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?

    As a marshmallow maker, this was SO fun to watch! Your alien is perfect in his imperfection. Well done, Safiya!

    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.

    Interesting fact: here in the UK we call that image candy "Rock", and it is sold all over the UK, but is especially popular in coastal towns. You can get is cut up or in sticks (uncut) and I buy some every time I go on holiday to a coastal town to support local businesses.
  • i think the most epic candy would be a franken-candy using all of the different flavors mixed together 🥴🥴

    The little alien is cute! You can maybe name him Extra-Pear-Esterial?

    This was such a fun experience to watch and the staff at Lofty Pursuits seem super sweet 😊

    I loved how supportive jake was the whole time. Also I feel like Safiya is just completing side quests at this point 😂
  • Stacy Mejia
    I actually really love "Smirkin Merkin". Y'all should definitely name the candy that haha
  • Theflowerdude
    Some fun names for the last candy are “The extra’pear’restrial” and “Pear-anormal Activity” 👽🛸

    +Thx for all the positive comments :D

    I discovered Lofty Pursuits at the end of last year and fell in love instantly, I'm so jealous you actually got to make the hard candy!
  • Rhea Dennis
