Facey Neck : 9:31 Poor kid thought he was gonna get some candy, but then gravity interfered and Little Boy went without. What a tragedy.

Stephanie Keck : I've never heard gros michel pronounced that way. I've always heard it pronounced 'groh mee-SHELL.' Sorry, couldn't resist. ;)

2sudonim : "Gross Michael" It was a French name, Gros Michel. As such, it's pronounced "grow Michelle".

Thomas Bangalter reading a newspaper : Why does grape candy not taste like grapes?

Gergő Turán : I don't know why youtube recommended this channel to me, but I'm glad it did.

Godzilla McDolan : I don't know why this was in my recommendations but hey, I ain't complaining

Karpov Liam : It's almost like glass making.

WolfofLedgend : I really want to make the 2.5 hr drive to tally just to watch you make candy. If I called, would you be able to tell me when you're planning on making candy? So I could take a little trip?

Lunna8457 : You should make strawberry rhubarb custard candy. It's my grandmothers favorite

Viktor Hansen : awwww now i really regret the times I left the bananas to spoil on the kitchen counter. I'm not gonna let that happen again... well, I'll try my best by reminding myself of this.

Cyborg Panda : Do u ship to the uk?

Jwend392 : Did the book teach you how to defend yourself against an assailant armed with a banana?

Jennifer Dantes : Hello lofty pursuits! Big fan of the channel, and plan to visit Tallahassee in the future! I have a question/suggestion though, have you ever made an image of a rainbow or clover in your hard candy? I think it'd be a good theme for St.Patricks Day (Even though it's a long way away)

Kevin Byrne : This reminds me of Victorian glass makers, who would melt together bundles of colored glass rods and then twist them or embed them in clear glass -- making all sorts of wild designs.

Ms. Nohotyoga : I don't think it's very nice trying to scare children into thinking bananas will disappear 🍌

Mischa Jones : do you guys ship to Europe? I would relly like some banana candy

Crash : We ordered candy a bit ago. My favorite was the blueberry. I didn't get much. My ten year old ate most of it.

Gavin Harshbarger : question, have you ever hit your rist on the hook? id realy like to know

Fell : The trilateral symmetry of the banana is actually due to chromosomal triploidy; the banana plant has three sets of every chromosome, whereas in nature it would generally have just two, like us. This is also what renders bananas infertile, and prevents their seeds from developing. In nature, a triploid banana plant would be sterile, a genetic dead end, but human intervention seized what would have been a fatal genetic error and turned it into a huge advantage. Now there are many times more triploid bananas than there are diploid.

Kes Berry : Why don't we have this in the UK

OodleMyNoodle : I just subbed and I think you should do an eclipse candy

Ezra Neal : You guys should do a live video

plantpun : I like the illustrations you added during the modeling of the bananas. It really helps to visualize what each step contributes to the shape of the candy.
