Kencraft makes the most colorful and best tasting candy canes, candy sticks and suckers one will find. We take extra care in applying the colorful, unique striping patterns and adding the best flavorings available. Corn syrup, sugar and water are heated together in large steam kettles to make the candy.
The hot product is then placed on temperature-controlled steel tables, separated into portions, and precisely colored. The largest part of the batch is flavored and then pulled on a giant taffy puller for proper aeration.
An outside cover of candy is wrapped round the flavored center and the colorful stripes are added to form a large cylinder of candy.
The candy is then placed in a machine that stretches and pulls the large mass of candy to a small diameter.
The candy begins to come out of the machine and enters through a series of rollers that shape, twist, cut, wrap and seal the individual candy sticks.
While still warm and pliable, the candy is cooled as it rides the conveyor table to the packaging area.
After careful packing, the candy is shipped fresh to you, our wholesale customer, or stored in our temperature-controlled warehouse.
