***WARNING***This video is made for educational and entertainment purposes only, if you attempt to make this at home you do so at your own risk and we can not be held responsible for any injuries. Making hard candy is a dangerous process since such high temperature are used to make it. With that said, for those that are curious and want specifics this is how we make it.

For one full size batch we combine into a copper kettle 7 pounds of corn syrup, 14 pounds of sugar, 1 teaspoon of cream of tartar and 2 quarts of water. We heat it up to 310°F, then add the flavoring oil before removing it from the stove and pouring it onto the marble table to cool down. Here we add in color and flavoring oil before stretching it on the hook. We stretch it to add in air bubbles which turns it white. We combine the stripes into the body and put it through our fancy candy cutter, then we just wait for it to cool down and bag it up for you to buy!

Please pick second day air with a cold pack, if you don't we will have to call you and tell you that you need it. Although we love talking to our customers we just don't have the time to do that. So please help us help you get your order as quickly and painlessly as possible.

For the people wondering why we use our hands to put the corn syrup into the kettle it would stick to gloves or a ladle too much if we did that, trust us we've tried. Also the health code regulations that we abide by have determined that it is more than safe for us to do so without gloves because we then heat the candy up to 310ºF or 154ºC. As for the people worrying that Max didn't use soap when "washing his hands," he actually wasn't washing his hands, corn syrup isn't unsanitary or pathogenic, he was just rinsing the corn syrup off of his hands. And the reason he was rinsing his hands in between grabbing the corn syrup is because if you rinse your hands under cold water then corn syrup won't stick to your hands very much. The more you know 🌈🌠

I like Watermelon

It's so great to see your videos. They are quite long but relaxing. Greetings from France.

Hello Dear.I Want ur Help. please Reply

They can produce more if they talk less and work more 🤣🤣

Corona or not your not supposed to talk over food droplets fly out in bunches.

You should do a princess line of ribbon candy and add edible glitter!

Their conversation was giving me pre my parents divorce anxiety.

I was watching all of these candy one, taiwanese shop, and street candy videos... I very quickly realized that what i like about your videos is the conversation and the family dynamic:) There is nothing worse than seeing people work fast in silence:/, im glad you are all making candy 🍬 content i love to watch🥰

It’s so nice to here a small town mentioned in here. I think I might have seen the guy who said he’s from Batavia! Lol

They should make a watermelon linen one

You are extremely underrated.
Your jokes are so unique.
You have the best humor.

This makes me appreciate candy more..

I like to watch Asian candy makers because they add more detail. For example, watermelon candy is made to look like a slice of watermelon.

I have watched this video many times but still enjoy watching it. Great video!

Why dip you hand in the cold water 💦 in the beginning

The hard candies are what I want to order most! Definitely watermelon alone and then both the fruit & friendly and the tie dye fruit punch. I just wish shipping wasn't SO MUCH. I know it's not their fault.

SPY HUNTER was the game where you drive into the back of the semi truck!

I hear this video inspired Harry styles’ smash hit “watermelon sugar” 😎


I was like 👁👄👁 what are they talking about

I think Strawberry and Lemon would be good together. Strawberry lemonade hard candy and ribbon candy.

what if you did cotton candy, candy corn, and or caramel flavored candy?

Where is this candy making place?

That game was called Spy Hunter!

Bruh is so good to see everybody working with fun and talking

Was wondering why YouTube recommended this, then I saw “Edward Vl: The Boy King” doc cued up on the monitor.

She's still wondering if it's green body pink stripe to this day.

I was shocked of the amount of sugar

That’s awesome you guys are in Syracuse I heard the guy say Batavia and i was like no wayyy

Why do they use corn syrup?

The sad part is that I am 13 and I have played all of the games that they wheee talking about

They talking all over it all the golf balls...
And the person recording had no coverage on his head....

Does anyone know how long it takes for candy like this to go bad?


this seems like such a chill place to work.

I know this video is old but i checked the website just to see whats available and ive never seen just 3 items available. Step it up fellas 😄 just kidding. You're all amazing. And work together so well.
The candy family. Related or not you work and get along beautifully. I'll be ordering when the weather cools off.
Stay safe and blessed.

Possibly the worst video i seen in a while, supposed to be how its made not some conversation about weather and mobile ads. I came for a 'how its done' not discount advertising, shut the fk up and dub your nonsense with music atleast.

That video game you were talking about is called "Spy Hunter".Do you all by chance make sugar free candies?

Sir.....what Did you use to harden the candy liquid?

Plz reply me

I love watching you keep it up 👍
