                    how did this one go so well but Starbursts and M&M's were such disasters?

                      Right!! She basically had starburst halfway thru this video
                      But I think the mistake w M&Ms is the month break...shoulda started after the break

                              The inside of skittles all taste the same. It's the coating that gives them their individual flavor. I think.

I mean, She’s great at what she does, but in every single episode she acts annoyed when she has to do more work to get the recipes correct lol🤷🏼‍♀️ it’s like your great, but if you hate having to go above and beyond to get the recipes right then why did you sign up for this? 🤷🏼‍♀️😂

Can someone tell me where she got it from? And I love these videos, by the way. Compulsive viewing.

It's like a small cement mixer without paddles inside. I think it's called panning. They are misted with water as they tumble, then it's like confectionery sugar gradually built up, then color is added, spinning constantly. Then they put a bit of wax to polish and prevent stickiness.
                                                                                            I'm surprised Clair didn't try to watch a video of their manufactur. They make the stars for fireworks the same way, built up around a rice hull.
