Makes one wonder how they came up with the "recipe" process; i.e., the machinery to knead the dough. How did they do it before the machines were invented? How did they know the ingredient amounts to make the machines long enough? I have more questions now than I did before I saw the video!

I have watched candy being made before... some places still do it by hand...

Elaine, I always wonder how anyone comes up with any process. Some people are amazingly intuitive, patient, determined, intelligent...you name it. I'll bet the answers to your questions are out there. Somewhere. :-D

Colleen, yes, it seems to me that I've seen taffy being made in resort towns. I'm not sure I've seen candy canes being made, but I think it's a similar process.
