Why don't more people place Cut Rock Hard Candy around their homes at Christmas time? After all, it's one of the oldest old-fashioned holiday candies out there. So many of us sadly grew up thinking this was "fancy" candy, and explaining away why we shouldn't be able to enjoy it. (Now that I think about it, it was probably just my parents' favorite candy!)
Send your kids (over the age of about 12) on a field trip for their tastebuds during winter break this year with this reliably awesome nostalgic candy. With its tantalizingly artistic cross-sectional fruit details, Cut Rock Hard Candy is as much a cultural experience as it is a tasty treat! And with its relatively small pieces, portion control is simple! Of course, with its about-a-million flavors, there's a lot of picking, choosing, and compromising to be done.
There are about 100 pieces of hard candy in each pound, and ours come carefully packed in a 5-pound bulk bag.
CandyFavorites.com offers the internet's largest candy selection and we would love customers to share childhood memories and thoughts about sweets from their past.
As a bonus, we will choose one (1) review a week, based on creativity and originality, and award the author a $10 Sweetcertificate Gift Voucher!

When I was in elementary school, we would make wreaths out of this candy to hang on our tree! I wasn't even sure you could find this candy anymore.
We would save metal pot pie tins, then lay the candies down around the outside edge of the tin. Mom would help me put the tins on a cookie sheet and bake them in a 250 degree oven until the candy melted together. As soon as they melted we would take them out of the oven to cool. I always took a toothpick and made a hole in the "top" of the wreath for the string.
Once they were completely cooled we would pop them out of the tin, put a string in the hole and hang them on the tree or give them as gifts! I always loved making them and how the picture on the candy would stay pretty much the same even when it melted.
