How is Rock Candy Made?

Have you ever wondered how we get the letters into lettered rock, how the BLACKPOOL gets into Blackpool Rock or how we get the BRIGHTON into Brighton Rock? Well here's how. Seaside rock is still made in the traditional way. The rock is hand made by a practised craftsman called a Sugar Boiler. You will see with the amount of "toffee" needed to form the rock that we cannot make the rock in single bars we have to make a minimum of 100 sticks.

The Sugar & Glucose is Boiled

The Sugar & Glucose is Boiled

We use a large copper pan to boil up the sugar & glucose.

This is heated to approx 300 degrees.

Cool & Divide

Cool & Divide

When the sugar mixture reaches the required temperature the contents of the copper pan is tipped onto a cooling table.

The mixture is divided

Aerating the centre & flavouring

Aerating the centre & flavouring

Some of the mixture is taken to another machine to be aerated & flavoured. The entire batch of rock has to be the same flavour.

This is going to be the core of the rock.

Colouring the candy rock

Colouring the candy rock

The remainder of the toffee is mixed with colour. This will become the outer casing of the rock and in this case is going to be a colourful striped rock bar. When we make promotional rock bars we endeavour to match the casing to corporate colours however we give no guarantee's to colour match as we are working with food colours (not printing inks)

Lettering the rock

Next the letters are formed. By layering strips of coloured & white toffee the letters are built. By varying the colour of the strips of toffee we can vary the colour of rock lettering. Sometimes people think that we can use computer fonts when making rock. This is impossible, as you can see the rock is hand made we cannot work with fonts the rock lettering is merely built from strips of toffee.

Skegness Rock

Here the letters will say SKEGNESS ROCK

Lettering & Core put together

Lettering & Core put together

Next the core of the rock and the rock lettering are put together. As well as making seaside rock we can put compnay names through the rock or even bride & groom names to make wedding rock.

Rock outer casing

Rock outer casing

The strips of toffee are put together in the correct order to make the casing of the rock.

Batch Roller

Batch Roller

The huge lump of rock is put into a machine called a batch roller, this helps to keep it's shape.

See the huge lump of toffee. This is why we cannot make one personalised stick of rock. We have to make a whole batch.

The rock is pulled

The rock is pulled

The rock is then pulled into long strings. A device not unike a pair of scissors is used to cut the rock into the length required.

Wrapping the rock

Wrapping the rock

Finally the rock is wrapped and is ready for sale.

Next time we might make Blackpool rock or Brighton rock! We make promotional rock for companies, seaside rock, lettered rock,personalised rock such as wedding rock, anniversary rock, barmitzvah rock. We make rock bars all sizes, many colours, lots of flavours. We make novelty rock such as dummies, rock breakfasts, rock fishfingers, rock fruit bowls, rock lollipops, rock sweets. The list is endless.
But if you want rock you know where to come!
