    17 Candy Cane GIFs That Will Get You Into The Holiday Spirit

    A precise, scientific explanation in candy making.

    1. So first, they get this mushy candy stuff and knead it with two shovels and a giant robotic presser.

    2. And then, they twirl it around with this machine thingy. The mushy candy stuff turns white because of the air.

    Discovery

    Tiny, tiny, tiny, bubbles.

    3. Then they shape that stuff into a log.

    Discovery

    Hands are not robotic. They are human.

    4. Next, they get another mushy candy thing, and turn that stuff red with food coloring.

    Discovery

    5. They roll the white and red candy mushy things together, and torch that mofo so it's easier to process through the machines.

    Discovery

    The machines are everything.

    6. They squeeze it down until it's the width of an actual candy cane.

    Discovery

    So right now, it's still one giant rope of candy.

    7. It curves because of the heat.

    Discovery

    Trippy, yo.

    8. Next, they cut the candy with this rapid cutting machine.

    Discovery

    Like a samurai robot.

    9. And then it goes through this machine thingy...

    Discovery

    10. And then this happens...

    Discovery

    11. Then the plastic wrapping goes on top of the candy cane.

    Discovery

    12. Somehow, the plastic wraps itself around the candy cane.

    Discovery

    Probably magic.

    13. They close off the loose ends with some heat.

    Discovery

    And it twirls like crazy... just because.

    14. Next, the machine bends the candy sticks so they look like actual candy canes.

    Discovery

    Heat is involved somehow. I think.

    15. And then, this robot grabs random candy canes and puts them into a box.

    Discovery

    Smart robot.

    16. And finally, the boxes get pushed somewhere.

    Discovery

    Who knows...

    17. And that's how you make...
