See A Restored 19th Century Drop Candy Machine In Action [Video]


Florida-based candy shop Public Displays of Confection uses a restored 19th century fruit drop roller to make a “Nectar Drop” candy, which is described as tasting like pound cake or almonds.

The shop recently demonstrated how the device works and, in the process, revealed why lemon drops and cough drops are called “drops”. As you’ll see in the video below, the process involves rare rollers, hand cranking and an amazingly simple separation method.
