How it’s made – Jawbreakers

I love chomping on jawbreakers.  Pretty much any sugary treat is fine by me, but the durability/long-lasting nature of jawbreakers make them really good treats.  So when I saw the How It’s Made segment on jawbreakers, I thought it would be worth sharing.  Pay attention to how they form the compressed powder centers, particularly.  They use 5,000 pounds of pressure to compact those so they can start forming the harder shells around that.

Yummy. Just watching that makes me think I need to buy some more jawbreakers.  There’s nothing quite like sucking on some sweet hard balls for a long time, is there?
