Handmade Buckeye Candy

Handmade Buckeye Candy

DIY Candy Vending Machine

Giant Gummy Burger

Giant Gummy Burger

We love a good burger as much as the next guy. We also love candy. So now there’s this. This cheeseburger gummy candy weighs in a nearly 1/2 a pound, and tastes like strawberries, not beef and American cheese. Sadly, it doesn’t ship to the US, but we’ve got a gummy hot dog.

Compressed Air Cannon Slow Mo

Compressed Air Cannon Slow Mo

Candy Blox Bulk Pack

Candy Blox Bulk Pack

Krispy Kreme Jelly Beans

Krispy Kreme Jelly Beans

Fans of donuts and candy will be thrilled to hear that Krispy Kreme has teamed up with Jelly Belly to create a new range of jelly beans that taste like their donuts. However, we don’t recommend warming these ones up in the microwave or dunking them in your coffee.

A hypnotic video of the people and machines working tirelessly inside the factory of UK confectionary company Simpkins, who has been making its colorful hard candies and packing them up in its iconic round tins for nearly 100 years.

How Jawbreakers Are Made

How Jawbreakers Are Made

We’ve seen how jawbreakers can be crushed and melted, now watch how they they’re made. Each bone-crunching candy starts out as a tiny compressed sugar pellet, and gradually grows through a ridiculously loud process of tumbling in sugar, flavorings, and food coloring.

Army Men Gummies

Army Men Gummies

These gummy G.I.s will eventually make their way into your GI tract – but not before you spend some time playing with your food. They’re green apple flavored, and come in four different poses. Sold in a jumbo size 5 lb bag.

Repairing a Clogged Licorice Artery

Repairing a Clogged Licorice Artery

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?

The Lollipop Jar Machine

The Lollipop Jar Machine

Get your virtual sugar fix with this short, but still oddly satisfying video of a machine that serves just a single purpose: to fill plastic jars with handfuls of lollipops. Best if watched in a continuous loop.

Literal Chocolate Milk Bottle

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.

Hydraulic Press vs. Jawbreaker

Hydraulic Press vs. Jawbreaker

The Hydraulic Press Channel rips off the Red Hot Nickel Ball dude, subjecting a seemingly everlasting candy to the force of their deadly press. The hemisphere shot was surprisingly satisfying, and the microwaved one is a reminder of why a blast shield is a good idea.

Peep Laparotomy

Peep Laparotomy

To celebrate Easter, the always precise, frequently gross Food Surgeon took our favorite artificially-colored marshmallow baby chickens, and impregnated one with the gooey innards Cadbury Creme Egg candy. Wrong? Yes. Delicious? Most definitely.

Gummy Coke Bottle

Gummy Coke Bottle

Morena DIY transformed the sugary drink into a giant gummy candy by pouring a soda and gelatin mix into the bottle and then cutting away the mold. The recipe calls for scotch, but we think she meant scotch tape. Still, we took a swig just in case.

Guessing Jelly Bean Colors

Guessing Jelly Bean Colors

“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.

Brew Candy

Brew Candy

Swag Brewery extends its win streak in creating products that capture the spirit of their brewed cousins, but are awesome on their own merits. Their hard candies are wonderful treats inspired by a hoppy IPA, a honeyed ale, and a delicious coffee stout.
