But it tastes great! I've learned from Taco Bell that when it comes to food, flavor is far more important than what goes into it. What is Taco Bell beef made of? Who gives a fuck? It's made of deliciousness and satisfaction (well, 15 minutes of satisfaction and an hour or so of diarrhea, but those 15 minutes are well worth it.)
I was experimenting with sugar to try and make something reminiscent of rock candy, but without taking a whole week to do it, so I figured I would boil my sugar, add something grainy for the sugar to crystallize around and pour it into a lined glass, then when it hardens, pull it out of the cup and break it into pieces. It formed perfect glasslike hard candy.
After looking at the ingredients on the package, I realize that Kool-Aid is mostly citric acid.
Needless to say that expanded the flavor options for the hard candy that I'm making to sell.
