately thought of Tommy Smothers. Then you go an announce that you have a signed yo-yo from him. So cool!

      The hook gets washed daily. It also gets seasoned with bees wax it does not rust. Do you let your cast iron skillet rust?

    I could never make that type of candy because even though I know it’s hot I couldn’t resist shoving the soft candy into my mouth 🍭

    Is there a version of Tuti fruti that can be made without blueberries and bananas? Sadly I am allergic to both as well as peaches.

  • devil's milita prepping

    When u cut the candy at the end is it actually breaking it when cutting or is it just an optical illusion

    There is a shop in this world which sells toys, held world yoyo competition championships, has an antique yoyo collection, an employee who has won multiple yoyo competitions, and who makes Victorian style hard candy IN STORE for people to watch?
    It's like, everything a 10 year old could ever want as a place to work. I'm so jealous.

    How long does it typically take for you guys to make a batch of candies? From the videos, it seems like it's a pretty short amount of time but I'm guessing it's probably more.

    I've seen several candy making videos (so mesmerizing) anyway - they all use the hand pulling method. Would you get the same result from those taffy pulling machines?

    • Lofty Pursuits

      +Liza Brown Yes, but small ones are very hard to find.

    Have you ever considered something like the hotdog rollers at gas stations to keep your rods rolling while you cool them?

      If you watch some of their newer videos they now have a batch roller that they use for their large batches

      I think they cool down fast enough it's not really necessary. But I'm sure larger candy producers use something like that in their automation.

    I'm watching from Chico, California!! We have a super fun toy store that doubles as the national yo-yo museum and also houses the worlds largest working yo-yo! It's a cool place to visit if you're ever in Northern California :)

    Hmmm I noticed this difference because of previous videos but the person rolling and the pulling and breaking off the logs seems like they are a new person

    • Kristina G
      Kristina G 2 years ago

      Ah okay but I was just saying I notice Greg's technique I was wondering if the person helping him at the time was new because their technique was like they were still getting used to breaking, rolling and pulling the candy, I think their gloves said Jorann on them

    • Lofty Pursuits
      Lofty Pursuits  2 years ago

      +Kristina G we have lots of people, but mostly Greg does the videos (mostly because it's hard to fit two people and a camera in the candy area)
