Watch strawberry candy being made on old Victorian machine!

/ by

This candy machine is from the 1890s! A man named Greg Cohen restored it so it can make candy again. See for yourself!

“Public displays of confection” HAHA!

    Applause for Greg! I saw an analog of this and I think the second life is charming, even for the machine. However, what kind of jokes? Any Victorian mechanism involuntarily reddens if it is demonstrated on YouTube. Especially, if this is about heart-shaped strawberry candy. Ha! Thank you, Pee-wee!
