A big thank you to Greg & the team at Lofty Pursuits for helping us out with this video; make sure to check out their YouTube channel here! youtube.com/c/LoftyPursuits

Over the past few (years, honestly), I've watched other people make custom hard candy from scratch - oddly satisfying pulling, stretching, rolling, and chopping - with adorably tiny results. So, after a lot of watching from the sidelines, I decided that I needed to try this out for myself - how hard could it actually be? So I ventured to Lofty Pursuits candy store in Tallahassee, FL where Greg & the team taught me how to sling candy - old school style. We made custom flavored drop candy in a press, and two different batches of image candy - one watermelon, and one tiny disgruntled alien. What do you guys think of our final candies?

    My dad taught Safiya Nygaard how to make candy!? I'm in a Safiya Nygaard video!? It still doesn't feel real. It was so amazing getting to meet Safiya, and I'm glad she enjoyed it too.
