Sunday and monday I made some candy with my brother and our dad :D

First we made some marshmallows that tasted like bananas and put them in chocolade. (I know they don't look like bananas but I don't care, they taste yummy)



Then we made some more marshmallows, this time we put liquorice powder and capsicum flavour in them, tastes funny :lol:



Then we moved over to gummy "bears" (dunno the english word for that) they taste like strawberry and are covered in a powder of dextrose and citric acid, makes you look like you've eaten a lemon :lol:



Then we made liquorice, soft sweet liquorice :drool: it's cut in diamond shape and covered in normal sugar.



Them the last thing we made was, uhmm don't know the english word for it, but it's lollipops without the stick :D with cola flavour and a little citric acid to make it taste just right, yum.

Had a bicycle once.
Thanks for reminding me that I got absolutely nothing to eat at home.

I could really use one or two of those banana marshmallow things right now. :(

Exactly the opposite for me. I just stuffed 2 pizzas, a bag of chips, and a 2litre bottle of mineral water into me, and I feel like I'm gonna explode if I look or smell any other food. :lol:

Interesting... I haven't tried making candy before. But do you know there's a hair on your gummy bears? :)

Wow, nice spot. It adds to the flavor. :D

Apart from the hair, mgkdk, they look pretty bloody tasty! Nothing wrong with a sweet tooth :)

Those imitation bananas look really funny, but this thread inspired me to make something. So last night at midnight I went out to buy stuff to make rice krispie squares... it's the only thing I can make.

It turned out pretty good, but I left them on the counter and they were like reinforced concrete this morning.

:oops:
