This fascinating 1950’s footage of English candy maker Barratts Confectioners walks us through the arduous process of making a hand-rolled candy known as “London Rock” – which had its name embedded into each tube of candy.
It’s been a while since we checked in with The Food Surgeon, but his practice seems to be going strong. In his latest video, he helps to ensure a grape Red Vine has proper flow so it can be used as a drinking straw. Also how can something purple be called a Red Vine?
It might look like an ordinary bottle of milk, but other than the label and the lid, this thing is entirely made from candy. DaveHax walks us through the relatively simple process of using drink bottles to mold chocolate into an edible container filled with even more candy treats.
“If it tasted like steak, I’d get it.” Blind Film Critic Tommy Edison puts his senses to the test as he tastes several different Jelly Belly jelly beans and attempts to guess their colors. We’re guessing that it would be just as hard to guess the flavors if we were simply blindfolded.
Christmas might be over, but there’s always time for candy. Sit back, relax and enjoy the fascinating process behind the creation of these colorful holiday treats, from machines that pull hot sugar, to ones that transform a 100 lb. block of candy into a thin and twisty rope.

Some guys were on a road trip when they caught their buddy Micah asleep with his mouth wide open. So what’s any good friend to do? Stuff his mouth full of Twizzlers, of course. Our reaction would be similar: Hey, free candy!
Combining two of our favorites – pizza and candy, the 8″ Gummy Pizza features an orange crust, cherry pepperonis, apple green peppers, and lemon yellow peppers, and its berry cheese is guaranteed not to burn the roof of your mouth.
These insanely realistic belgian chocolate sculptures look exactly like hand tools, but are completely edible. Just don’t leave them in your toolbox or they might melt. Who are we kidding? You’ll eat them long before you do that.
Despite the shortcomings of this clip (vertical video, broken teeth from frozen Starburst), we still find the idea of replacing the ice in our freezers’ ice maker with candies to be truly inspired – especially those mini Reese’s PBCs.
