Nana taught me how to make this candy many years ago. We would make so many flavors and her candy dishes were always filled with them. I decided to make them with my son and fill our candy dishes like nana did. We made many flavors, the possibilities are endless, rootbeer, peppermint, wintergreen,cinnamon, spearmint, anise,lime,strawberry, orange, you name it you can make it. I match the color food coloring i use to the flavor of the candy. When you make several flavors the candy bowls are just bursting with color, much like a stained glass window. And the candy is bursting with flavor. So easy and fun to make and a great way to fill up those candy bowls like they did in the good ole days.
