After cooking the peppermint candy in a copper kettle over an open flame, each batch is separated into two parts. One becomes the red peppermint center while a smaller portion is stretched by hand on a candy hook until it is white. Then it forms a "blanket" that is stretched over the red peppermint before being cut into drops by a vintage candy roller. The result is a refreshing candy that tastes as good as it looks. Ingredients: sugar, dextrose, natural flavor, artificial color (fd&c red #40). Cooked in a copper kettle with top quality ingredients before being formed by vintage equipment. Made in the usa! Manufactured in a facility that processes tree nuts, peanuts, dairy and soy products. Do not eat if you have allergies to these products.
