    At Lofty Pursuits we make hard candy using techniques and equipment from the 1800's. Here we are making Blue Berry and Strawberry shortcake candy in a pattern inspired by the American flag for flag day and the 4th of July. This is one of our most complex designs as it does not have an outer wrap. The video covers some fun bits about the history of the American Flag.

      Lofty Pursuits thatโ€™s amazing that you know the person that did it! To be clear I donโ€™t dislike it (the FL flag) but I think it pretty blatantly throws those basic rules of flag design out the window

    • Lofty Pursuits

  • Abe Coulter
    Abe Coulter 4 months ago

    Greg. I have a story for you. I purchased some local rock candy. Bit into a piece and broke a tooth down to the gum line.....20 minutes later I sucked on another piece to take mine off the pain. Bit into it with my front tooth. Broke that one in half vertically. Cost $5000 New Zealand dollars to fix. Turns out my teeth were damaged from reflux disorder called GERD. Oh how I should have been more careful.

    • Lofty Pursuits

      +Lofty Pursuits there was a company that used to make the mix into rock candy "bricks". Big hard bricks. My fave flavour was aniseed. Sold them for $5. Had to break them will a hammer

    Sooo addicted to this channel! Especially this design! Greg, I'm placing a big order this week, & have the flavors picked out that I wanna order, now I noticed that this flavor is on the website right now, but I thought it was only available on The 4th of July!? I hope not, as this is the video that made me fall in love with Lofty Pursuits, & turned on ALOT of friends
    too! Lol! Thank you!

    Fun channel to watch but I might just say your quality control needs to be worked on... rushing to make vs. slowing down and focusing on detail. Check out the asians on "I Share U Watch". You are every bit as talented, just rushing things too much imho. End results (images, cuts, etc.) are messy.

      It's just me. I point the cameras and get to work. What i get, i get. Enjoy it or dont, but this is what I can produce. If the cameras go out of focus that's it, I use the footage or i dont.

      Umm, Tallahassee is about 20 minutes south of the GA boarder. There is almost no Florida above Tallahassee. We have one location right of I-10 and Thomasville road in Tallahassee.
