Making Hard Candy the Old-Fashioned Way

I really appreciate people who keep the old traditions of how you make stuff alive. Mostly because I don’t have the patience for that stuff, but I admire anyone who does. I also really appreciate candy. And when you combine those two appreciations, you get me posting this video of how Lofty Pursuits, a candy shoppe out of Tallahassee, Florida, makes holiday hard candy.

Also, there are certain points in the video where it looks like a behind the scenes FX test from The Blob. Either version, really.

Check out their website for more info–they may make vintage candy, but they are all 21st Century and stuff with their podcasts and their Patreon and whatnot. There’s also this, which…I don’t even know what to say about that. Just please don’t ask them if they have tangerine sours yet.
