THE BEST Candy

How It’s Made: Rainbow Sprinkles

How It’s Made: Rainbow Sprinkles

Science Channel’s always enthralling How It’s Made shares a look inside a candy factory that makes those little colorful sprinkles (aka “jimmies”), and the process that it takes to turn sugar, shortening, and food coloring into the decorative treat.

Literal Chocolate Milk Bottle

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.

Missing Body Parts Candy

The Twizzler Prank

The Twizzler Prank

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!

Gummy Pizza

How Razzles Are Made

How Razzles Are Made

Thanks to their unusual texture, Razzles fall somewhere on the continuum between candy and gum. Watch how a sugary mix of dextrose and gum is turned into powder, then pressed back into pellets using a massive amount of force.

Chocolate Tools

Chocolate Tools

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.

Candy from the Ice Maker

Candy from the Ice Maker

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.

Beer Jelly Bellies

Beer Jelly Bellies

If there’s one thing that Jelly Belly is good at (besides feeding our sugar addictions) is putting unexpectedly accurate flavors into their candies. Yes, these jelly beans taste just like draft beer. Sadly, they’re non-alcoholic.

Blown Sugar Animals

Blown Sugar Animals

While you have to go to a fancy pastry competition here in the States to witness this art form, in Xian, China, it’s as easy as going to this street vendor, who crafts intricate candy animals by blowing into molten hot sugar.

Chocolate Paint Tubes

Chocolate Paint Tubes

Combining the art of candymaking with a more traditional medium, Nendo’s edible chocolate paint tubes are filled with delicious “pigments” like strawberry, melon, brandy and blueberry. Too bad they’re only available in Japan.

Jack Daniel’s Whiskey Pecans

Jack Daniel’s Whiskey Pecans
